Dear Old Dog

Emma is probably about 10 or 11 years old now. Since I adopted her we don't know her exact birthday. She's gotten grey around the chin but has mostly been healthy. But this morning she lost her balance and fell on the way outside. And later this morning she fell again after greeting me at the front door as I returned home from work. We visited Dr. Olson. And he suspects lymphoma... We await the test results and love, love, love her. Edward has offered many hugs this afternoon. He has asked if Emma's leg is broken like Red Rocket's.


  1. Oh, that is a hard one to hear. I hope it isn't true. Fingers and prayers here for a good test result.

  2. Dearest Emma--all of us at the Geist household are sending hugs, kisses, love and good wishes your way.
