That's our sweet little Emmi! She sure brings all of us so much joy and laughter! She's eight years old, (her birthday is December 5th). She loves to chase critters, a born hunter for sure!! She loves to play, and even though she has a basket full of toys, she has her few special favorites that she most often picks to play with. When she digs through her basket, (which is absolutely the cutest thing to watch her do!!), and picks a toy to play with, she'll sit beside it, very quietly, hoping someone will notice that she wants to play fetch. She likes to chase golf balls, when daddy throws them for her in the back yard. She runs, ears flopping in the breeze, so adorable! She LOVES to bark at animals on the TV, which is always fun for those of us trying to watch TV! lol! When she sees that one of her humans is getting ready to go somewhere without her, she sure knows how to look at us to make us feel guilty... That look, melts your heart!! When we come home, or even wake up in the morning, Emmi is soooo excited to see us, she wiggles so much, she can hardly contain herself! It's as though she hasn't seen us in a very long time, even if it's only been a half hour!!! I work from home, and she's my little shadow all day long, following me where ever I go! She hates wet grass, dislikes the snow, but she loves to taunt her sister dog Izzie! She can definitely get grouchy at times, when she thinks Izzie is being especially bothersome. She'll growl at her, and then she'll lunge at Izzie's neck to let her know who's boss! They have a love/hate relationship, that's for sure! Izzie watches out for Emmi, and Emmi keeps her eye on Izzie. Emmi loves her humans, and we are so lucky to be loved by her!! Although she loves to 'hunt for critters' and lunge at Izzie, she has the most gentle and sweet heart!
Sadly, Emmy was diagnosed with a heart murmur last year, and it has recently gotten worse. She's on three different kinds of medications now, and the good news is that she's doing great on the meds. So thankful for our veterinarian, and for the medications that are helping her to live a longer life!!!! We have to take her in for check-ups more frequently now... I think, that she thinks, that every time she gets to go for a ride in the car, she'll be going to the vet! But she likes everyone there, and they love her.
Anyway, there are horses behind the vet hospital, and last time we were there, the horses were out. We took Emmi over to see them, she was so excited to visit them.
One of the baby horses was especially curious and friendly, came right over to check us out...
Emmi and the baby horse made fast friends! I thought this was such a cute picture, and wanted to share it with you, and to share a little about our sweet Emmi.
Here's to all of the fur babies out there, that bring all of their humans so much joy!!!!
