This is Emma, a four month old (we think) Golden Retriever rescue that I will be adopting on Monday, June 23, 2008. I plan to post our adventures (both good and bad) over the coming years as we get to know one another.

Emma will be my fourth Golden Retriever so I am not a stranger to the breed. She is going to get all of the love and attention she will ever need for a long and happy life.

Tomorrow is the big day. I picked up a crate, liner, and puppy food on the way home from work. I still need to pick up some good chew toys (preferably the type you can freeze) to help her with her teething. I can't wait until she is actually here and a part of our family.

Emma means "One who heals the universe" and in my case I had lost my best friend Megan (Golden Retriever) on May 10, 2008 due to cancer. Hopefully Megan was the one who sent me the path to Emma to heal my longing for my lost companion.

Jordan, our other 10 1/2 year old Golden will be her mentor. Hopefully they will hit it off like old friends. Only time will tell. I know that she is going to be a bundle of energy and wanting to get into everything. We will need lots of patience as we enter into this adventure.

Wish us luck!

I know how much you already love this dog, the name is kinda neat and you found this out after you picked it out!

I know we will be a happy family!
Smiles, Cyndi ~ wife to Bob and maybe Emma will give us more grandogs!

She is sooooooooo beautiful. After all you and Cyndi have been through with your beloved dogs this year, I am delighted to see you all so happy and Emma could not have been blessed with a more wonderful family!!!

I'll be visiting to see her grow and watch her progress.

Blessings... *Linda*
