"There's no easy way to say goodbye to a friend, especially when they've supported you through your darkest times." - Ben Moon

The first few times I saw this video in my newsfeed, I knew I couldn't watch it. As in, I wouldn't be able to see through my tears to actually watch it. My dog, Yukon, has been my adventure companion for the past 12 years, and I dread the day our time together transitions from real life to memories. I finally watched the video and am so glad I did. It's beautiful.

Ben Moon and his dog, Denali, have been though a lot together: living in a van, exploring countless landscapes, picking up chicks, modeling, fighting cancer. The friendship that grew between them was almost spiritual. Ben's brilliant tribute to his dog is both human and humane, and it shows the special bond between two friends. Get your tissues ready, you just may need them as you watch this touching story as told from Denali's perspective.

This wonderful film means so much to me and my 13 year old best friend. Sure, she can't do the giant hikes anymore, but we take fun short day hikes, and she never leaves my side. Dog friends are truly the best friends!
Kat, thank you so much for sharing! You got me. I cried.
