Thinking of Emmitt

"Emmitt"

I wanted to write a tribute today to Emmitt, a most precious pug who passed over to the Rainbow Bridge last weekend. His people, Melissa and Fred were the most wonderful pug parents and I know they are missing him terribly.

I had the pleasure of knowing Emmitt and of being the recipient of many of his puggie kisses, hugs and howls of happiness when I visited. He was pure joy wrapped in a little pug package. We all will miss him dearly.

Thank you, Emmitt...for bringing so much sweetness to the world. We love you, little man!

"When a dog first arrives in Heaven
he just runs.

Dog Heaven has clear, wide lakes
filled with geese who honk and flap
and tease. The dogs love this.

They run beside the water and bark
and bark and God watches them
from behind a tree and smiles."

That was so sweet, Linda. Unfortunately, I didn't get to meet Emmitt but certainly grew to love him through Melissa's blog. Your picture of him is wonderful!
Kisses to you & Maise! xoxo Diane

Little Emmitt was the sweetest guy. I will miss reading about him on Melissa's blog.
