Welcome to Emily Week!

Well, folks. As Samuel L. Jackson said in Jurassic Park, “Hold on to your butts.”

Emily and I are getting married this Friday. It’s no secret Emily is smart, funny, kind, supportive and beautiful, so I feel like one lucky dog. How does a girl like that end up with a knucklehead like me? I had some help.

Who could possibly resist the charm of puppy Eko!?

That’s why I’m officially declaring it “Emily Week” here on the blog. It seems only fitting to give credit to the pups who helped the princess realize this frog of a blogger might one day become her prince charming. I’d like to kick the week off by sharing some of my favorite photos of Emily and Eko together.

Like me, Eko loves nothing more than a hug from Emily

Eko was, is and always will be a complete momma’s boy

Wherever Emily goes, you can be sure Eko will follow

Eko loves showering Emily with affection. If he happens to score a bit of ice cream in the process, it’s an added bonus

And when Em comes home from work Eko always knows how to make her feel appreciated

Emily works long and crazy hours at the hospital. When she’s home she often zonks out on the couch. And there’s no better napping buddy than Eko.

In winter months, he acts as a heated blanket

On warm sunny days Eko is a comfy headboard

And year round, Eko is happy to be little spoon

I owe Eko bigtime for always helping me make Emily smile!

“Wait a second, it kind of sounds like Emily is marrying you because you have an awesome dog…” you say.

“SHHH, keep your voice down!” I say. I take care of Eko, he takes care of me. And I’m happy we both take care of Emily.

So welcome to Emily Week! Well, every week is Emily Week, but this week I’m excited to share some of my favorite moments with my favorite person. It’s because of her this little dog and pony show known as Marking Our Territory is possible.
