Emma the Terrier mix, the Dog of the Day
Name: Emma
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Female Breed: Terrier mix
Home: Kelseyville, California, USA
   Meet Emma, a 13-year-old rescue that has been part of our family since she was eight weeks old. We live in Kelseyville, California and think she's been the sweetest and "hairiest" dog we've ever owned. My husband and I thought we were adopting a small sized dog but, although her mother was a terrier mix, her father must have been a much larger dog. The size didn't matter from the moment she was put in our arms.

     Emma gave us so many laughs as she was growing up. She had lots of toys but her favorite was always any small rock she could find in the garden. When coming into the house from outside, we always had to check her mouth to pull out a rock she'd hoped she could sneak in with her. Most of you know that "sad eye look" we got when we put the rock back outside.

     Now that she's older, she loves to sleep in my husband's office on a futon while he's busy on the computer. Our other two dogs can sometimes get her to play with them but her preference is to just bark as they play.

     As for us having to vacuum our floors 365 days a year because of her shedding, that's okay. We love her very much and think she's worth the effort. We just wish we could make her younger again.

     Please, rescue a dog and know what true love means.
