If you’re anything like me, you love dogs, especially small dogs. They are so full of life, energy, and spunk. Although they can easily be sat on, they are full of bravery and pride.
About three years ago my dad brought me to pick up my very own miniature Yorkie pup that I had been begging him for. Little did I know she would change our whole lives. She became a member of the family immediately and had everyone wrapped around her little paws.
To be honest, I wanted a miniature Yorkie so bad only because they looked SO adorable. After having one for three years, I still agree they are so very cute, but also so very aggravating. So cute and so aggravating that, right after fussing and yelling at them for being naughty, you can’t help but pick them up and apologize for disciplining them.
With that being said, most Yorkie owners get into a lot of the same situations and probably have the same thoughts. Here are some things that all Yorkie owners can relate to:
1. The terribly loud barking EVERY single time the doorbell rings or someone knocks at the door.
Sometimes you just want to put a sign on your door telling anyone and everyone who arrives at your house to just text you so that you can walk to the door without your pup making your ear drums bleed.
2. The scary, random spurts of crazy energy.
Nope, I’m not talking about the owner. It’s the Yorkie. When he/she gets excited from some random brain fart and begins running ALL over the house in circles, cutting corners and you’re wondering how they don’t hit anything and keel over. It becomes sort of scary when there is growling involved, but it is also one of the funniest things I’ve witnessed my Yorkie do.
3. The look of envy when you have food.
I’m sure it’s not only Yorkies that do this, but when you have food, sometimes you just want to hide in a closet and eat in peace as if you have some hungry toddler going after your food because your Yorkie is always watching. ALWAYS.
4. Toys. Toys everywhere.
I don’t know about your Yorkie, but mine LOVES her toys. And boy we sure spoil her with them. All 10 toys and counting are loved by her and are always spread throughout the living room. Be sure to watch out for the bone, because just like Legos, it will get you in the night.
5. The mushy, sleepy snuggles
Have you ever picked up your Yorkie while they are sleeping? Maybe you haven’t because that’s the only time you like them? Well, next time, pick him/her up. So mushy and soft and they will literally let you love on them without making the devil come out like usual. (This is my favorite.)
Although sometimes Yorkies can be the most annoying thing to ever have been created, they can also be your favorite little sidekicks.
There are things to love and also things not to love so much about being a Yorkie owner, but I promise once you have one, you won’t be able to remember a time before having them.
