Yorkshire Terrier Is Number One in New York City

AKC announced that the YORKSHIRE TERRIER
Dropped to number 3 this year in the US.
However, it is the number one dog, for the second year
in a row, in NEW YORK CITY!

"New York City loves their small dogs," said Lisa Peterson, spokeswoman for the American Kennel Club, which released the list of the most popular pure breeds. "It just reinforces the fact that New Yorkers live a busy, fast-paced lifestyle and need their portable pooches."

FYI- I would guess the Yorkie is Number one is Europe also.
Last year in Prague and Paris, I saw Yorkies EVERYWHERE~!

Male Yorkie Marking His Territory.HELP!

So how do you housebreak a Yorkie?
OY. There are 1001 answers.
Some train easier than others.
Miss trixie was 75% pad trained when she
was 6 months. However, she didn't hit
100% until she was 1 year old.
A reader wrote a note today asking
How do I stop my Male Yorkie from marking his territory???
So we thought we would open it up for discussons. Any thoughts?

Healthy All Natural Dog Treats from VitaLife

As an online publisher, people frequently ask me and my dad's to evaluate products. Imagine my surprise today when a BIG BOX from Dog Time Media and VitaLife arrived with MY NAME ON IT! Miss Trixie Lee Deluxe! I could smell something good inside!

My dad opened it up and it was 3 BIG BAGS of treats! Oh boy, was I in heaven. The first bag was Duck and Sweet Potato Twists. My dad was happy because the label said "no preservatives and no byproducts or fillers." It's a real piece of dried sweet potato wrapped with a real piece of duck jerkey! They are like gourmet doggie appetizers.

The next one I sampled was the Healthy Hips and Joints Chicken Tenders - with Glucosamine and Chondroitin which helps to rebuild and maintain cartilage in dogs. (They also make one for Healthy Skin and Coat..a formula that contains Vitamin A and E to benefit your dog's healthy skin and coat.) We have had something similar from other companies, but I have to say, these were nice thick strips and I really enjoyed them.

The bag says, "Guaranteed to have your furry friend begging for more, VitaLife Chicken Tenders are the perfect way to treat your dog, naturally! " - and they are right. I beg for these all the time. My dad actually likes to cut them into small pieces and gives them to me as treats when I do tricks.

This last one was MY FAVORITE! Pieces of banana wrapped with a piece of dried chicken. YUM! My dad likes to give them to me because they are all natural. He said,"there is no salt, nothing artificial, no glycerin added and no sorbitol..." I don't know what any of that even is - I just know it tastes good!

I highly recommend these treats! I rate them 5 BIG BONES!
