My Furry Fit Friend Dunston is Gonefit friend

***This post is more for me than you, most likely. I loved this dog even far more than I realized. He was special and we spent every moment together since I work from home. A lot of you have been asking about him and loved him in my fitness videos. I wanted to thank you all for reaching out to me. It really has meant a lot.***

I always loved cats. They didn’t lick or bark and liked to snuggle.

Until THIS dog came into my life.
Somehow Dunston knew I didn’t like to be licked.
And he only barked at strangers until they would pet him, that is…which I think was just his clever way of getting what he wanted.

This guy has followed me every where I’ve gone for the past decade.

I could hardly go to the restroom without him.
He wouldn’t rest in his bed, til I was perfectly positioned in my work spot. He always seemed just as married to his daily routine and obsessive compulsive as I was.
He worked out with me every single day (heck, he’s even in the Asylum infomercial–see below) and loved being tucked in tight at night, just like I did.

During some of the toughest times of my life, he was always there..wondering why I would cry, cocking his head as if he understood and was sent as a reminder that everything was going to be ok.

I don’t even want to imagine my life without him.
I honestly don’t even know how.
Turns out he had either a stroke or a brain tumor that escalated things quickly 3 days ago. Before that, while he was mostly deaf and blind, his spirit was young! Most wouldn’t have even known outside of my clapping and yelling and waving my arms wildly every time I took him out.

My heart is broken. I never knew a dog could do that, just as I never knew a dog could bring such joy and value and happiness into my life.

He was our bud.
And he’s gone.
I’m so thankful for every moment we had. The pain is hard to bear.

The Day Dunston got Burpeed

He was my confidant, my best friend, my galloper, my furry fit friend and my bud. I will him so much, but his memories will live on with me forever.
