Chapter One

I always wondered what it would be like to get a dog.

But, whoa! I never expected what was about to happen when my mom finally told me it was time to go to the shelter and choose one ...

The very first time I saw Emrys, my heart sprung open wide with joy! I could tell that his heart felt the same way too. We were instant BFFATs—best friends forever, always together.

Running was Emrys' favorite thing to do, so we jogged almost every day. Some days he was so fast, I could hardly keep up with him!

I loved Emrys soso much. He was very clever! He helped me with my homework. He listened to me when I just hadhad to talk about anything or everything.

I always felt happy when we were together. I noticed that other people must have felt the same way with their pets too, even though their pets were different than Emrys.

Emrys was part of my family. At every birthday and holiday party, Emrys was there. Celebration after celebration, season after season, Emrys was always by my side.

One spring day, while I was playing with Emrys, I noticed he wasn't feeling well. I took him to my veterinarian, Dr. Bacon. He said that Emrys had a disease that had created a tumor, which was a lump inside his little body. The tumor needed to be removed to make him feel better.

Emrys had to have an operation! I was so afraid that something terrible was going to happen to him. I cried and cried. I finally decided the best thing I could do was ask for help, so I e-mailed all my friends and family.

Emrys' operation was a success! Dr. Bacon removed the tumor that was making Emrys feel bad, but I had to wait a few days till I knew for sure that he was going to be okay.
