It's taken me a few months now to be able to write this. My dear sweet Emmy has gone to live with the Angels now. Her S.A.R.D.S. finally got the best of her, and I had to have her put to sleep. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make.
She was my best friend ever. We went through losing my husband, and she got me through that, having breast cancer, living in some hard times, and many more things. But she was always there for me, and she saved my life more than once. You were always the one who got me through the rough, and bad times. Now that you are not here, I'm having a hard time getting through this because you were my strengh.
A part of my heart died the day she did. I will miss her till the day that I die. I hope she knows how special she was to me, and what joy she brought in my life.
I will never forget her, and never stop missing her. I wish everyone could have a dog like Emmy. There is no love greater.
Thank you Emmy for all that you were to me. I'll always love you.

My mom hasn't left the house much since I lost my sight, so since I've been doing pretty well lately, she decided to go out for a few hours today with my human sister. Mom lined us up with our babysetter to make sure we had our potty time taken care of. Well, the babysetter didn't know I never go out alone. Mom always is a few steps in front or behind me to make sure I make it out to the grass. Well, the door was open, do I go out or wait for my mom? Molly went first, and took off without me. I figured I might as well go on out too. The babysetter shut the door, and went to fix our supper for us, so I wanted to hurry and not miss out on the food. I don't know what happen from there. Somehow I got turned around, and couldn't find the grass. The next thing I knew I was swimming in the fish pond. The ice on top of it wasn't thick enough to hold me, so I was stuck at the end, trying to figure out how to get out, and what in the world was happening to me. I was so afraid, and so cold I couldn't bark I guess, but Molly heard me and came to my rescue. She started barking her head off, and wouldn't quit. The babysetter came to see what the barking was all about and saw Molly jumping up and down and barking at the pond. The next thing I knew, someone grabbed me and finally pulled me out of that water. The babysetter covered me up with towels, and was as scared as I was. Then I heard the babysetter call my mom on the phone and say she had to come home that I needed her. My mom was home in minutes, and grabbed me up and wouldn't let go of me. She kept saying, "Thank God". As soon as she seen I was ok, she grabbed Molly and kissed her a bunch of times. I heard her tell Molly what I already knew, Molly was a Hero today. She saved my life. Thanks to Molly, we got extra treats, and a lot of extra lovin's all evening.
But there is more to the story, and it's spooky. Mom fixed the pond so I couldn't get into it, and we can't figure out how I got in there. And....the babysetter said he was so scared, he couldn't really remember getting me out. He said all he could remember was holding me with towels wrapped around me. Not one brick was out of place, nor one pebble moved. If a person was going to get a dog out of that pond, something would had to have been moved, or out of place, and nothing was. Was someone else one step behind me where my mom usually was, watching out for me? Whose big hands was that, that lifted me out of that pond without moving a thing, and was Molly barking at me, or was it.....................

I have had the best day today. My dear sweet ol'e mom has been trying so hard to help me with my loss of sight. I just wasn't getting it, and was having such a hard time trying to get through the day. But my mom has been in contact with a sight on the computer, blinddogs.com, and they told her to chill out. Well, she finally did, and I'm doing so much better. She is finally letting me learn on my own, and now I get it. I haven't bumped my head or nose on anything all day. Me and Molly even ran through the house today after our bath. I wasn't as fast as Molly, but I found some really neat places to wipe my wet face on. I went outside today without getting lost in the flower beds or under that darn picnic table. What a great day I've had. I can't wait for tomorrow!
