She was the quintessential easy-going Golden Retriever.

The complete opposite of my two ‘old church lady’ named labradors who dig, counter steal, and more. As much a part of their charm as Emma’s was to be chill and mellow.

So I would urge sweet Emma not to move. To rest instead of rising each time she saw his car. But it never worked. That undying loyalty and love would force her weakened body to movement every single time.

The one we met alongside our first baby. The one who ran through yards and woods protecting our boys. The one who waited for him eagerly each and every night.

The girl who loved him.
