Emma's First Year

Happy Adoption Day, Emma! 
One year ago, we drove down to Connecticut and picked up Emma to bring her to her new home. At the time, we couldn't believe we were finally getting our very own dog; now, it's hard to imagine what life was like without her.
 "Get off my couch, Mom"
Now we have a hiking buddy to help pull us up mountains, a watchdog who lets us know when the mail comes, a TV-watching cuddle buddy who wishes she could play with the mountain lions she sees on Animal Planet, and the best "Welcome Home" greeter we could ever ask for. What is the only thing better than that?

As Gilda Radner said: "I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive."

So go love someone unconditionally like a dog can. It's a great way to live. Only dogs could get in trouble one minute and want to cover you with kisses the next, maybe they're on to something.
