A Tribute to Emmitt

Hi friends!

I'm sure most of you have heard by now that another of our dear dear Puggy friends has crossed the Rainbow Bridge...we'll miss you Emmitt!

This is sweet Emmitt at his 13th birthday party last year! It's one of our favorite pics of him.

Now I never met Emmitt Pug to Pug...but his sweet mom (Hi Auntie Melissy!) was our FIRST Blogger friend outside of our Indy peeps!

Isn't it cool how people can get to be friends on the interwebs? Emmitt and his sweet mom have been such great friends to us and the entire Puggy community...always there with a kind word, smile, a donation of something great to help others, a funny story or just a short and sweet "hello". We know that Emmitt was the inspiration for so many of these things and he will be so so so missed!

Auntie Melissy and mom have talked on the phone a few times (so mom could order stuff from PugNotes!) and Mom's favorite story about Emmitt was about him eating so many frozen peas (his favorite food!) that he got BRAIN FREEZE!!! LOL

Here is Emmitt hoovering up frozen peas!

SO....we thought it would be a PERFECT tribute to Emmitt to slip on my AuntMelissy sweater and have some frozen peas!


OK...Frozen peas are ready......



Emmitt dude...we're so happy that you had a happy long life! We hope you're enjoying your party on the other side of the bridge and whooping it up with Stubby and enjoying a feast of meatloaf, Popeye's and TONS of frozen peas (without the brain freeze of course!)

HEY...keep it down up there guys!!! It's hard to keep up the routine of turdliness and jackassery down here with all that RACKET going on up there!!!!!

Emmitt's peeps put together this awesome video that made us laugh, cry and smile all at once. We think you'll enjoy it too....make sure those speakers are CRANKED and get up and DANCE!

Emmitt would have LOVED it and I'm sure is dancing and singing right along with all of us!

Run free Emmitt! We love you!

Dear Aunty Laura, this here is helpful Howie. Thank you for deddy-cating this to our good pal EmmittPants, heropuggy and now guardian angel to all of us snorfleys. In the spirit of helpfulness, I noticed one pea had rollt under the table back there. I would like to come over and take care of that for my buddy Sal, no charge. I will wear my Emmitt sweater too, jest in case that makes you open up that bag o peas again. Emmitt has been sending me down some meaty loafs from his easy bake oven all week. I'll bring one over for Sal. A half of one. Well okay a bite of one.
love and big hugs,
Howie PeeMan

Awwww, I didn't realize that Emmitt and Stubby were friends in pugson! That's awesome! :) They're definitely keeping each other company up there! And my two just looooooove frozen peas - though I've never given them enough to cause a puggy brain freeze. What DOES that look like, anyway? :)

Hi Salinger,
A simply perfect tribute from you to Emmett. You did him proud! Plus you got peas. Doesn't get much better than that. I will be working the doots word into a post soon. Stay tuned!

Vito and Gina said...

Oh Sal, we loved your tribute. I'm so glad we can all help each other celebrate Emmitt's life, even if it does make our eyes "leaky."

Later friend,

Hi Salinger

I want to talk my moms into giving me some peas. I know I would love them.
We watched the Emmitt slide show,,, and I think I can still hear Emmitt along with Stubby dancing a up a storm and I can hear that voice of Emmitt sing.
Thank you for sharing about the peas that Emmitt loved
