Arrival Story: I got Emmy from our local pound after many years of not having a dog. She was 3 months old. I was the first person to put my name on her. I was at the pound the day she came in. There were eventually 12 more names after mine. So many people wanted this dog. She was found with a collar on, so I had to wait 12 days instead of the usual 7. Those were the longest 12 days ever. She was a skinny little pup that had been on the run for a while.
I brought her home and fattened her up a bit. She wasn't skinny anymore. She was well loved.
I'm not sure why she ran from me the day she died. I was trying to train her off-leash and she ran. She got hit by a semi truck.
I found her in a neighborhood park after a boy called the number on her collar.
I had her cremated and she is still with me. I keep her urn on my shelf. It is said that their leave once you bury them. Well, I cannot find it in my heart to part with her. I want her always with me, so I will maybe have her ashes buried with me. She is my Angel. I miss her dearly.
The day I lost her was the worst day of my life. I looked for her, called her, but she was gone.
She usually ran to the duck pond, but this day, she ran the other way. Emmy, I grieve for you my Angel.
Bio: Emmy weighed in at 46 pounds. She was fawn and white. A gorgeous dog.
Three years now and I still miss you my sweet angel. I will never get over your passing. I love you even more. Each year it's been since your passing, I miss you more. I would love to feel your wet nose in my hand again. The one thing I never really liked when you were on this earth is dear to me now. Please know I love you and miss you. I long to stroke your fur while you lay in my lap. You always laid so still as if that was the most important place to be. I love you Emmy.

I still miss my Emmy after 2 years. The memory of losing her is still so vivid in my mind. I cannot bear to part with her and I still keep her ashes on a cabinet. I know I should let her go, but how can I? I miss her so much. If I let her go, will I forget her?
Emmy, I love you and I miss you so much, my Angel.
