This has been hard for me to write, but I lost a dear friend this past week. My big, happy yellow dog Emma has passed away.

This is my favorite photo of Emma & I. 
And that's all I have to say about that.

I love you Emma.


  1. I'm so sorry Gretchen. She had a charmed life looking after you. Hugs!!!

  2. Thank you Heather, I really miss her! Hugs are greatly appreciated!! Bear hugs back!

  3. I lost my beloved dog this summer, I know how much it hurts! I know this is somewhat late but I'm sending you hugs! Emma is now in a better place and she won't be forgotten. I found your blog via the Leaders of Blogs team on Etsy and thought I'd check it out. Just lovely, your illustrations are magical :) Have a nice one, xoxo

    1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss as well, Karolina! I have been having a hard time without her. Some days it is just overwhelming. :(

      Sending hugs back to you as well. Your kind words mean so much to me. God bless you!
