Awwwwww, look at that cute little fella...

Buddy might be small, but from what I know of Yorkies they are just bundles of energy! And as small as dogs their size are they produce a lot of heat, so he should keep both you and your wife warm in bed at night. Because your bed is where he'll be sleeping, right? :razz:

PS - Hi ya from another Yorkie... I took care of this one earlier this summer for three weeks while her parents were traveling overseas, even at 10 years old she kept me busy!

Smart man to not resist wifey. I never had a Yorkie but friends or other family who had them were nice pooches.

@tricrider: now that is a nice looking little girl. She looks like made that post.

He was, and still is every weekend (and then some), great company. I am smitten. He is the first doggo that I have ever allowed to lick me all over. Except lips. Lips are forboden. Otherwise wifey has problem with that. So I just roll my lips under and he covers everywhere around that. You know, to help the dog's psyche. I hear licking creates good endorphins. It must be true cuz he can lick me not just for mere seconds, but for a couple minutes without stopping. We have fun toy play times too, like clockwork, always after meals.

Happy thanksgiving all. Pets included!

He'll need snowshoes because he doesn't have much ground clearance! NO dressing dogs up! :lol:

Great to hear your and jmd's dogs are working out and you're enjoying them!

Speaking of pocket-sized pooches...

I've been babysitting a chihuahua for the last couple of nights because her owner went out of town for Thanksgiving, naturally I let the pooch sleep on my bed under the covers. Not only did it take her forever to burrow and get comfortable, she also snored!

I didn't get a wink of sleep, but that's a'ight, I love her anyway. :)

This pocket pooch (aka Tumbleweed, Mr. Grinchfooty) typical with disheveled look from getting wet (mostly by drinking) before grooming:

Or sometimes he gets wet this way (cold on the rudder):

After pet grooming (no more Mr. Grinchfooty, for now):

You'd think YEEEHAA as in 'get me outta here' or 'which way to the door inside'. He actually seems to enjoy the snow as long as it's not too deep for him. But this picture seems to say otherwise:

Yo, Mr. Tumbleweed - as long as you're not overcooking those turns please do enjoy the snow for as long as you can!

(Pssst - it's a huge secret between those long-haired dogs that are actually supposed to be pillow dogs, sometimes they do actually enjoy rolling in the snow.)

Anyhoo, all facetiousness aside - that doggie looks great, welcome to the CN kennel!

Paw-five from the Tobster.

Am in the middle of doing my taxes right now, and the doggie is just about the only thing that is keeping me calm right about now.

In other words - don't ever underestimate the calmness that therapy dogs/animals will bring to you during times of extreme stress.
