It’s never easy to say goodbye to a loved one, especially one that’s been there with you through thick and thin. And that was the relationship between surfer/photographer Ben Moon and his dog, Denali.
In June 2004, Ben was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. Throughout the surgeries, treatments, and procedures, Denali never left his side, even when they tried to make him leave the hospital room.
My favorite quote from Ben in the video is, “When someone you love walks through the door, even if it happens five times a day, you should go totally insane with joy.” And you can see that it truly applies for the duo. They leaned on each other for love and support and Denali’s presence played a huge part in Ben’s recovery.
However, as what happens with age, Denali grew tired and weak… Ben did everything he could for his companion but it was finally time to let him go.
This incredible tribute, tells the story of their adventures through Denali’s perspective. It’s a story of gratitude, friendship, hardships, triumphs and love.
