Saddened by the loss of my Pug Emma

My precious little Pug girl was taken from us exactly one week after her symptoms first started. Words cannot express how thankful I am to have such wonderful supportive friends and family.
Your posts, emails and phone calls mean the world to me.  I appreciate each and every one of you.

I received Emma's ashes and the results the necropsy Thursday evening (4/19/12) and will post soon. 


  1. Mindy,
    Emma was a very beautiful girl. I bet her and Payton have become fast friends in heaven.

  2. Mindy, thank you so mug for sharing yours and Emma's story with us all. You Re healing as you are helping so many pug parents learn more about PDE. Emma was adorable. I am quite glad she isn't suffering anymore. Keep up this great work you are doing :)


  3. Boy it sure is hard reading about all these precious little beings that have to go on to the rainbow bridge too soon. I lost my little Zoe a few months ago and I haven't been the same since.
    Your little Emma looks to be a beautiful spirit and she was lucky to have such a caring mom as you. Thank you for taking your time to try and educate everyone on this disease.
    I wish you the best and hope you get a little girl or boy into your life again. Soon I hope to be bringing another little clown into my life again, but Zoe will always have been my first little girl.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss and not much I can say other than I became aware of PDE through the research I did before getting my Pug Hektor. We live in the UK and we do not have, as far as I know, this disease, but my Hektor is half American, his Dad came from Candylands Kennel in Ohio. I researched them and they seem to be a good kennel, but these things often slip into the best establishment. He is slightly younger than Emma and has enough trouble with allergies so I hope he will remain clear. I am glad for her that she passed away quickly, watching her suffer would be terrible. You may make the acquaintance of some others on Pugslife who have had the same loss, but it is good to spread the word. One person confronted the Amish Breeder who her friend had got the Pug from, but with no result. Helena
