Misa Minnie The SMARTEST Yorkie


This dog is  soooooo  smart!  She can do about 100 tricks  in 5 minutes!

My name is Misa Minnie. But you can call me Misa for short. It means beautiful sand in japanese and is pronounced (me-sah). My mom calls me Misa and her roommate calls me Minnie and depending who you ask they call me Minnie Misa or Misa Minnie! And thats how i got my blog name! Me So Mini Misa. :) As the story goes my mom thought it would be great to try to take a picture of me once a day so at the end of the year we can see how much i’ve changed! :) Your welcome to follow along as I share my story and adventures in life and if mom forgets a day don’t be shy to bug her about it. We need as much help as we can get in remembering. 

Recently, 
After a month long of receiving and organizing boxes coming from all over the USA (and even a few from out of the country) Misa Minnie and the Owned by Yorkie girls went to visit their friends at Project Hope Alliance. They collected items for the entire month of March 2014 accumulating over 3000 items sent to them by their supportive fans and friends. Special thanks to everyone that participated in our Drive and to our wonderful friends that helped on delivery day!

Fun Facts about Yorkshire Terriers


Small. Fluffy. Adorable.Loveable. Precious. Your Best Friend!

American Kennel Club  has  five fun facts about this tiny breed with a big personality.
Here's what  say:

Fact 1: Loyalty is No. 1 With This Breed

German Shepherds are loyal, we know, and Labs and Golden Retrievers, sure but Yorkies? In fact, Yorkshire Terriers are known for their incredible loyalty to their owners, preferring to stay close by their owner's side at all times.

Fact 2: They Ran With the Rats!

Yorkshire Terriers were actually originally used for a not-so-glamorous purpose catching rats in clothing mills in the nineteenth century.

Fact 3: A Yorkie Was a War Hero

Smoky the Yorkshire Terrier was quite the hero during World War II. The little fluff ball helped save the lives of soldiers during the war by carrying communications wires through an underground tunnel.

Fact 4: They Didn't Become Yorkshire Terriers Until 1870

The Yorkie made its debut in England in 1861 as a "broken-haired Scotch Terrier." It wasn't until 1870, when a reporter stated, "they ought no longer to be called Scotch Terriers, but Yorkshire Terriers, for having been so improved here," that the name Yorkshire Terrier actually stuck.

Fact 5: Their Grouping Doesn't Become Their Personality

Don't be fooled because the Yorkie is part of the Toy Group this breed is by nature very brave, determined and energetic. They have big personalities and make great family pets.

Yorkshire Terrier Haircuts


Trixie... before and after - she got trimmed up for summer. I like her  hair long, it just takes longer to dry her on bath day.  No matter what length, we all think OUR yorkie, is the cutest little dog around, right?!

Take Your Dog with you for Emotional Support


I always feel bad leaving my dog at home. IN the summer she is not allowed to go to the beach with us  Memorial day thru Labor Day. She can not go to most stores with us and most hotels don't want her. NOW, THAT IS CHANGING! I filed the paperwork and paid a small fee to have her deemed  an Emotional Support animal.  


Under US law an Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is a pet which provides therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship and affection. Emotional Support Animals are not required to have any specialized training, they require only as much training as an ordinary pet requires in order to live peacefully among humans without being a nuisance or a danger to others.
There are two federal laws which grant special rights to owners of Emotional Support Animal:
  • The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 USC 3601, et seq.) allows you to live / stay anywhere you like without pet fees.  Any home, any lodging – even ones that specifically prohibit Dogs. 
  • The Air Carrier Access Act allows you to travel on any airline without paying any pet fees and your Emotional Support Animal is allowed to accompany you into the cabin.

Don't Let Your Yorkshire Terrier Be Stolen


The American Kennel Club says the five AKC-recognized breeds most likely to be stolen are, in descending order: Yorkshire terrier, Chihuahua, French bulldog, Labrador retriever and Pomeranian.
To protect your pet:

• Don’t let your dog off-leash. Keeping it close reduces the likelihood that it will wander off and catch the attention of thieves.

• Don’t leave your dog unattended in your yard, especially if your fenced-in yard is visible from the street.

• If strangers approach you to admire your dog during walks, don’t answer questions about how much the dog cost or give details about where you live.

• Never leave your dog in an unattended car, even if it’s locked.

• Don’t tie your dog outside a store. Patronize only dog-friendly retailers, or leave the dog at home.

• Protect your dog with microchip identification and keep your contact information current with your microchip-recovery service provider.

• If your dog is stolen, file a police report and ask to have the microchip serial number and the dog’s description posted in the “stolen article” category on the National Crime Information Center.

• Keep current photos (profile and headshot) of your dog so you can distribute them immediately if your pet disappears.

• Buy from reputable dealers or rescue groups. If the dog is advertised as purebred, ask for the AKC litter registration number and call AKC customer service at 919-233-9767 to verify registration.

Missing Yorkie in Oregon


Father of 4 killed in 28-car pileup, family dog still missing.

 CLARK COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

A local family is dealing with great loss after the big February snowstorm.
On Thursday, their father was killed in a massive pile up on I-5 created by slick road conditions.  Their family dog, Daisy, was also in the car, and she is still missing.


The father of four was killed in the 28-vehicle pileup on I-5 south of Ridgefield. Deputies say three other people were badly hurt.

According to Scott's family, he couldn't stop in time because of all of the snow piled on the freeway. His car was crushed in-between two truck trailers, and he died instantly. The family had no life insurance and he leaves behind 2 children with special needs,

If you know where Daisy might be, call the East Padden Animal Hospital.

If you want to help the Scott family during this difficult time, you can go to any US Bank and donate to the Matthew Scott Memorial Fund.

You can also donate online at fundrazer.com under Matthew Scott's name at 360-892-1500..

Life Magazine Yorkshire Terrier Portraits


In November 1964, LIFE magazine noted that “a small dog with a sweeping hairdo and a peppery disposition” was pushing the poodle aside as the elegant canine accessory-of-the-moment. LIFE also noted that the small, dynamic Yorkie — for it was none other than the Yorkshire Terrier to which the magazine devoted a multi-page feature — “is no lap dog. It has the dash and spirit of all terriers and is a better ratter than most cats.”

Smart Yorkshire Terrier Saves Woman

I love these stories!

LOUIE (above) pressed his tiny paw on an emergency button on the floor and called for help by yelping into the intercom, after his owner suffered a suspected heart attack.

“He’s my light and day. He’s always beside me whenever I need him. 
He’s more than just a dog” says owner  JUDITH.

She trained the Yorkie to use the button, which provides a hotline to the care services, if she is unconscious and unable to do so and this is the second heroic dead little Louie has done.
Last year he earned himself an animal bravery award from veterinary charity PDSA for raising the alarm when Judith slipped after stepping out of the shower.
