Thank you, sweet boy, for being you.
I was inspired by @longhaultrekkers Jen’s thank you exercise she did with her dog Sora before she passed, so I decided to write a list for Atlas and then I sat on the floor with him and told him what I am thankful to him for.
Atlas, thank you for kisses every morning.
Atlas, thank you for making me laugh constantly.
Atlas, thank you for forcing me to learn so much about dog training.
Atlas, thank you for helping me find friends and a sense of community through @instagram.
Atlas, thank you for getting me out on the trails, even when I’d rather be lazy.
Atlas, thank you for being so accepting and patient when we turned your world upside down and let Harper move in.
Atlas, thank you for being such a calming, comforting presence for me.
Atlas, thank you for always following me into the bathroom (though I still don’t need your help).
Atlas, thank you for your white toes, forehead wrinkles, and floppy ears.
Atlas, thank you for evening snuggles.
Atlas, thank you for being in my life.
With all the heartache in the world, it’s important to remember what we hold dear and why. I hope you will also be inspired to tell your dog what you’re thankful for.
