  • Emmi's teeth were legendary, She left her marks on the technicians who cut her nails, gave her pills, And emptied her bladder.

  • Emmi loved children. Emmi loved people. To her neighbors, she was known as a social butterfly.

  • Emmi's bark was deep and loud. People were amazed that a bark that deep could some from such a small dog.
