8 Reasons Yorkie-Poos Are The Best Signifigant Others

Why spend so much effort dating when the best life partner you could ask for is your puppy?

8 Reasons Yorkie-Poos Are The Best Signifigant Others
The Yorkie Times

Regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, or relationship status, I can guarantee that a Yorkie-Poo is the best S.O. (significant other) you could possibly have. Don't believe me? Let's go on a journey together, and we'll use my personal puppy S.O as an example

1. They Won't Make You Sick

Yorkies (Yorkshire Terriers) and Poodles are both hypoallergenic breeds, so a pup resulting from the mix of these breeds will also be hypoallergenic. So even if you're allergic to dogs, these lil' balls of fluff can still be your darling companions.

2. No Break-Ups

Yorkie-Poos (the adorable name for a cute lil mutt* with both Yorkie and Poodle parentage) are some of the most devoted dogs I've ever known. These pups will give you as much love (if not more!) as you give to them. They are happy to spend their nights in bed watching hours of Netflix or acting as moral support for all frantic all-nighters. Your Yorkie-Poo will never forget to call, or keep you waiting for a date.

*Fun Fact: Technically, all "mixed breeds" are mutts

3. They're Fantastic Listeners

Yorkshire Terriers and Poodles are some of the smartest dog breeds, so it shouldn't come as a shock that the cross of both is a brilliant little booger. Yorkie-Poos are notoriously easy to train, and thrive on the approval of their owners. So if you, like me, do better being able to process things verbally (homework, life decisions, why on Earth that character got killed off, etc) your pup will gladly listen, and gives plenty of feedback in the form of puppy eyes, head tilts, tail wags and enthusiastic kisses.

4. Unwavering Affection

These dogs are some of the most affectionate snuggle-bugs I've ever met. If you need a S.O. who will give you love, kisses, snuggles and fun dates (tug-of-war anyone?) then a Yorkie-Poo S.O. is the one for you! Snuggling with you pup is good for your mental health and theirs, so enjoy those cuddles guilt free!

5. Waking Up

Imagine how much better your days will be waking up to a face like this every single morning. Floppy ears, soft curly fur, and the eternal teddy-bear-style smile make mornings slightly less intolerable.

6. Sleepy Time

Think of Yorkie-Poos as the canine equivalent of the Energizer Bunny; they can run around and play like crazy but, when they crash, they crash hard. Suddenly, you've gone from having a tiny speed demon darting about to a lump of sleepy pup who will curl up next to you (and/or their favorite stuffed toy) for hours.

7. They Don't Judge

This is my lil guy, Watson, passed out on a pile of pillows and blankets and sweatshirts. Even on days you don't make great life choices, your puppy S.O. will still love you. And besides, if he/she is asleep on your laundry, it's a perfectly good excuse to procrastinate on washing a little longer.

8. This Face

The little heart shaped nose, big eyes that stare into your soul and still think you're perfect, the constant smile... These dogs are perfection personified, and are definitely the best roommates/friends/platonic life partners/S.Os anyone could ask for.

*All pictures above are of my dog, Watson Fawkes. He's a now 4 year-old Yorkie-Poo my family gave me right before I headed up to college. He is firmly convinced that he is a human, as well as convinced he is my literal child and my protector.*

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
