If you are a fan of AcousticTrench, then you have probably seen the YouTuber playing along with his guitar loving dog for the past 12 years. Although he had many fans on YouTube, there was no doubt that she was his number one fan. Unfortunately, Maple the guitar-loving dog passed away on June 17, 2021.
In order to share the news with the YouTube community, he shared a video of playing What a Wonderful World while Maple sat lovingly by his side. The video was entitled: “Saying Goodbye”.
AcousticTrench then went on to write a very touching tribute of Maple:
“Yesterday I had to say goodbye to my best friend. Maple passed away peacefully during the night, while I held her in my arms. We have spent every moment together for over 12 years, doing everything together. I adopted her from a rescue shelter and the first time we met she tackled me, leaping into my arms, wagging her tail so hard and with a smiling face full of love.

We went on so many adventures together, and she was always there for me with her unconditional love through difficult times. Music helped to soothe and comfort her, especially when she was feeling anxious during thunderstorms and fireworks so I would play for her to help calm her down. She would lay beside me with her head in my lap and listen to the guitar until she fell asleep.
I feel so lucky to have had her in my life, the bond we shared is indescribable and my heart is aching.”
“There are a lot of videos that I filmed with Maple which I never posted on YouTube, or videos I didn’t finish editing, that I might release in the future. I hope that some of the moments we shared together over the years have helped to bring some joy or comfort to you. Thank you for the love and support you have shown us,” he added.
He finished the tribute by saying, “I love you Maple.”
Rest in peace sweet Maple. You’ll be missed.
