"Hi there, I am Emily. I am still here since 2000. People pay more attention to me than to the gentleman above. Psst, don't tell him, but I am better looking too. On the other hand, my buddy below is a real cutie"


Hi there, I am Otto (funny name for a dog, isn’t it?). I joined the family in 2008, after spending my first 5 years elsewhere. I am the guy who crawled 200 meters into a corrugated drain pipe. As the tube was too tight for a U-turn, two volunteer firefighters had to dig me out in the middle of the night; took them only 5 hours.
