I realized today as I answered a discussion I have not updated you on what has happened here at the farm.  Two weeks ago we said goodbye to my sweet love, Emma Anne.  She turned 10 in March and was fighting thru DM.  About May she was only able to "seal walk" around the house and used her wheel-cart outside.  At first she would zip along to the barn, then she took to just barking from the front door of the house and slowly would make herself to the barn, stopping many times to lay and rest in the cart.  Next she was losing bladder control and was getting very depressed.  Ears hanging to the side, sparkle gone from her bright eyes.  She was not a happy camper.  We tried to keep diapers on her in the house but they would come off if she slid on the carpet.  Got to where she would just lay and wait for dinner.


Watching her go thru this was so hard.  When she got to where her front legs were getting weaker I knew it was time.  My wonderful vet came to the house and I sat in the recliner holding Emma as we sent her off to the Rainbow Bridge.  She is buried under the big Oak on the farm with 2 of my other loved dogs.  I know she is running and playing happily at the bridge and I will see her again.


Some of you may remember but on Mothers Day I rescued 2 Pembrokes, Jack and Katie.  Kate has healed well and they are much loved part of our family now.  I know God had his hand in this rescue as He knew Emma was not well and I would need a corgi to help me grieve. 


RIP my sweetie pie, I will love you forever Emma Anne!

I am so sorry for your loss if Emma...She is running and smiling having fun with all our Rainbow Bridge furkids. She will be there when you arrive with lots of sloppy kisses.

Nancy, Bobbie Mayer with Corgiaide told me something that made sense.  At the time when I had to make that awful decision, she told me that I showed my Chloe how much I loved her by taking her pain away and making it mine.  Later after my grief settled I thought about that one sentence and realized that I did what was best even though it hurt so bad, then I realized how much she must have been hurting and at that moment I knew that I did the right thing.  So very, very sorry for your loss.  She is now running on all 4 legs at Rainbow Bridge.

I am so sorry you lost Emma Anne.  It sounds like you loved her a lot and gave her a great life.  Then you had to make the hardest decision of all.  Bless you for taking such good care of her!

Deepest sympathies.

You faced the hardest test we animal lovers have.  You had to put your feelings of wanting to keep her with you aside and do what was truely best for her. I am so sorry for your loss.
