Big Yorkshire Terrier Gets Life Saved from Death Row

OHIO Sixth grader Marquis Reddick receives a kiss from Dru, a 5-year-old Yorkshire terrier belonging to Longfellow Middle School assistant principal Teresa Florez, who's holding dog, on Friday in Lorain, Ohio. Six-graders at the school participated in the Pennies for Pets project, where students donate pennies to gather the $30 required to save a pet from being euthanized.

In the last year, students have saved five dogs, who then were adopted. Just by saving pennies!"What it does is give us hope for the future by learning how to respect animals. There's a whole new generation of young people dedicated to giving up lunch and snack money to help. It's amazing," Wilbur (a teacher ) said.

Wilbur said donations to Pennies for Pets can be made payable to Partners with Paws and sent to P.O. Box 277, Oberlin, OH 44074.

Yorkie Life -Spring Time in Chicago

My dad calls me the SUNSHINE PRINCESS!
I love to lay in the sun, as it streams thru the windows.
And this last week, it has been 65 degrees here in Chicago,
so my dad opened the window for me to look out and smell all
of the scents of Spring in the air!
My dad thinks I enjoy looking out the window -
which really is not true. It the SMELLING.
Dogs smell the air to get a sense of what is going
on all around them!

Little Yorkie Saved With Oxygen at Fire Scene

FIREFIGHTERS saved a dog's life when they tackled a blaze in Greenock, Scotland

They gave oxygen to Eric, a one-year-old Toy Yorkshire terrier named after former Manchester United legend Eric Cantona.

A kitchen fire had broken out in a semi-detached house in Old Inverkip Road and wee Eric was home alone next door.

Teacher Elizabeth Dyer said: "I'm so grateful to them for their help. He's been to the vet for a check-up and he's fine now - full of life as usual."

Cat and Dog Washing Machines

Giving your sweet little Yorkie a weekly bath isn't that bad
of a job. But dog owners that own bigger dogs have
a much harder time. And a groomer will charge at least $25
to bath your pet. And cats, FORGET IT!~Most cats hate water!
A couple years ago the first Pet Washing Machine was launched.
And now, they are really catching on all over Europe and Japan,
and even a couple here in the US.
For about $5-7, the machine wets the pet, sprinkles shampoo,
wets and rinses, and then blow dry's the pet.

The device looks something like an over-sized microwave, with a large opening through which you insert your pet. Once the door is shut (and presumably locked) you pay your money, punch in a few options (anti-flea spray? deodorant? under-body anti-rust coating?), and then stand back and watch as your pet throws a fit of epic proportions while jets of high-pressure suds whisk away all that nastiness, before driers blow them clean.
Some machines have holes so owners can put their
hands in and scrub the pet and the pet feels more connected.

Naka Honda said that his Yorkshire Terrier, Benji,
"hated" the dryer, but so long as the owner stood
outside the glass the dog was ok. Honda added that
he did not think it was cruel, though he admitted Benji
took a bit of getting used to the clean.
The 30-minute process is entirely safe.
I don't think cats will ever like getting wet!
