Millions Befriended Fritz & His Loyal Companion Donnybrook (of @Old.Time.Hawkey) Whose Soft-Spoken Walks in the Woods Offer Reprieve from Pandemic Stress
U.P., MICHIGAN, USA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where Fritz & Donnybrook call home, offers nature lovers around the world a reprieve from stress with guided walks in the woods by a new friend millions discovered on social media. One of TikTok’s most popular channel personalities; Fritz and his loyal Australian Sheperd Donnybrook of @Old.Time.Hawkey have taken millions of viewers (even Justin Bieber) on a walk in the woods as a reprieve from stressful days. Setting out from a modest cabin in Michigan’s U.P., the “yoop”, they take buddies canoeing down the river and drop a fishing line and say, “hello” to the local catch and then head back to the little cabin to share a cold pop.
It’s a simple way to take a recommended break for good mental health during these challenging times. According to The American Institute of Stress (Stress.org) Executive Director Will Heckman states; “Over 75% of all doctor visits can be directly connected to stress-related issues and the pandemic has magnified the impact. Stress affects us all and it’s important to take mental time-outs throughout the day – we think following Old Time Hawkey and enjoying a time out with Fritz and Donnybrook is a great start.”
What started as a walk through the woods for Fritz & Donnybrook quickly became a little slice of calming and peaceful pandemic relief for almost 2 Million followers on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. His friendly demeanor and the way he holds the camera close and looks directly into the lens offers an easiness that has inspired thousands of followers to reach out to Fritz personally and help them through trying times. Much like Mr. Rogers or Bob Ross he unleashes an appreciation for the simple things in life like enjoying the sounds of a babbling creek or sharing a nature discovery with a buddy.
