Yorkies should be celebrated every day!
Yorkshire Terriers aka Yorkies are small but mighty dogs that are bred to be companions. Originally bred for chasing down and killing vermin, they tend to be clever, brave, determined, feisty, energetic, and have little tolerance for other animals — except Rosie who adores Callisto.
Yorkies love celebrating National Puppy Day
Yorkies are such popular dogs and make such good pets for several reasons. Here are a few:
They’re small: Their size makes them easy to carry around, walk on a leash, or hold in your lap.
They adapt happily to apartment living: Just about any size living space is big enough for Yorkies, and you can potty train them to go indoors or outdoors.
They’re easier to travel with than larger dogs: Yorkies usually fit within the weight restrictions placed on pets. They’re also usually less expensive to board than larger dogs.
They require less food than larger dogs: A half to three-quarters cup of kibble a day is usually enough to keep your Yorkie well-fed, which makes them cheaper to maintain.
There are so many reasons to celebrate Yorkies
They require less food than larger dogs: A half to three-quarters cup of kibble a day is usually enough to keep your Yorkie well fed, which makes them cheaper to maintain.
They’re loving, devoted, and very affectionate: This makes them great personal companions and good family pets. They love the interaction with their humans.
They’re hypoallergenic: Because of the type of coat they have (no undercoat), they don’t shed as much as many other breeds: So, Yorkies can be a good choice for people with allergies.
In general, small dogs live longer than large dogs: Yorkies, as a rule, have an average life span of 12 to 14 years.
So let’s celebrate Yorkies, our favorite dogs, today aka National Puppy Day and every day!!
So go enjoy those little bright, lively, inquisitive, spunky, excitable chaser with lots of snuggles.
