Beach Dogs of the Month: Sully & Emmie

What are your full names?
Archduke Sullivan Black and Duchess Amelia Black.... but you can call us Sully and Emmie!  Our parents thought it would be cute to give us royal names since our ancestors were lap dogs to royalty. Even Marie Antoinette had a papillon! 

How long have you two been friends?
Not long! Emmie joined the family in February of this year. After a couple weeks of pouting I finally realized the little cotton ball wasn't going anywhere so I assumed my big brother duties (like teaching her the joys of the beach). 

Read their full interview on our Facebook page!
