This little ball of fluff is Emmie, and she is the first pet I've ever had. I got her when she was a year old from the Arizona Humane Society. I had some reservations about getting a dog, I wasn't quite sure what I was getting myself into and was really scared to make such a big commitment. After playing with her at the shelter, she wrapped her little paws around me when they came to take her back to her kennel. That was the sign I needed that this was the right path for me. Emmie came home with me that day and the rest is history! When I am scared to make a big decision, I look at her sweet little face and she reminds me that sometimes you have to take a big risk to get rewarded. You'll be seeing more of Emmie in future posts on the blog.
