“My mother has never known such an intelligent dog. In the past, she’s had a Jack Russell and a Cairn terrier, but with Emma you can see her thinking, she is so clever. She likes to maintain eye contact all the time so she knows what’s going on. Emma is fascinated by everything.”
“I take Emma and my mother on holiday a couple of times a year, to holiday cottages in Cornwall and Anglesey where Emma watches Prince William in his “search and rescue helicopter”, checking if he has any of the Royal Corgis with him.”
“On Emma’s holiday in Cornwall this year, she did a day trip to the Scilly Isles in a helicopter. She enjoyed exploring the helicopter but was not so keen when the noisy rotary blades started.”
“She relishes a run on the beach and does a crazy figure-of-eight run in circles, as she enjoys it so much, especially if you chase her.”
“Emma loves her home ground of Yorkshire, running through the fields on the banks of the River Swale in Yorkshire, smelling sheep, cows and her Yorkshire air. Her favourite pastime is walking in the shallow edges of the river. It also keeps her cool. She enjoys puddles on the road and will turn around if she accidentally misses one, to walk through it and continue her walk again.”
“Emma loves all visitors and greets them with a bark, but also barks when they leave, whilst she looks straight into their eyes. She is saying “don’t go” and “can I come with you?” Emma also adores all dogs and wants to be friends with any she meets. They have to be good at playing chase — then she is thrilled.”
