Karli, Boonie, Renegade. Karli & Boonie lived the first year of their lives here. They wandered these hills & fields with Boonie's mama and learned whatever it is a pack of domestic dogs learns when given the freedom to be wild (until dinner time.) We then had to move to Town. Five years were spent in a 2-bedroom apartment with a patch of grass for quick potty trips, sidewalks along paved roads for a real leg stretching. Very, very rare trips to the off-leash dog park (and only as long as it was empty) and the occasional camping trip so all of us could get some fresh air. We prayed for years to return to this place. To come back home. As the girls (and Boston) got older, our longing to give them this life deepened. They transitioned to apartment dogs flawlessly but never lost their stamina or their own desire for freedom. They deserved to stretch their legs as long and as hard as they could manage and come home panting and exhausted. They deserved to dig their claws into dirt, mud & clay, and rarely if ever, traverse over hot concrete. They deserve the blessing of a cool pond or spring to splash right into instead of being teased with puddles in a parking lot. So it is with emense joy that i share this photo of three furry blurs on a snowy hillside, in the land the Lord gave to my mother. Unleashed, unbound, unrestrained. As all wild things ought to be.
The love of my life 💞 the unconditional love you give me can never be matched. You listen to me complain, cry, and whine. You cuddle up to me when I’m happy, stressed, or sad. You protect me when you sense something isn’t right. I didn’t know the impact that you would have on me the day I picked you. I wouldn’t change that moment for anything in the world. You’ve taught me a lot and will continue to do so throughout our lives together. I hope to bring you around the world with me soon. You are my family and always will be. You’ve left your print on my soul. I love you, Milo 💕 #dogsofinstagram#unconditionallove#pitbullsofinstagram#pitmix#shepherdmix#rottweilermix#dogmom
