I know, they’re “just pets”. But to us animal lovers, dogs really are friends. Companions, entertainment, exercise partners, 100_1832_0136emily.jpgjoy-bringers, everyday… Yesterday was a sad day in our lives, as Emily, friends’ golden retreiver, died. Emily was Abby’s first canine friend in Madison, (in the photo, Emily’s on the right) and they were so incredibly adorable together. Emily was honestly the sweetest dog I have ever met. She would have been 14 next week, but was getting worse and worse.. not eating, drinking, etc. We went to say goodbye to her yesterday morning, and when we came home and saw our dogs I burst out crying. When I went to bed last night, I had tears in my eyes, as I thought about how lonely our friends’ house must have felt on the day their dog died. And I gave thanks for our dogs (dog and “foster dog”), and for Emily.

May you have endless amounts of tennis balls to chew in heaven, Emily! (yes, I believe dogs go to heaven.) We miss you.
