Hey guys and gals, the last few weeks had been pretty rough. Having just slightly recovered from lots of family related tragedies and (health) issues, our 15 year old husky mix "Buck" suddenly suffered a major stroke ( a "real" stroke, a rare occurrence with dogs) which forced us to put him to sleep. A devastating experience, especially for my mother who can't work anymore due to her heavy rheumatism. The dog kept her busy, gave her some prospect for life. So, seeing how much playing with our neighbors' puppy cheered her up, my brother and I decided to surprise her with a pooch... Meet Emma, the little pug lady: (forgive the crappy quality, I forgot to set the resolution higher) I originally planned to pick up a pug from a shelter for my GF and myself (you might remember that thread) but sadly, that didn't plan out. I now got little Emma from a childhood friend of my mother.
