It has been 2 years today since we said goodbye to the sweetest dog ever, my Emmy. I still miss her.
Xander asked me a few weeks ago if Emmy was in Heaven. I answered him honestly, "I don't know." He looked sad for a second and then said, "Well what do you think?" I smiled and said, "I think so, buddy."
And really - I don't know. I do realize that Emmy never accepted God's gift to us through Jesus. I know that. But she wasn't human - not created in God's image. She wasn't born into sin like we are. So who knows? Maybe she's in Heaven chasing a ball right now. I like to think of her that way, and so does my boy. I may get to Heaven and find out I was wrong, but by then it won't really matter anyway. So for now, that's how we'll think of her - happy, running and playing with Jesus and kissing our 2 babies we haven't gotten to meet yet.
