Emma is fourteen today!
She is surprising us all how she is hanging in there . . .
. . . for another spring on the mountain . . .
. . . for another May birthday . . .
. . . perhaps a few more months yet, to move into the new house with us . . .
. . . she has lived beyond her breed’s life expectancy, and our old girl is a real trooper!
The three of us have lived in our
shoebox tiny house for exactly a year now, although Emma has quite taken to wanting to be in ‘her car’ a lot of the time. She being around has made it so much easier for us to get through this time. I must accredit Emma’s incredible longevity to her extreme athletic youth, running all over the mountain chasing critters, in part to the wonderful veterinarians at Napa Small Animal , as well as the two raw eggs she gets every day, a very good recipe for a healthy happy old dog. Emma, we love you, and what a happy day it is indeed!
