Today we are remembering Debucher Baguette, Emma, who passed away unexpectedly on this day, October 30th, 2018. Mom still misses her a lot. Bailie and I spent several years with Emma, but Olivia and Nelson never met her. Oddly, Mom, Olivia, and Nelson have a trial today which is being held right next to the Emergency Clinic where Emma passed away.
Emma was born in England on September 11th, 2006, making her just twelve years old when she passed. She packed so much into her short life and really paved the way for all of us to have an even better life than she had. Emma traveled a lot, loved nose work, enjoyed modeling, and the blog is something she is really famous for.
At ten months old Emma moved to the USA where she became an avid Vikings fan. She was always rooting for her team, no matter how bad of a season they were having.
Being from England, Emma loved hats. She had quite a collection of them too! Some of the hats we wear now, but some are special and we can’t bear to wear them. Shortly before her passing she bought this fancy new hat for Halloween. Thankfully Mom took her photo wearing it as she didn’t make Halloween in 2018. No one has worn this hat since.
Emma enjoyed nose work so much. Traveling for trials with Mom was a favorite thing for her to do. She did pretty well considering Mom was new to dog sports and was trying to figure it all out herself. This is her at the start line at her last trial about six weeks before her passing. She did earn her Level 2 Interior Title that day, which is such a nice memory for Mom. Emma’s color was red, thus the red accessories and Mom’s red shirt. She hasn’t worn the red shirts since that trial.
Our late sister left so many paw prints for us to try to fill and follow. She will never be forgotten. We could go on for pages and pages talking about her as she did so much in her life. You can read more about Emma on her Page, or under the The Staff page of our blog.
