Lost a good friend this weekend

I had planned some great posts for yesterday and today, but I couldn't bring myself to write them. One of our good friends lost their dog suddenly this weekend. It was very hard. No one really knows what happened. She was doing well that morning, then her body began to shut down. She died on Saturday November 28, 2009 at 11:40 pm.



She was his Chosen One. She was a favourite with the neighbourhood kids and a wonderful dog. She has shared her home with many different foster dogs throughout her short 5 years and welcomed each one in with her doggie-waggle. The picture to the left is her at one of the dog Christmas parties in a picture perfect sit/stay.



We will miss you, Emma.

It takes a special dog to share their home with fosters like that! I'm sorry she's passed on to the Rainbow Bridge so early. :(
