Stop Labeling Yorkies as Vicious Dogs

Just like every breed, there are good and bad and here is why they are good!

Stop Labeling Yorkies as Vicious Dogs

I am blessed with six months old and an eleven-week old Yorkies. They are my world and everyone should know that they are not horrible dogs.

1. They look like teddy bears

2. They always look good in little bows

3. They are hypoallergenic

When people are allergic to dogs it's because of their dander. With shorter dogs that do not shed, like Yorkies, they are typically dog allergy-friendly!

4. They are excellent watch dogs

They may not be capable of knocking down a home intrude but with their keen sense of hearing and loud bark, they will surely you let you know if their is a stranger or something they don’t like, even if it is a leaf.

5. They are low maintenance

Sometimes puppies fall asleep anywhere... even if it is on your purse.

while this doesn't mean they don't need exercise and love, they do not need to go for walks every day for their physical and mental health. Their tiny stomachs allow for food to last a good time since they can't eat a lot. So you can save money!

6. They are small and cuddly

Yorkies are a perfect size. You don't have to worry about a 100lb dog jumping onto your chest. They can lay right on your chest or stomach and are perfect for snuggling against you in the cold.

No matter your stances on Yorkies or dogs I think we can all agree that my two Yorkie puppies are adorable.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
