Emma is smart, stubborn & loves to eat almost as much as she loves me. She is 16 yrs young and loves daily walks. She is my greatest source of love, unconditionally. I cannot get too far away from her, bc she always wants to be near me. Emma is a hero. In 2010 a man forced his way into my home and attacked me sexually and physically. He threw me in a room, my hands were tied, and he tied wire to the doorknob to keep me from escaping while he stole my car to get ropes, to tie me up and kidnap me. While he was gone, Emma came to the door where I was locked up and cried for me. That gave me the courage to try and break out of the room Because I never want to see her hurt or sad. I had to take the risk that he wasn’t there. I could not tell because he had the music blasting.
If he had caught me trying to break out he would’ve beat me more, but I had to get out and rescue myself and my fur baby. I pulled hard on the door knob and each time I did the speaker wire he used around the door knob stretched a little more. I finally broke out and called 911. If not for Emma, I would not have had the courage to do that. She is forever my hero....all 18 lbs of her! She has changed my life for the better, then, and in countless other ways.
