Captain Baloo + his First Mate Henry 🛶
Happy 5th Birthday Henry, Henricans , Bubba!! It feels like it’s only been 2 years since we adopted you, not 5, but we’re soaking in every single moment because there’s no other pup like you. You’re simply the best. Thank you for helping me grow and showing me how to be more present. Because no matter what happens, we have each other, and that’s really all we need ❤️ We love you way more than you’ll ever know. Happy birthday Henry!
Poor little Baloo had a bad allergic reaction to his vaccinations and at one point he could barely stand and couldn’t put any weight on one of his legs (swipe left for pic) 🥺 . Every time he moved, he’d cry out in pain which would make me immediately start bawling. So we went back to the vet and thank goodness they fixed him right up, if only for my own sanity. He’s finally back to being our little Baloo and now we’re headed to Michigan to visit some family and explore the Midwest (H+B’s first time in these states and mine too!!) We were actually suppose to leave Tuesday night, but plans change and B’s health is way more important than a few extra days on the road ❤️. . Titer Test - A simple blood test that checks your pet’s antibodies and allows you to know which vaccines need updating and which do not. Most pets don’t need booster shots every year, so ask your vet about this test! Thanks so much everyone for this info as we had no idea about this test and will always be getting it for H+B in the future :)
Good friends are hard to find, so when you find one, hold on tight 🧡
To squish these squishy faces is definitely a reason #whyihike 😊 @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Today is quite special because it’s Andre and I’s six year anniversary ☺️ We’re celebrating this weekend by backpacking into the woods with H+B, because it just wouldn’t feel right to without them! Thank you for being the best dad to Henry and Baloo, for making me laugh every single day, and for being my BEST friend. You’re one wonderful human Andre and all of us love you so freaking much ❤️
If you asked me ten years ago to describe my happy place, I’m pretty sure I would describe this. And if I didn’t, then I just had no idea what my happy place really was :)
I really, really love this little family I’ve got ❤️ . . Fave tights - @eddiebauer Guide Pro Trail Tights ... and they’re crazy on sale right now ☺️ #whyihike #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Baloo Unleashed | is Baloo always on a leash? This is one of our most frequent questions + the answer is nope! Sometimes he is, sometimes he isn’t, all depends on the situation 🌲. Like in this picture, we actually took Baloo’s harness off too. There was no one around, everything was quiet, and most importantly Baloo was very comfortable, so we made the decision that this was a safe time! More often though, he’ll have both his harness and leash on, but he’s free to roam (we aren’t holding the leash). He’s quite small and loves to chase bugs into the bushes so the leash makes it a lot easier to keep track of him, even if we aren’t physically holding it. The other reason we keep it on, is when we are on a trail with other people and dogs hiking, we can grab him if needed. Cat Tip: If you take your cat on a trail and hear other hikers with pups, yell out that you have a cat. Owners know their dogs, but they can’t do anything if they have no idea what they’re about to stumble upon! And when we’re holding the leash, it’s usually because we are on a busy trail and/or Baloo doesn’t feel 100% comfortable. Hope this helps if you were wondering! 🐾 We’re looking for our next question to answer in a post, so if you’ve got one comment below :)
Caught Baloo lovin’ on Henry 🥰
Best.Birthday.Ever. My little family and I went backpacking in New Mexico for my birthday and it could not have been more perfect. Once camp was set up, we hiked to the top of the dunes to watch the sun set over the white sand. As it was starting to get dark, I snuggled Henry and Baloo and smiled, thinking about how this is everything I ever wanted. Just when I thought things couldn’t possibly get any better, André pulled out a light up frisbee that he secretly had packed, and as the sky filled up with stars and the moon shone over the dunes, we played light up frisbee. I wish I could do a better job putting in to words how crazy, wonderful this felt, almost like a fairytale or a movie, as we ran + laughed chasing a blue light on top of white dunes. Later on, we headed back to camp and André surprised me one more time with this little cupcake 🧁. He lit it and sang Happy Birthday as Henry and Baloo laid in my lap. How in the world did I get this lucky? Somehow I did and I’m incredibly grateful for all three of them. I love you so much André, Henry and Baloo, thank you for making my birthday unforgettable. ❤️ @eddiebauer #WhyIHike #LiveYourAdventure #ebcontributor
The warmest, most coziest pillow 💕
I shall call him Squishy. And he shall be mine. And he shall be my Squishy 🐙
Hold me close & never let me go.
When your dog wears your hat better than you do.
Henry + Baloo, you deserve to see the world and I feel crazy lucky that I’m the human that gets to show it to you. So when @EddieBauer asked me #WhyIHike , I immediately thought of you two, H+B, because even though there are a million reasons why I hike, you are by far the most important one. ❤️ @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Why are H+B so close? Before we adopted Baloo, Henry was struggling with separation anxiety. Every time we came home he would be extremely stressed and almost hyperventilating. He really needed a friend, so we started looking for a kitten to adopt. After three months of searching, we finally found our little Baloo. His mother abandoned the litter, so when I introduced H+B, Baloo attached himself to Henry almost immediately. Within a few hours Baloo was kneading Henry’s tummy, looking for a teat, thinking he had finally found his mom. At first Henry didn’t know what to think, but quickly took Baloo in and now when we come home, we often find H+B sound asleep, snuggling in our bed. We had no idea that they would both help each other so much. Baloo soothed Henry’s anxieties and Henry became the mom Baloo so desperately needed. No wonder Baloo thinks he’s a dog!
Because Henry and Baloo deserve a spa day too 🧖🏼♀️
Professional explorers at your service!
The best dreams come from snuggling your bestie and your favorite treat, @bestbullysticks . Henry can be quite the picky eater, but will never turn down some @bestbullysticks because they’re THAT tasty and are a great natural alternative to rawhide! 🐶🙌🏼 #thankfulforbestbullysticks • tdbbs llc #sponsored post
