This Guy Lives His Life With A Taxidermied Dog Best Friend
Looking to be creeped out at every possible interval? Good, we’ve got you.
There’s a guy on Instagram with the handle, @mydeaddogandme
Yep - that’s, My Dead Dog and Me.
We were too. It turns out, a guy named Mitch couldn’t bear to part with his beloved pup Pheobe when she passed away - so he decided he wouldn’t.
Stopped along highway 202, during a coastal road trip that I took Phoebe on, at this country bar and after waking in, I asked to bring phoebe in to join me at the bar. I asked due to the many taxidermied animals on the walls. At first the bartender looked at me like I was crazy, but after hearing me tell stories about her, she said bring it on. I brought her in and immediately everyone was shocked about how real she looks. I instantly met many new friends and currently known as the “comedian of the night.” #mydeaddogandme #phoebethetaxidermieddog
He turned… or made Pheobe taxidermy, meaning she was ‘stuffed’.
This meant even though she had passed away, she went with him everywhere - and he’s now begun to document their outings together; recently dressing Phoebe up for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Phoebe had a fantastic time bringing in the New Years with one of her buddies, Dobson. She had her tin foil hat on to brush away the toxic from our horrid p.o.s. Orange asshat man. Down with trump as they say! #mydeaddogandme #deadandthriving #happy2018 #2018 #newyearsamedeadphoebe #downwithtrump #fucknazis #fucktrump #taxidermiedanimals #taxidermied #dogsofinstagram #doggos #doggosofinstagram #portlandoregon #portland #taxidermy
All packed and on our way to Leavenworth, Washington for the holidays with my folks, sister, @madeleinepearl , and her bf, @cadewallace If anyone of Phoebe’s lovely followers happen to be there, send me a message and let’s meet for a beer, or a bowl, or a joint or all three! Phoebe’s especially looking forward to go sledding for her first time. #mydeaddogandme #deadandthriving #leavenworth #holidayseasonshrimps #doggosofinstagram #death #taxidermied #pet
But what do people think?!
One photo in particular had shed light on some of the issues Mitch faces with a taxidermied best friend.
The photo shows Phoebe in the car with the windows up, there’s a note on the window that reads to passersby, ‘Don’t worry, the dog is already dead. She’s taxidermied, please don’t break my window. :)’
Yeah, I don’t know how to react either…
