|Emma before she found her forever home.|
On a very special #TooCuteTuesday a good while ago, a rescue group named Wag N Train Terrier Rescue posted this darling picture of sweet Emma on the Scottie Mom Facebook page asking us to help find her a forever home. Within a few hours of us posting her picture, I heard from Emma's future Scottie Mom saying this sweet girl was getting the forever home of her dreams!
Up until that point, Emma led a very difficult life. A puppy mill Scottie, Emma didn't know what it was like to be loved and treated right by the people she encountered. And so, she was very shy and kept to herself. In fact, it wasn't until recently that she began feeling safe and comfortable enough to enjoy the simple pleasures in a Scottie's life like sitting on the couch and celebrating barkdays.
Just six weeks ago, I heard from Emma's Scottie Mom letting me know their other Scottie Baxter, who proudly served as Emma's adoptive Scottie brother, passed away suddenly from cancer - or as we call it, the evil "c." He was sick for only a few days. Our hearts sank. Then, I learned yesterday that tragedy had once again struck her Scottie House. Sweet Emma also has been diagnosed with the evil "c" and is expected to meet her brother Baxter over the rainbow bridge any day now.
Emma's story breaks our hearts and I can only imagine the pain her family is experiencing right now. Please join us in expressing our unconditional Scottie Love and support for Emma and her family in the comments section below. So many of our Scots are gone too soon because of the evil "C." Think about it: how many dogs have you known that have battled canine cancer? And so many animals - Scots and mixed breeds alike - have stories similar to that of Emma's past. Thanks to her Scottie Mom and family, Emma found love and is living out the rest of her days with her humans by her side.
