Look at these two (2)… They’re like: “Where just looking out”
“at the window together!” Good wonderful,
beautiful morning Pawdience! We’re going camping today! Hey guys! So I wasn’t even going to…
Turn this into a video. but as many of you know if you
watch our vlog channel at @SnowDogsVlogs, my husband (Jamie) and I (Jessica) recently
did an eight (8) day long camping trip with Memphis and Kira for our
seventeenth (17th) year wedding anniversary and I kept thinking about the footage I had
from Shelby on her last camping trip which is what you are seeing here. I didn’t filmed when we we’re up there
to make a ‘Camping With The Dogs’ video for this channel (@GoneToTheSnowDogs).
I think part of the reason was because I think… I kind of knew deep down
that was going to be her (Shelby’s) last trip. I don’t know, I just didn’t wanted
to film it in that way. So, I did a vlog about it and you can see
the full vlogs over on the @SnowDogsVlogs channel. But, I didn’t really do anything for this channel and
after coming back from our trip, it’s been… You know, three (3) weeks now
since we lost Shelby. I was looking at this footage and
I really just wanted to share it with you guys and put it up here, because I know
not everybody here watches our vlogs channel. So, I kind of just wanted to share these clips.
These little moments that we had with Shelby during our last camping trip with her.
You can see here the blanket… She had a little blanket that we had
to keep covering her with because she was having
some issues with getting… I don’t know if it was cold,
but she would shake a little bit and her blanket seemed to help her.
This was one of the walks I took with her around the campground.
I tried to make sure to take her by herself just as many times
I did with the other dogs. Just… I don’t know, to have
a little bit of extra time with her. I kind of just let her do
whatever she wanted to do when I walked her.
This walk that I did filmed she did really good on.
There was a couple times when we took her for walks
around the campground and she just… She couldn’t do it.
Either her legs just didn’t wanted to go or she was too tiered. I think we all kind of knew… The inevitable was coming
while we we’re camping… But, we still tried to make
the best out of the trip. I think, we did.
I think we made some really good memories. Greg came along with us.
For those of you that don’t know… Greg was Shelby’s favorite person
in the entire world. Our friend Eric came and brough
his dog Illana Then, Charles and Thor.
Sheby’s boyfriend Thor (@ThorUnleashed) also made the eleventh (11th) hour trip
to drive up with us and go camping. It was really, really nice that everybody
kind of came together knowing this could be her (Shelby’s) last time
and we all just really celebrated her life more than anything else… This was one of the waterfalls we
took her to. There was a short little hike that we decided to take
her on and was only maybe a mile all the way around… But, we took her and got to see
that waterfall and played in the water. This was her at night… In her little blanket… Aww! Oh… Greg feeding her…
The hardest part about this trip was trying to get her to eat. Kidney disease is… Horrible! Is a horrible disease and
I feel bad for any of you that ever had to experience it… Getting your dogs to eat during it… Is one of the toughest things
because they don’t feel good. She (Shelby) was on anti-nausea
medication and she was on medicine to help her entice her appetite,
but nothing was working… Greg made her some
chicken liver in the fire and she liked that. Oh… This year was actually
the last hike that Shelby ever did. We, Charles and Thor had actually left
and then we met up with them again to do this hike. This was… I thought was taking a picture
but apparently I was filming for ten (10) seconds which is great, cause you get to see
a little bit of behind the scenes of us without the dogs trying to take pictures! We did get a really good picture. If you want to see it…
@ThorUnleashed posted a video of us with the picture as well. Shelby was like: “I’m just going to lay down, guys!” “This is good! This is my spot!” Aww!
How fun, that was, so fun! One of the other things
that happened while camping was we saw the Northern Lighs. Both of these next two (2)
sections were edited photos that I made, but I did took
these photos and edited then on a little app to make them
look like they were moving. We saw the Northern Lighs three (3)
nights in a row actually while we were up there. I don’t know…
It just kind of gave me a little bit of comfort. Feeling like… Shiloh and Oakley were looking
down on us and telling us “Everything was going to be okay!”
I don’t know why, that’s what made me feel like but, it kind of did… But… I don’t know… Talking to you guys is
like therapy. I talk on here and then
I go back thru and read the comments. So, maybe that’s what this was or maybe,
I just didn’t wanted to loose this footage of her (Shelby) on her last
camping trip. So there it was guys! Like I said, if you want to see
in full, is over on the @SnowDogsVlogs channel. Thanks for listening/reading to me today.
Hopefully thinks will be back to semi-normal eventually. Thanks for sticking with us, you guys!
We really appreciate it. Stay positive and dream big!
