Country stars taking their pups out on the tour bus is accepted as it can be, and even welcome since they often share photos of their four-legged friends enjoying life on the road. But being a road dog isn’t for every canine, and Kacey Musgraves had a tough decision to make when it came to her fur baby, Pearl.

Kacey shared a photo of her beautiful pup on her Instagram page. In the caption, she shares their sweet story. “This is my girl, Pearl 🐶,” she writes. “We found each other the day after my 21st birthday. [Look at the last picture..!] Since then, she’s been through SO much [two car accidents, an amputation, a hip rod, etc.] and is still going strong. She’s been through so many chapters with me. So many houses. Relationships. Adventures. Triumphs. I’ve never had a soul connection like this with any animal before.”

Sadly, Kacey had to send Pearl away. She explains, “It makes me sad — she had to go live with my parents in Texas when I started touring. I had to face that the road did not suit her for many reasons. I’m grateful for the love and care she gets every day, and her quality of life is more important than anything, but it still hurts to miss her so much.”

Getting time with she and my family for my birthday was such a special treat for me. They leave in the morning. And no I'm not crying as I'm typing this…………..#yesiam 😩

Fortunately, though, Pearl enjoying life with Kacey’s parents in Texas, and while the singer-songwriter got to celebrate her August 21 birthday with her family, including Pearl, she admits that she was in tears at the thought of them leaving to head back home to Texas.

We can’t imagine how difficult that sacrifice was for Kacey, but it’s obvious that she considered what was in the dog’s best interest before she made the decision to send Pearl off to live with her mom and dad.

It’s tough being a parent, even of a pup.
