Emma had a great time at her cone crushing party!

Howllo Fellow Hound and Cone Haters! My sister had a party tonight at my home for Emma so her son Julian, could crush her cone. We had a blast. Man O Man I needed this. It was so much fun. We had some great wine and Indian food which is my total weakness. Emma went crazy! She was so excited to see them. She let out howls that I had never heard before. Thank God for family. I don’t think Emma’s spirits could have been lifted any higher!

Here is Julian crushing her e-collar! In this picture you can see Emma’s prosthetic eye. My Mom swears she can see through it! Emma is super hound doggie!

We are making the most of it! Slurp!

More Later…Cat, Chap and Emma

    We had so much fun last night crushing the cone and eating too much.. I cannot believe how great Emma is doing with her lack of sight. She gets around so well for it having just happened. Even when we had to move a piece of furniture for Julians magic show, she figured out how to get around it. I am so very proud of her!! XOXO

    So glad to hear that Emma is now (cloneless)!! Yikes
    those 10 days are like no other!! Charlie got his clone off on Wed….and is he ever the happiest big old boy!!! Me too as I have bruises all up the back of my legs from Charlie walking into me!! Sadie and Otis were there with tails wagging and wet kisses!!
    Emma is an inspiration to all our hounds that have this terrible disease or are fighting it!! I know her big brother Chap will lead her down a safe path and guide her with every paw print!! You are in my thoughts daily….I love you all!!!

    BJ! hey girl! We are going through this together! I am so glad to hear that our Charlie is coneless. These things are torture chambers for our beloved hounds. Send us a picture of Charlie and Emma can feature him in her new category about going through life blind. We love you guys also and know what you are going through. Charlie and Emma have many lessons to teach us all. Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Sounds like a wonderful time that was needed by all. Emma is going to teach us all many things. What a precious girl she is. Cat, I have thought of you every day knowing how hard this must be. I see a drip coming out of Gus or Bonnies nose and I go into a panic. I am so glad to hear that Emma is doing so well. Rest easy my friend.

    Cat , I’m glad that Emma is better and that you can get on with life. I think it’s just great to have
    family fun like that and turn a negative thing into a positive one. You go girl, I wish I was there to try some of that Indian food. I hear some of it is hot and I like hot. Give Emma and Chaps a Bug Hug and Kiss for me. Love Ken

    Cat, so glad to hear Emma is doing better. Give Emma a big hug and loving belly rubs.
    Our hounds Henri and Riley send lots of healing drool and slurps to Emma.
    God Bless,
