Hello again it is me Emmy .My sisters and I have tried to be really good this year, we were not always successful at that, but then again who’s perfect right? So where should we begin, hum mm? My sister Tuesday (she is the little weight challenged black and white dog) would like to talk about getting a special Queen throne because somebody convinced her she was the queen of this kingdom, little does she know I am the King and Emperor so I out rank her. What my sister Chiquita and I think is that Tuesday should get a gym membership or a subscription to Jenny Craig (but please do not tell her that.) My sister Chiquita( the other black and white dog in case you forgot) would like to have a new sweater, she gets cold a lot in the winter, and let’s face it she is kind of a spoiled princess but then I am sure you already know that without my having to explain it. She would also like to discuss the possibility of not getting her toes wet when it rains and she has to go outside. I tried to tell her she was talking with the wrong guy for that one but you know how girls are. I guess that just leaves me, and as you know I am pretty easy to please.  I would like to have a bone or maybe two and I would like my family (and parents) to be happy. Oh I almost forgot would it be possible to get a pool next year, so I do not have to pretend the sprinkler is a pool because to be honest it is so not the same thing.

Thanks Santa for reading this and Merry Christmas,


This Holiday season we would like to say thank you to our wonderful clients and all of the blessings that this year has brought us. Last year we lost a dear friend of the family. Don Clay was truly a gentle soul that was a great inspiration to many of us here in San Miguel. Recently we have learned that he was also a secret writer. One of the wonderful quotes he wrote  and was recently found, we wanted to share during this Holiday Season.

“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To speak of health, happiness, and prosperity to every person that you meet. To make all of your friends aware of the special Qualities within them. To look at the sunny side of everything, and let your optimism work to make your dreams come true. To think, work for, and expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget past mistakes and press on towards a greater future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times, as a smile radiates warmth and love. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself, that you have no time left to criticize others. To be too wise for worry, too tolerant for anger, and too courageous for fear. To be happy. ”

Today I am thankful that my loving family let me write this post.

My Name is Emeril, Emmy for short. Some times I am called the Slinkenstein but I am not for sure why.

That’s me slinked up on the couch, under the covers with my favorite pillow. One of the things I am thankful for; pillows and lazy mornings.

As thanksgiving is rapidly approaching I wanted to list all the things I am thankful for and maybe you are thankful for these things too.

I am Thankful for;

There is family and friends and warm homemade treats.

Dinner at Home, and a Home where I eat.

Time to play in the sun, though now it is dark by seven.

A God that believes all Dogs go to heaven.

Places to lay my head when I want to be lazy.

Play dates with my Sisters where we all can go crazy.

When it is cold, there is a warm sunny spot.
