In December 2019, Clare shared a photo of Honey along with a reflective message about the past year. "We all have our ups and downs and things in our lives that can weigh heavy on us. No one is exempt from this," she wrote. "But I hope you all have something in the midst of that -no matter what- large or small, that makes your soul catch fire and radiate out of your chest like sunbeams. So strong that others can't help but feel it! Hold onto that."
Her December 2019 post also included a photo of little Elbie.
"Merry Christmas, you filthy animals!" Clare wrote in December 2019.
In April 2020, Clare shared a photo of Honey along with a personal update. "As with all of us, I've had my ups and downs and days of despair and loneliness. But for some reason these poppies touched me and made me smile!" she wrote. "Having the time to see these gorgeous flowers soaking up the sunshine really brought me joy. It's the little things. What was your little thing today?"
Clare's favorite way to get rid of the Sunday scaries? Hiking with Honey.
In July 2019, Clare shared a cute shot of herself with Honey and Elbie.
Because you know you're wondering, Clare also shared what Elbie's favorite treats are.
Elbie is the perfect selfie buddy.
"Got all dressed up in his glittery bow tie- little did he know we were going to Home Depot!" Clare wrote in May 2017.
In January 2019, Clare expressed how much joy she gets from spending time with and looking at photos of Elbie. "It's my little nugget hanging with me in the sunshine today while we plant all the veggies!" she wrote.
Clare cleverly used the hashtag "#puppytanlines" to share a summer update.
Elbie happens to be the best lakeside companion.
"Do you even know how much I love this old boy!? He looks night and day different from when I first rescued him, but not just in his outward appearance," Clare wrote in December 2018. "He seriously smiles from his soul these days, and it makes me the happiest/luckiest human ever to have him in my life!!! Ps- Just realized I haven't posted a pic in awhile."
"Dang I just love his smell," she wrote in March 2018.
Looks like Honey's favorite activity is doing absolutely nothing.
Dogs can't technically vote, but in 2016 she shared a photo of Elbie to send a powerful message.
"Waking up the day after Thanksgiving taking a mental tally of how many pieces of pie you actually consumed," Clare joked in the caption to this 2016 Thanksgiving 'gram of Elbie.
This is snuggling at its finest.

Honey is actually the cutest.
