Are Yorkies Loving Dogs?


When we first introduced our 12 week Yorkie to our 10 year old cat, the cat HATED her.  But she still loved him.  And she kept trying to show him love day after day. It took about a good 2 years and the stubborn cat finally gave in. And now they love each so much its unbelievable.

Small in size but big in personality, the Yorkshire Terrier makes a feisty but loving companion.

Whats Foods Should I not Feed My Yorkie

There are lots of foods that are bad for Yorkies. Grapes and raisins probably top the list of foods you should never give dogs. You should  have a basic knowledge of canine nutrition; and, even more importantly, a thorough knowledge of human foods that are harmful to dogs. Some foods which are safe for human consumption can be poisonous for our canine companions.

 Grapes and Raisins (Grapes are dangerous because of an unknown substance which is toxic to dogs – affects canine’s kidneys)

 Avocado (All parts of the avocado and avocado tree are toxic to dogs.)

 Salt, Baking Soda, Baking Powder (In large amounts these can cause an electrolyte imbalance – and severe electrolyte imbalances can lead to muscle spasm or even congestive heart failure.)

 Chocolate (Chocolate contains Theobromine, a compound that is a cardiac stimulant and a diuretic. This can be fatal to dogs.)

 Macadamia Nuts (Macadamia nuts contain an unknown substance that is toxic to dogs.)

 Mushrooms (Mushrooms may contain toxins which could cause liver and kidney damage)

 Onions (Both onions and garlic contain the toxic ingredient Thiosulphate. But onions are more of a danger. Many dog biscuits contain *small* amounts of garlic – garlic contains less of this toxin so huge amounts would need to be consumed to be toxic. And, by the way, this poison builds up the system – it can be toxic in one large dose – or with repeated consumption of small amounts.)

 Sugar-Free Foods (Sugar-free foods containing Xylitol have been found to cause liver failure in some dogs.)

I am sure there are a lot more -  so check with your vet as well.

Are Nuts Safe for my Yorkie?

I started eating almonds recently. I eat a small portion every day. And little Trixie loves to beg for them.

So I looked online  - and discovered dogs have a hard time digesting almonds. And Macadamia nuts can be  DEADLY and some walnuts are not good for dogs.

According to VPI Pet Insurance, walnut poisoning is one of the most common claims for toxic ingestion. The average cost to treat walnut poisoning is $315.74. The average cost to treat an upset stomach, according to VPI’s claims data, is $214.69.

Judge Sim lake is calling the heinous torture freedom of speech . This is an outrage I still cannot believe this is even real that there are psychopaths like this and that our courts are defending the.

Cadillac SRX Week with a Yorkshire Terrier

 So last weekend, my dads were given a brand new Cadillac SRX Luxury Crossover to drive for a week!  Talk about LUXURY!  WOW!

 The 2013 SRX is a daringly distinctive luxury crossover that serves up equal doses of refinement and exhilaration. From its bold exterior design to the subtle elegance of available heated and ventilated seats, the SRX is pure Cadillac.  -  The ventilated seats were very cool - and they give off heat in the winter!

Perhaps even more remarkable is the intuitive technology the SRX offers like the innovative CUE7 ­- Cadillac User Experience driver interface, which leaps two generations ahead - the control panel was super high tech and my dads kept playing with it.

 the convenient available rear-view camera -  my dads loved this feature - especially for parallel parking. 

or the available Bose® surround sound and HD radio.  8 SPEAKERS!  That my dads insisted on cranking up to full volume, hurting my little ears!

It was a couple gorgeous days, driving on the road across the state. We had the moon/sun roof open and it was cool, because the wind did not obstruct the inside sound of the car. And the Bose system will actually adjust for wind noise!

In the back seat, there are 2 DVD players.  8" screen , wireless headphone, and a remote control. So at one point, I watched LADY AND THE TRAMP!

Another cool thing is the glove box is very big  - and divided in 2. The top portion is cooled, so you can keep a sandwhich or drinks in it.
My dad also really loved the blind spot technology. When changing lanes, the mirror blinks, to warn you someone is in your blind spot.

SO MANY COOL things about this car - we REALLY  REALLY  LIKED IT A LOT!

Thanks  GM/ Cadillac!
