Emma Lou

by Deb
(Northern Indiana)

We breed Boston Terriers and after a puppy is born we check for a soft spot on the top of their head. We found Emmas and it was to have healed by her 6 week check up. It did not heal in that amount of time so i knew i could not sell her and the vet was not sure if she would have neurological issues .

So, she became my sidekick. We did everything together, she would even come in the bathroom while i showered and when i was drying off she would lick the water off my legs to help me dry off. She would go everywhere with me and was a huge snuggle bug at night.

One day she wanted come with me to a doc appointment. I did not think anything of it, so i let her come, on the way to the doc office i missed my turn so i took a different way. For whatever reason, i did not see a car stopped in the middle of the road. He had no turn signal.

By the time i saw him, i slammed on my breaks and swerved to miss the car. I hit this drivers back bumper. When i came to a stop i looked for Emma. I found her laying between the two front seats. Just laying there with some blood coming out of her mouth. I checked to see if she was still alive and she was, so i picked her up and kept telling her to hold on, that we would get her help as quick as we could. About two minutes later she was gone. She did not make it. I held her the whole time i was at the scene of the accident. We took her to a vet and they made impressions of her two from paw prints. We had a little more time with her, and then had to give her to the tech and leave since i had to go to the ER.

I really miss my companion. She was just like a kid to me and i deeply miss her. I have a new dog and she is great. I am sure our bond will eventually be as close as i was with Emma, but right now i grieve the loss of a best friend. She was very small but a sweetheart. I will always love you Emma...
