Christmas Yorkie

I LOVE the holidays!
But I HATE getting dressed up!
We had a bunch of friends over last night
and my dad insisted I wear my holiday coat.
He gave me lots of treats! YUM!

Best Holiday Video For Dogs


Watch these adorable dogs decorate cookies and get ready to celebrate the holidays in style. They're not only spreading good cheer, they have an important message to share— Make a holiday wish come true for a homeless dog or cat...ADOPT!

Best Friends Animal Society is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships that will bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets®. At the core of Best Friends' work is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty, and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will be the rule for all pets and adoption will be the first option for everyone. Making this dream a reality is the mission we call No More Homeless Pets. The society's leading initiatives in animal care and community programs are coordinated from its Kanab, Utah, headquarters, the country's largest no-kill sanctuary. This work is made possible by the personal and financial support of a grassroots network of supporters and community partners across the nation. For more information visit:

Miniature Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie Scratching Like Crazy!

My 3 year old Yorkie has been scratching
a lot for about 8 weeks now.
She uses her rear legs to scratch her front shoulders.
Food has always remained the same...
I use 2 different high quality shampoos....
Her skin does not "appear" dry or flakey or red.
No fleas.
I tried a couple topicals with no relief...
The vet of course wants $100 to tell me the problem!
So I thought I would ask here, first. For ideas or solutions.
Any thoughts?
