Meet Emy

Both Emy books are based on true stories, and star Chris Turnbull's family dogs Emy & Elsa.

Emy was a rescue dog that was abandoned with her brothers, sisters and mother in October 2004.

In December 2004 Emy was brought back to her new home, she was the runt of the litter and was very timid to begin with. She soon turned into a loveable little dog who stole the hearts of all who knew her.

Elsa came into the shelter at about 3 months old, during this time Chris was working as a volunteer at the shelter and would walk Elsa on a regular basis. By Christmas Elsa had been in the shelter for nearly 5 months and had yet to find a home, this broke Chris' heart knowing that she would be in the shelter over Christmas. In January Chris convinced his family to meet Elsa, and it wasn't long before she came home to join the family.
