“It’s okay Ben, you go on ahead. I’ll catch up with you when it’s time” -Bender Oak Cannon, my best friend and hiking buddy since 2008, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on September 25th, 2018. He loved scenic views more than the hikes, and he loved travel. He held on as long as he could, but as his hind legs started to shake, his face turned gray and stained with tears, his shoulders began to ache, watching my best friend grow weaker and fade was more than I could bear. I knew he was tired, but may his hike across the stars and into the mystic be free of pain, full of adventure and the knowledge that he was loved. I love you, telephone-head. Be free. #mybestfriend #bff #blackandtan #adoptdontshop #liveloverescue #thisiswhyihike #unlikelyhikers #dogsofinstagram #hikingdogsofinstagram #happytraildogs #rainbowbridge #memories #taketripstakepictures #makememories via Instagram https://ift.tt/2Dw5Qq4
