Emma's rescue and bad luck.

Emma was just a puppy and she was dumped at Pebble Beach at Lake Lavon. My niece found her and her mom wouldn't let her keep her. My daughter brought her home to try to find her a home. l fell in love with with her and kept her.

She is 5 years old and now. I just found out she has bladder cancer. My vet says I may have a year left with her, and I'm so heartbroken.

I let her have fried chicken and whatever else she wants. I take her riding in the truck; she loves that. I don't know what I'm going to do when it comes time I have to let her go. She is my everything. She is always by my side everywhere I go and she sleeps with me. This is hurting so bad.
