Our sweet, sweet Emmy became a part of our family on November 26, 2012. We had been looking at the Humane Society website at dogs (just for fun) and that's when we saw the cutest dog face ever. We hadn't really talked about getting a dog anytime soon, but in our hearts we knew that Emmy was the one for us.
The day after finding her on the Humane Society website, we called the Humane Society just to make sure that she was still available and to find out some more information about her. Turns out that Emmy was transferred here from a shelter in Oklahoma about a month prior to my phone call. She had also recently had a litter, but they had not been transferred with her. When we asked about her personality and disposition, the guy told me she was sweet and very calm. That was all we needed to hear! The rest of the day just couldn't go by fast enough!
That night when we went to meet Emmy, we walked right past her. The website listed her as mastiff mix, so we thought that she would be much bigger than she was. The picture on the website also showed a caramel colored dog, but Emmy is brindle. But the main reason that we walked by her is because in the picture she has these beautiful and curious brown eyes. At the Humane Society, however, she had these big, sad, droopy, red eyes - the kind that just break your heart!
After realizing that this sad dog was in fact Emmy, we crouched down by the gate and called to her. She hesitated, but eventually came over. (It was like she was thinking, "Alright, I will come over and let you pet me. But you are just going to leave me here and go home with another dog just like everyone else.") After talking to her and petting her a while, we asked a volunteer if we could spend some time with her. We were then taken to a play room that was just for Emmy and us. Emmy was a bit timid, but very sweet. She seemed interested, but a little withdrawn. After a while she was more interactive & we were able to put our face by hers for kisses and rub her tummy.
We were in love!
So, we took sweet Emmy home and have had nothing but love, cuddles, and laughs ever since. She sure does know how to make anyone smile!
