Day 13 of 31 : Earliest Memory
My first earliest memory was when my family and I went to the shelter to adopt a puppy.
My sister and I begged our parents for months for a dog. When they finally said yes and we all went to the shelter. As we walked through the door, there was a dog bouncing around in his cage that immediately caught our attention. His Corgi shaped ears and Bassett Hound body were just the start of the list of all the things we love about him. That was the day we adopted Emmett and took him home.
Emmett brought so much joy into our lives that day and continued to make us smile for all the years after that. He was there for so many significant moments in our lives, but of course I wish he could be here for many more. Emmett was the perfect dog for us. He was my favorite part of home, but all the memories we have will remind us of the amazing dog that came into our lives back in 2001. He passed away about nine months ago and we all miss him very much. Walking into my house isn’t the same when he isn’t the first thing I see.
