Emma 1

Yesterday we said goodbye to Emma. Her condition had worsened overnight to the point where we were forced to make a very difficult decision. She passed peacefully in the arms of her people, surrounded by her favorite toys from home. It was the best we could do for her.

She was our little diva and we were so lucky to have her in our lives. Mike, Caleb and I, along with our pups Daphne and Mishka, will sorely miss her. Thanks, everyone. Your kind thoughts and support have given us solace during this rough weekend. Our deepest thanks to the doctors and staff at the Foster Hospital for Small Animals at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine for their caring compassion.
