Love and attention! He likes to be near me and goes wherever I go when allowed.

ANYthing that squeeks!

Well... he's given Annamaet, but he'd no doubt prefer chicken and burgers!

He stays in the yard mostly but he looks forward to the Annual Mutt March!

Best Tricks:
Emit can 'Set Pretty' -- usually a little dog trick. He won Stupid Pet Trick at the first annual Mutt March!

Arrival Story:
Emit died 5/15/05 at home of old age. I think he was happy... just worn out=( ------------------ In 1993 I was engaged and he was an AirForce cop. I was living in Anchorage, AK at the time and he was still in Germany (our previus base). He saw an add for a lab/rot mix and HAD to have it. I went and looked at the dog... I KNEW there was NO lab in this dog. The family bred Chihuahua's and had a female Rot also - the family guard. I guess the Rot got knocked up by a neighbor dog... some sort of wolfhound mix. He was rather ugly, HUGE head and feet, and dumber than a box of rocks, Apparently the runt and the only puppy left without a home. Long story short, I took him anyway... I knew he was going to be a big dog..... I knew he wouldn't fit in my car much longer either, so I bought him a truck! No longer ugly once he grew into his head and feet. Instead a very unique brindle pattern. I named him Emit after Emmett Kelly, because he was such a doofy clown; but for those not old enough to remember Emmett Kelly, the Hobo Clown.... I tell them he's names after Emmett Smith! He was 6 mos old when we met, and he's been with me for TWELVE years!!!! His Health is deteriorating (fast) and my only plea is that he can og in his sleep, at home, with no additional trauma or illness. This guy is my best friend in the world. I can't stand to see him suffer even a little.

Bio:
He's turned out to be much smarter than he let's on, he's truly a gentle giant. He's been my #1 guy for a long time. Emit developed seperation anxiety a few years ago after I had been homebound with an illness. He can no longer be left alone at home. I don't mind having to go out of my way to take care of his special needs. It's kind of a pain, but he's worth it. He's been the best dog I've ever had, and the best friend I could have ever asked for. I truly don't know what I'm going to do without him.
