Miss Emilee was a Miniature Schnauzer who we put to sleep a year
ago yesterday, August 2, 2012. We knew it was time. She was a
princess of a girl, not quite wanting to associate with other
dogs but remaining polite nonetheless. She traveled with us
everywhere in our motorhome; never having been left to anyone else for care because we knew she would be heartbroken being left behind.
She developed Pancreatitis when she was seven and Diabetes when she was eight. She had to have two shots per day and be on a strict diet. She didn't like the shots but she knew they were to help her and she always received a little bite of kibble after her shot. She
was hospitalized a lot the last two years and even though she was
only ten, we knew the time had come to relieve her of her pain.
Our pain was just beginning. We had her cremated and she is still
a part of our household with her pictures in every room. We look
forward to the Rainbow Bridge to meet Emilee again as well as other
pets that were in our household. So far, we have not been able to
replace Emilee. No dog will measure up yet, but some day we'll
add a new addition to our family. Wonderful memories of Miss Em

It's obvious you did your very best with Emilee, loved her dearly and appreciated the time you shared together. I know it's impossible to replace any family member but I hope when you're ready you'll find a wonderful dog to love that is nothing at all like your sweet Em, but wonderful in his or her own way.
