Emma


So today would have been Emma's 16th birthday. It's been two and a half years, and I still miss her just as much as I always have. A lot of people may think it's strange that some people mourn over their pets for so long, but for me it's totally understandable. I grew up with Emma. We brought her home the summer before kindergarten, and she was part of my life until my freshman year of college. And I'm an only child, so in many ways Emma was much more of a sister to me than a dog. For the most part I handle her not being here pretty well, but days like today are a little bit more difficult.
