I made it to CAMP 2!!! Wahooooo! We are in the first rotation so I am not headed to the summit just yet, but we are getting acclimatized at the higher altitudes before going to the top! It has been a rough couple days, especially after getting the news about Alphie.. He was my best friend, sidekick, my everything.
Alphie passed away in my mums arms early on 24th April after having a stroke. Even though he was sick, this was a little unexpected but I’m glad he died peacefully and with my mum. The universe works in crazy ways and the timing of all of it is wild. I know he held on for me to get to Basecamp. I was lucky enough to say goodbye to him over FaceTime and our amazing dog sitters went to get Pennie from home and she was able to also say goodbye.
Alphie really was his own person! So much character and personality. I had him since he was 5 weeks old and he made it all the way to 13 years old. We lived in over 15 homes together, two countries and in his last year he travelled with me, even getting to go business class on one flight! If this dog could talk... I know he meant so much to lots of us. You will still see him in a couple more of our workouts over the next few months so we will get to enjoy him there!
There are so many things I am going to miss about Alphie, like his little tongue that sticks out of his mouth, or how he puts his paw on me when he wants to be pet.. While it is so sad, I need to focus on all the good times and memories that we had together. We really have been through it all. He was one of a kind with his old British man personality and I am grateful for the 13 years that we had together. I am sad for Pennie because her best friend is also now gone, but I know until I get home, my Mum is giving her all the love and cuddles she needs. RIP Alphie, I love you!
