Emma: One Year Later
Emma came to live with us a year ago today. I cannot believe how quickly the year has passed and am astonished at how much she has changed in the past 12 months. First of all, she is FINALLY housebroken . . . it took about 7 LONG months. She did have a small relapse after the baby was born but she seems to be doing fine now. She has also calmed down a LOT. She used to be crazy-hyper and full of energy. She is still full of energy but she is much better at listening and is very gentle now. She is such a good little dog; during our block party, she was out in the alley with us for about 7 hours and never once wandered off and instead chased the kids up/down the alley on their bikes or napped underfoot when tired. People were commenting on how well-behaved she was. She is a dog who loves her peeps. She's also the kind of dog every kid wants: one who lays with you when you're sick; who chases you down the slide at the park; one who climbs into your treehouse with you; or jumps on the trampoline with you. We are so lucky to have such a great little dog.
