Emilia came to us by fate when I made a trip down to get Huckleberry at MCACC. As I was waiting for them to get Huck ready for the trip, I wandered over to look at the computer to see what dogs were there. I always search by the oldest dog first. There she was! I went out quickly just to take a glance into the kennel. She was 15, skinny, weak, panting and standing outside in 118° that August day. I didn't think twice, I went back inside and said "throw her in too". I slept on the garage floor for 6 nights with Emmy and Huckleberry keeping them on IV meds around the clock. Emmy chose the cabin above the garage as her private princess suite so we abide by her decision and installed heat and A/C for her as well as a couple dog doors. She would wander across her private bridge a few times a day to check out the happenings in the house. Then should retire back to peace and quiet. She survived pneumonia three times and my vets were convinced she had some coyote in her. She developed quite the personality after a few months. She would run through the yard flicking her tail around. That's how I always knew how she was feeling. She got so excited for her food, she would sometimes chatter. We called her Lady Chatterly. She recently started limping and then it got worse. We found out that she had bone cancer, which is incredibly painful. Emmy never wanted to be held (the wild child side). She tolerated our love with pets on the head and around the neck. When I brought her home, I carried her from the car out to the forest to lay her next to Huckleberry. It's the first time I was able to hold her close. Rest peacefully sweet little lady! We love you and miss you!
