I feel so sorry for Emma tonight

Howllo Fellow Hound and Emmers Lovers:

Having a blind hound is so sad. I do not let Emma know I feel this way. However, I see how she struggles. Prior to to going blind she would bound down the hall way to check on the barking dogs in the neighborhood. Now she bumps down and seems frustrated. She is really aging as well. Today it seemed liked she had a headache. Her third eyelid was up on her prosthetic eye.

It is a struggle for humans and hounds alike when we face a disability. We wish the best for our children and when they struggle we struggle.

Emma is very young and was so active. Now she is in the dark. Believe me, I know that she is lucky to be with me.

I feel she wants me to tell her story. I see her trying to look at me…..

More of Emma’s story later…Cat, Chaps and beautiful Emma

    So do we Cat. Our hearts and prayers and love go out to sweet Emmers everyday. She is so beautiful and such a special girl. Good things lie ahead for her and as always a lot of special love from a very special Mom.
