Wild Wyatt Whispers in the Wind

Tour the wild stretch of desert where we installed Wyatt Ray Dawg’s memorial sign, dedicated to his incredible life on the road.

Wild Wyatt on the Road

Wyatt spent almost all of his life on the road. He traveled coast-to-coast several times, and all the way to Alaska. That boy saw more places than most people get to enjoy during their lives.

Wyatt was a road dawg for 12 years.

When it came time to crate a memorial marker, it was only fitting that Admin created a design that reflects his wandering spirit. Take a look.

Since we are perpetual nomads, we don’t have a backyard where we can place a memorial marker. So we installed the sign in the wild stretch of desert where we have spent winter for the last few years. It’s across from our favorite RV park, in a very sweet pet memorial area where Wyatt took his last stroller ride. This is a place where the coyotes yip and yowl every night of the week, where we lay in bed under the stars and listen to echoes of Wyatt’s spirit dancing in the wind.

Wyatt was always at home wherever we roamed.

The sign was made possible by our very generous Tripawds family members who chipped in for a group gift. Thank you so much, you know who you are! And the chimes in the soundtrack are a beautiful tribute gift from longtime Tripawds friend Heather. Wyatt’s marker was designed by Admin but made by Hicks Graphics.

We feel grateful that we had him in our life at all, and knowing how many people he touched is the greatest gift. Thank you for loving our very special road dawg.

  8. Your Mom and Dad gave so much thought to where and how to pay tribute to you. And boy oh boy, they nailed it.
    I remember the trail they took you on for your last “earth ride” and how you were barking with such glee. Yes indeedy, you gave voice to the wind that day. Uou made sure it could be furever heard by your hooman whenever they retraced the many places you visited during your winter stays there.
    Your Dad created your memorial with a vision that could only be designed by the love in his heart he has for you. It’s so beautiful. Everyt about this tribute is so beautiful.
    I have to say, the lovely sound of your wind chimes gave me a little lump in my throat. Very quickly though, the sound surrounded me with your peace and with a knowing that you ARE part of Nature. You ARE part of the wind that makes the chimes sing. You are part of the sparkle that makes the your star twinkle.

    Btw, I ALWAYS smile when I see your banners. It reminds me, reminds us all, what a joyous earth life you experienced! And you did it all your way😎
    Im so glad your Mom and Dad shared your memorial marker with us and all the reasons why the place they decided on that spot. It made us feel like we were there celebrating all the wonderful adventures you had. Thank you for including us.
    We love you Wyatt Rayβ™₯️
