Yorkshire Terrier and Baby

You know how your dog  tucks himself in, getting the blanket  JUST  RIGHT?

In this cute video, while the little tot is sleeping peacefully, Misty (the Yorkie)  starts poking around, looking like she's trying to wake the peaceful little bubba up. Curious to see what she was going to do next, the baby's watchful parents pulled out a camera and started recording. What they caught of video is absolutely adorable! Apparently, Misty didn't think her new little human was cozy enough, and proceeds to tuck the baby in nice and secure.

Dogs on Death Row

It just breaks my heart.  How can someone be SO LAZY, to just give up your dog and not even  TRY  to find  a new home  for the pet?  Just dump it off  and not care about the dog's feelings.  SICK!

It happens everyday, dogs are given up and their hearts are broken. Some are adopted out and many out there are put to sleep.

That's what happened to Miley, who was devastated when her owners surrendered her at at Los Angeles pound this week. Miley wouldn't raise her head, terrified at where she was she sat in the corner. Marley, who was another owner surrendered did her best to cheer Miley up. Trying to play with Miley and to get her to lift her head. Marley has already been dumped twice at the shelter, but has a big enough heart to try to cheer up her new friend Miley.

 Both dogs are currently on a tight timeline to find a home before euthanasia as the shelter has limited space. Please contact North Central Animal Care and Control Center at (888) 452-7381, Miley's ID # is A1530442, and Marley's ID # is A1367215.

YORKIES  GET DUMPED OFF TOO.  Please consider  adopting a Yorkie, that needs a home??

Yorkie Needs a Haircut!

Getting to be about that time!

Saturday, December 20, 2014


Since we first got our Yorkie as a tiny puppy - we had decided to pad train her.  We live on the second floor  in Chicago  and knew it would be easier than taking her out, in the COLD!  several times a day.

Pee pads make life so much easier!

We have tried a couple brands, the these Poo Pee Pads ARE THE BEST!

How to Pick a Service Dog

A service dog can be a blessing to someone who really needs help with everyday tasks due to a medical issue or disability. However, it is not a simple task to pick a potential service dog. Here, we will talk about popular service dog breeds. We will tell you all about the particular service dog demeanor that all trainers should strive for when selected a puppy to train. Lastly, we will inform you about service dog intelligence. After reading this article, choosing the right service dog should be a cinch. 

Service Dog Breeds

Although a miniature Yorkie does not make a good service animal, they make great emotional support and therapy dogs. There are a few popular service dog breeds out there. Consider the genetics of the dog, the trainer and breeder, along with the overall dog smarts. For some patients, considerations like allergies and other issues may also come into play. Common service dog breeds include, but are not limited to:

·        Labradors
·        Dobermans
·        Poodle
·        Bichon Frise
·        Labradoodle
·        Schnauzer
·        Shih Tzu
·        Italian Greyhounds

Service Dog Demeanor

What is the perfect service dog demeanor? They need to be calm, cool, and collective. Service dogs must be focused at all time. Things that would distract typical dogs like other animals, vehicles, other people, food or trash on the street, or loud noises must not distract them at all. You must also take care to choose a dog that is not easily angered or frustrated. These dogs must have a demeanor that is constant and rock solid. Health issues cannot be a common problem. Nor can things like anxiety. They must also always be willing to learn something new to help their owners, no matter how trivial the task.

Service Dog Intelligence 

We believe that the last sentence in the service dog demeanor section sums it up. Service dogs have to be very intelligent. By training an already intelligent breed who has a certain temperament, you will most likely get an intelligent dog. For budding training, temperament and Volhard testing can be done to evaluate the intelligence and overall service dog demeanor of a dog. A service dog that is constantly learning, always curious, but calm and cool is very hard to find. This is why some people pay lots of money for already trained dogs, or choose to not choose and train them themselves.

Poker Playing Yorkie Jilli Dog Passes at 17

RICK CARAN and his famous Yorkshire Terrier  JILLI DOG entertained audiences around the world with wildly wonderful Poker Card Tricks!  Sadly, Jilli passed  on recently, at age 17.

Rick said on Facebook: "Good Night Sweet Jilli Dog Sept 1998 - Sept 2014.
My Sweet Jilli Dog, I don't know what I did to deserve such a blessing in my life, as you, but I will love you, and miss you, forever... My heart is breaking, and I could fill volumes about your sweet and gentle nature, and the hearts you touched, and SMILES that you have spread, but I am tired, it's been a long and very sad day, so I am going to sleep now, and dream about how you changed my life, showed me unconditional love, and brought me, and so many others such amazing joy... I cherish the day you walked into my life, those 16 years ago, a sickly pup from the street, and you turned it upside down... It's been a great ride... Thank you..."

Heartbreaking to lose our children.  :-(

Missing Yorkie from Texas Found in Indianapolis

These stories are so unbelievable!

A 10-year-old Yorkie has turned up in Indianapolis    SIX YEARS  after he disappeared from his comfortable home in Austin, Texas, reports WTHR in Indianapolis.  (1100  miles  away!)

A kind passerby saw the forlorn Yorkie on an Indianapolis sidewalk earlier this week and took pity on the poor pup. She brought the matted, hungry and flea-bitten pooch to Post Road Vet Clinic, hoping someone would claim him.

One of the first things clinicians look for in a found animal is an identification microchip.

“Looking at him when he came in, we were like, ‘He is not going to be chipped,’ because he was covered in fleas, looked terrible, his teeth were terrible,” vet tech Diana Redmond told WTHR.
When the clinicians scanned for the chip, they were surprised to learn the pup was not only registered, but that he disappeared from Austin, Texas, six years ago. They called the phone number attached to the identification and the dog’s owners were ecstatic to learn their dog was found.

 Soon, he will be reunited with his family.

“We actually have someone who is traveling to Austin Thursday night, so she will take him with her,” Danielle Beck of Indy Lost Pet Alert told WTHR.

The key to this homecoming was the microchip.

“It is rare for a dog to be missing for six years and be secured with a microchip,” Beck told the television station.

How does a dog survive 6 years on his own - and no one bothered with him along the way???

Yorkie as a Service Dog Therapy Dog

My little girl is now officially an Emotional Support / Service Dog.

She can now go EVERYWHERE with me.  For a small fee  I got her the paperwork.  ($70)  and  for about  $40  and  I got her a little  vest to wear.  That allows her to go into restaurants  with me and hotels.

For air travel,  most airlines require a note from your doctor as well, stating  your dog helps in relieving  anxiety, in my case. And most airlines  will waive  the normal  travel fee for a dog and most airlines allow me to have her on my lap, instead of under the seat, stressing both me and her out. Every airlines handles this a little different. So when booking your ticket, explain you have an emotional support dog.

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. 

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.
