Saying Goodbye To our BEST FRIEND Polar! Emotional Dog Funeral.

today is the day guys today is gonna be a very very difficult day fortunately for us we have a lot of work to do this morning and today anyway the kids slept with polar downstairs last night in the basement and kind of had a last sleepover with him and as I was laying there last night in bed I was just thinking like when you have a puppy and you bring it in your life and they're kind of a pain because they choose stuff up and they do all these things but it brings so much joy and happiness and fun well and then and then they just become part of your family and then over the years you know they have these different events that happen then the dogs part of all the camping all the outdoor stuff in the backyard the kids playing in every picture in the backyard and a video that we've had like includes that the animal included polar and so it's gonna be hard not seeing that I know today is gonna be difficult but it's it's days after that or gonna be difficult and then I thought you know it's like losing family members which we all do on a regular basis and it's just so hard it's it's something that just some of you have probably already gone through it recently or maybe you're going through right now it's just something that we have to go through and I thought why do we have to go through that this is this is something that is inevitable which means it's absolutely going to happen in this life here on this earth and I thought why do we have to go through this why why why that's because it's supposed to be that way we're supposed to understand that we came here for a reason and we're here for a reason but we also have to go and we can't be here forever nothing lasts and remains forever except for those relationships that we build except for those memories that we make those lasts forever and so we have those memories with polar we have those memories and we have that relationship and and those are the things that are going to be going away and so anyway just thinking about that last night I was then you I'm sure a lot of you had those same questions we're just like why does this have to happen it's part of life we I think we have to you know we have to fill this sorrow we have to fill this pain so we can understand I can understand what joy is we can understand the opposite of and so we can make a decision each day to just get up and go and and keep working through life because the harder we work the better things are in terms of in with our relationships and everything in life so anyway I'm gonna go wake the kids up it's it's time for them to get up and see how polar did Oh Charlie's down here too huh Charlie's a poof kind of the sleep guys every good eye buddy good morning football you go outside this poor guy going up the stairs you can do it buddy come on see that that right there is why we have to do what we have to do I'm gonna help him we got polar out and got him on down the stairs and he immediately just laid it right down to tired giving up those stairs and then coming down these three three four steps just too much for him I'm buddy it's all right he's just tired just tired me so I was just looking out the backyard minute ago watching polar and thinking you know what he's he's looking better he's jumping up really fast and he's just looks more healthy and and then he decided not to go the direction he was gonna go and he decided to go back to lay back down he just kind of fell on the lawn so I'm like okay we'll do this but I am honestly I'm not I'm angry right now I'm like trying to get over it but I'm just angry we're sitting in the driveway literally sitting in our driveway running late not running late we sat in the car we got in the car on time but we're just sitting here and because this is Polar's last this is him leaving and it's hard it's the little kids don't really know what's going on if they still are just kind of doing what they normally do a bit it's just hard I don't like that we have to make this decision I'm actually quite angry memory one of the memories I really like this polar was sleeping on the trampoline outside in the summertime we would always sit on the trampoline outside we'd always sleep on the trampoline outside and I really liked it when polar and Charlie or both there I'm gonna sleep on the trampoline trampoline that's the same thing with me really mm-hmm and everything one thing I really like about polo is just like he's super sweet one thing I like about polar is he can view ourselves all the time he dies he could still be with us what I like about polar like calm until when your like sleeping with him rolling me crazy yeah Travis great the reason we're taking puller down to my dad's farm instead of having him at our house is the farm is our happy place it's been in our family longer than we've been a family and it's just a place that we love to go and play and be peaceful and be together as a family and so we're supposed to be meeting the vet at at the farm at 3:30 well it's 335 and we've been stuck in traffic for awhile and I want to say stuck I mean look at this we just say hearing wait hopefully the vets late it doesn't yeah we're just stopped there just a stop sign if they're holding everyone back anyway I've been sent you're thinking about polar some my favorite memories of polar Branson's asleep but anyway we were camping one time with the scouts and we had a box of wood that we brought in the box was just a small box but anyway I just end there thinking about that because it was starting to get cold and polar didn't want to sit on the cement that we were standing on we're camping around the fire and didn't wanna get close to fire either well we look over and he's trying to climb inside the box like he literally has all four legs and his bum setting in the box and all of a sudden so he looked over the box broke open and anyway polar trying to get inside the box and then another one of my favorite memories is just the way polar was this kind of explains away polar really was in terms of our family dog is we slept outside all of us decided to sleep outside he slept on the trampoline with the kids and Sarah actually she said that she would sleep out there with us too well she I got bugs at my nose she started that bugs really bothering her and so she went in and and then a few hours later I heard something out front it was like a noise out front and I and polar immediately jumped up from where he was laying with the kids and he ran to the front gate to the side gate of the house sniffed underneath that did a little bark and then he went from there and he started sniffing around to where that he heard the noise and then it came back and went around the perimeter of the yard went to the other gate check things out came back sniffed each one of the kids heads and then came over and sniffed my head just to make sure everybody was okay and then he went back and laid down with the kid and that's pretty much what polar was he was just that's that's his job that's I think that's the thing I'm having the hardest time with this is him this is his job we're releasing him from his job and that's hard because he believes that his job is to protect us and he's done such a good job but now he's just so old and and he just won't let go and I think it's because he he believes that he still needs to get stay here and protect us so anyway those are some my favorite memories of polar my favorite memories up about polar like Johnny said polar would always make sure that everyone in the yard was safe if the kids would go outside to play he would stay right next to them and he'd always sniff them and walk around the perimeter sniff them and once he did that a couple times and he knew they were safe he would lay down in the shade and just watch him play another one my favorite memories is just the day that we got polar our other dog had died in the night and I had to tell Branson when he got home from school that she had died and he was just so heartbroken and Johnny called me and said one of my buddies just my buddies has puppies they're only five weeks old so we wouldn't be able to get one for a week and I was like I don't know if we want to get another dog right away we'll talk about it later and that night johnny was late coming home from work and he walked in and he had cute little white fluffy little puppy and it made the heartache of the day just disappear with the love of that puppy you guys know that Poehler went to was stolen from our house and taken to Las Vegas which was for us like six or seven hours away stolen from our yard and we actually got him back after a month and then they offered us four thousand dollars for him Polar's had a crazy life he broke his hip when he was a puppy jumped out to the backside of my brother's truck and broke his hip and that was just young he was only a couple months old yeah he's had a crazy life it's been ice fishing a ton of times fishing it was just like.he up until he couldn't run or anything like that he was always going outdoors with us everywhere he went everywhere with his camping and fishing okay guys we're at the farm now this is the hard part let's get out the vet is here waiting for us I think what we'll do is we just let fuller wander around a little bit we'll see what the vet wants to do from that point and he's already getting tired I was already just kind of by wandering he thought he was gonna be able to run around but he's not he's not gonna be able to pull her anybody older so when we pulled in I realized that this is the first time in two-and-a-half years that I've been to the family farm I wasn't here for a couple months before the mission and it's been about two months as I've been home so it's been about yeah a little over two and a half years which is I love this place so much and this was one of the places that I really really missed when I was on my mission because during the summers before I've come down and help with the yard I'd help clean up I'd help fix anything that was broken so yeah two and a half years since I've been here it's really good to be back but not the day not today to be back so we brought this blanket so that we can lay pull her on it and then we planned to actually bury him in as well so we don't have to mess with his body or anything afterwards so I know this might sound a little bit creepy a lot of like I don't know morbid almost talking about like body and all that stuff but it's part of life this is this is really this is a part of life it's a hard part of life but it is a part of life and so what do you guys think about right here this is this is a good spot this is gonna be quick and simple we just talked to the vet she's just gonna give him one shot we're not gonna show you the shot don't worry about that it's getting one shot and then he's gonna go to sleep and and he won't really feel anything it's just good you guys want to tell him goodbye you I'm gonna be the one to say bipolar why don't you guys go around and find some big rocks that you can put on top of we're pullers buried do you want to do that go look around and find some big rocks okay and then we'll remember we're pullers that okay the butterfly oh cool let's see whoa how'd you catch tonight that was polar spirit telling you he's happy welcome back you'll see him again soon okay she may be safe prayer guys the big car is from me what's your favorite thing about both or best memory well I love about Poehler is he is very very loyal he was always making sure we were okay and everyone was there and he would us before himself make sure before he was pleased that everyone else was and then one of my favorite memories is when he would always come and sleep in our room with us one of my favorite memories what I thought of his when I was a little one day because I've got aside like every single day and I'd stayed there and then I'd eat dinner and then go back outside and one day it was raining super hard and I liked the rain and I was like soaking wet and polar like came out from one of the porch and even though he didn't like thunder or anything I was sitting against the wall and I just like soaking wet and getting rained on and he came and just sat with me and we just sat there in the rain and yeah that's one of them I said but I love we love polar still they've been a couple hours and I miss him a lot I keep expecting to look outside and see him but he's not there but we still love him it's been kind of a rough day but we know that he is healthier and he's happier and he's not in pain anymore which is a good thing even though it's sad it's best for him with you guys if you have something everyone goes through something that's hard and difficult and rough but my advice to you is don't hide your emotions show them don't bundle them up because eventually they will explode and it's not fun to explode so share your emotions people can help you and people will be there for you to help make it less difficult or to push through the difficult thing we love you guys and as always you are worth it I believe in you you
