This is the story of Emma

Emma as a puppy

Emma is one of a litter of six puppies who were surrendered to BCHS from another shelter to avoid being euthanized. She was adopted when she was about three months old but returned to BCHS less than two years later because the owners moved and could not take Emma with them. Emma spent time in a foster home and was fearful when placed in new environments and situations. And then the right family came along. The new adopters, Mike & Cindy Lotz, came to the 5 th Annual Paws-In-The-Park event. They had previously adopted Emma’s sister, Abby, at about the same time Emma was adopted the first time. They saw Emma and decided to add her to their family of three other dogs.

December 2008 - a letter received from the family who adopted Emma:

Dennis and Rachel,

We received your phone message last Friday.  Thanks for taking the time to tell us that you enjoyed the Christmas card and photo.  It means a lot to us to knowing that there are people like you that appreciate things like that.

Emma is really settling in as a member of our family.  She and Piper are getting along better now.  She really looks forward to her walks every day and absolutely LOVES frisbee.  After that, she is just content laying around the house. (Especially near Mommy so she can get rubbed!)

You will never believe what Mike is building.  It's a 4 Doggie Kennel/Entertainment Center out of solid oak.  The base will be 4 kennels with the TV and shelving etc up above.  I will have to send you a pic when it is complete.   It's our very own design!!

You guys have a Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2009.

Mike, Cindy, Piper, Abby, Tanner, and Emma
