Home We Love Emmet through the years: A tribute from Annie to her beloved dog.

Emmet through the years: A tribute from Annie to her beloved dog.

Our bestest, beloved boy Emmet has embarked on his journey to heaven last Saturday surrounded by those who loved him most in the world.

Emmet was a funny, loving, charming, mischievous and REALLY handsome dog who was a Dash and Albert spokesdog practically from his birth on September 4th, 2007. He was named Emmet because he was born on my stepfather Winthrop Emmet’s birthday.

He loved to go out every morning, sun or snow, to sniff what the day had to offer. After the initial sniff, he would lean into a full body roll and back wriggle – this made me happy every time I caught it. I would stop whatever I was doing to watch him relish the day…

He cherished his daily walks with Sarah and her happy yellow lab Ellie. They were a happy family unit all their own.

He loved just about every food (and object) with the exception of citrus fruit. Go figure?

He loved to get the squeaker out of a toy. While we never entered him into a competition, I believe he could have potentially held a speed record in this particular event.

He loved and made daily visits to the vegetable garden. In fact, he was often the one to alert us when the zucchini and tomatoes were ripe enough to pick!

He enjoyed a game of cornhole.

He loved to swim.

He loved a mud puddle.

And, he loved us unconditionally and was a wonderful companion in good times and bad.

He is much missed.

Beautiful. Our connection with dogs is profound and if we open our hearts, it is a love like no other and a loss like no other either. As someone who has suffered the loss of a beloved dog, I am so sad for you right now and at the same time, so happy for Emmett that he had such a wonderful life with you and your family! Thanks so very much for sharing this with us.

So sorry for your loss. I’ve long enjoyed seeing photos of Emmet and your other dogs, and it’s obvious he lived a wonderful life.

Your sweet dog has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. All good dogs get to go and are taken care of by Children and angels and God. They have an amazing time, sleeping on clouds and playing and getting into all kinds of mischief. I am a dog lover and lost my most recent golden retriever back in January after an extended bout of pancreatitis. I know my “Izzy” is having fun up there but is always looking for me. I am sitting with my 18 year old cat and looking for a bedspread/comforter on your website. Just wanted to reach out and hopefully give you peace.

Dear Annie,
You sounded like a devoted dog mother.
Dogs are just the best of all therapies, they encourage us to go outdoors and they truly make our house a home.
I hope you feel better soon, such a tremendous void losing a pet.

I feel like I really knew this beautiful creature, just from seeing him in the lovely photos on your website. May good memories live on for all of us who have parted with wonderful four legged family members. Their contribution to our happiness cannot be measured.
