Emma was my daughter's weimaraner. Emma was her heart and soul and probably taught my daughter more about love and life and laughter than anyone else.
I will never forget the day I received the call, Emma was only a few months shy of 14. Mom, Emma has lymphoma.
We talked for a long time on the phone and ultimately decided that comfort care was the best course of action. Emma was losing the use of her hind end and even if we could stall the run-away train the cancer was riding, nothing was going to help her hind end.
Emma loved the beach and we planned two photo sessions for her. We immediately took her to the beach so that she could enjoy the sand and the sun one more time.
And then, as we got closer to saying good-bye we made arrangements for the vet to come to our house.
We have an apple tree that delivered delightful apples every fall for Emma to enjoy. It felt so fitting for Emma to leave us under the apple tree.
Here is the link to her story.
