Four years ago this week, Emmett burst into our lives. It was a match made in heaven – from the moment we saw him at the rescue, we knew he was ours – and we were his! In the car on the way home that day, Emmett rested his head on the armrest between our seats and fell right to sleep, like he was happy and comfortable and just knew he was going home!
That first year was filled with so many funny, memorable, touching experiences. We made a lot of mistakes as first-time doggy parents, but Emmett was so happy and eager from day 1. He made friends with everyone in our building and instantly endeared himself to our friends and family. When we adopted Lucas – fearful, timid, aggressive Lucas – Emmett took him under his wing (paw?) and helped us help Lucas. Emmett is a world-class snuggler. He’s silly, playful, and loves people more than anything. Except food. Which he really does love more than anything.
It’s hard to believe four years have already gone by. It feels like he’s been a part of our lives forever, and he really has changed our lives forever. We are so lucky and so incredibly grateful that Emmett came into our lives four years ago.
We love you, Emmett!
