Emma is a popular lady who seems pretty busy, so I'm glad I had the chance to ask her a few questions. Here's a little bit of background on Miss Emma.
"I was born in the UK, just outside London. Mom picked me up when I was 9 months old and we moved to the North Sea Coast in Germany just north of Hamburg. At 10 months, we all moved to the Twin Cities in Minnesota and I have been here ever since."Emma enjoys chasing wabbits and squirrels. She claims to be an "ace at catching wabbits in the yard". She's also pretty good at nose work and hopes to get some titles in that this year. Her favorite treats include wabbit jerky and bison jerky.
Of course, I wanted to know what makes Emma a Pawsome Pet. Here's what she had to say -
"Mom thinks I’m adorable, funny, and always in a happy mood. No matter what, I always make her smile."I agree - Emma is great at making people smile. That definitely makes her a Pawsome Pet! And every lovely lady has something special about themselves. Emma's favorite thing about herself? Her ears.
"My long floppy's. Everyone loves them as they are so long and cute. I used to trip over them when I was a puppy. They are a lot of work to keep neat and clean, though."
As I mentioned above, Emma is a rare breed of dog - the GBGV or Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen. Try saying that a few times fast... she's also a model and has even written a book about her life. Actually, I have a copy of Emma's book. I gave it to my daughter one year for Christmas and she loved it.
"The GBGV is a rare breed, still not full AKC since our numbers are too low, but we are now in the Miscellaneous Class. The camera is my friend and I love to model. I have done several photo shoots for Target product packing. I also wrote a book with some of my adventures. It came out in September 2013 and is available as an ebook or paperback on Amazon.com."
Have you met Miss Emma before? If not, she writes a very popular blog called My GBGV Life. Emma is also on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube. Give her a visit and say hello!
Be sure to stop by next Friday for another Pawsome Pet of the Week!
