Missing my baby girl so much 💙 I’ve been having a hard time with the loss of our sweet giant beauty, Mali. She was the happiest energy, most loving & goofy dog I’ve ever had ❤️ I am always going to miss her 130lb morning snuggles, her hour glass painted head waiting for us at the front door, our trio of pups grazing in the yard together like happy farm animals🍃🐶🐰🐭, her going swimming & then digging muddy holes & then going swimming again 😏, her Houdini brain full of skill and mischief, her singing when @justinkawikayoung would play the piano, her huge bear paws, her playing like wild beasts with her other giant siblings Dora, Lady & Vinnie, and how she would always come thank us after every meal she ate 😊, to name a few. — I never told you what happened to her... Some workers finishing our patio caulking left our gate open 😞 and our dogs ran out for another one of their adventures. That day in Nashville it was extremely humid and about 95 degrees.
We found Dorothy after 6 hours of searching & luckily she was ok, but we never found Malibu. Someone called us 2 days later saying they found her but she had passed away & it was from heat stroke. 😞💔She was only 4 1/2 years old. She had wandered 2 miles through the woods & her big body couldn’t take it. So many things have gone through my mind about that day and the grief is overwhelming. She was our baby and we couldn’t protect her. It was a huge reminder what nature is capable of, and also how people need to be more responsible. That week @justinkawikayoung & I had so much help in our search for her everyday, we were surrounded by our amazing friends, and they were there with us to say goodbye to her. 💙💛 I couldn’t have done it without you guys @nellyjoymusic @jasonreeves @billyhawn 🌅. Honestly we felt so much love from everyone who sent letters & flowers & kept checking in on us. 💗 Last thing, I did research on Heat Stroke & learned how common it actually is. People not even realizing it’s happening to their pets. Keep your animal friends cool, don’t lock them outside in the summer, don’t take them on long walks when it’s too hot, never leave them in cars, & make sure they always have water 💦 ❤️~Cc
