Our hearts are broken. We lost our sweet little Emily last week, very unexpectedly. Emily shared our lives for nearly 10 years. She was never "just a dog", she was our constant companion, our best friend, a huge and important part of our family. We took her everywhere. I never had kids, so Emily was like our child. There are no words to say how devastated we are at her passing. That it happened so quickly, and over 1,000 miles away from home, in what should have been a fun trip, made it all the more difficult.
We just returned to our home here in Michigan, after being gone for 6 weeks. Our house is empty, we are numb.
