Luap, really sorry for you. 5 years is not enough. When this sweet puppy arrives, we know that we'll have to say goodbye too soon and most probably have to decide exactly when. But every time it is hard. I had to make that decision for my 11 year old rottie, Dina this summer. I still dream about her most nights.

Emma wasn't your whole life. But you were her's.

My dogs will join me in NC in February. When my wife brings the rest of the house up.

I hope I jinxed Emmas illness for a little while by writing about her.  Monday night was gloomy for her.  I called all my kids to tell them they'd better come say bye to her as I feared I'd have to put her down on Tuesday.  I kid you not, not 30 minutes into the kids coming home to visit her at 9:30PM, she began to take a turn...for the BEST. She started perking back up, eating, drinking, running, playing and acting like nothing in the world was wrong. I know she's still sick, but she doesn't and is acting like a puppy again.  As long as no one tells her, she just might make it to her 5th birthday in May.  I figured you'd all want to know.  We are happy campers right now.

It seems more visits from the kids are required medicine.

Update on Emma. This morning at 11:50, Emma passed away. I saw her laying in the yard so I ran to her. Hunter came out as well and helped me wrap her in my robe to keep warm. We talked with her for thirty minutes while we waited for dad to get home. She howled back when we said I love you and daddy's coming. She held on for him and passed soon after he arrived. Emma was such a wonderful Girl who showed during her last breath that she will wait forever for her family. We will cherish every memory and miss her always. Rest in peace, sweet Emma Louise.

So sorry for your loss.


The Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Luap, so sorry to hear about Emma's passing. It's the first I've mentioned it, but I put my dog of over 13 yrs old down this past September and though she was sick, it still was tough. They are amazing creatures that don't live nearly long enough. I'm sorry Emma went so soon is all. Like my dog Deuce, Emma will always be engraved in your memory.
Best wishes
