Emmett Montgomery is well known in Seattle — if not for his jokes, then for his presence. It’s not a rare sight to see Emmett, big and bearded, walking Donna, tiny and trembling, around 15th Ave. Donna Noble Montgomery is a 12-year-old Chihuahua with what Emmett calls the “most beautiful eyelashes I have ever seen.”
“I have never noticed anybody’s eyelashes until I noticed Donna’s and now I see eyelashes, they’re just not as beautiful as Donna’s,” Montgomery said. If you see Emmett and Donna, admire their eyelashes and say hello.
