Sandy, at Soaring Through Second, is having a Furry Friends Linky Party and Giveaway. I love my furry friends (and everyone else's, too) so I am definitely going to take advantage of this party! If you would like to link up, too, please click on the image below.
I am proudly owned by two of the cutest yorkies. This is Max:
I rescued him when he was 11 months old. He just turned 9 last month. Sadly, he was neglected and abused by his first family. They paid a lot of money for him at a puppy
mill store and then they just left him outside, tied up, in the hot Florida sun. A neighbor witnessed this neglect and abuse and told me about it because she knew I loved animals and would do something about it. She stole got the dog for me and I've been owned my him ever since. He had double sets of teeth, a tape worm, fleas, and only weighed 3 pounds. After a week with me, he doubled his body weight. He is one of the cutest little yorkies I have ever seen. Unfortunately, I was never able to housebreak him (and I am really good at it!) He thinks my entire house is his toilet. He is also shy around strangers and very protective of me. I can't really trust him all the time with other people. But, they understand that it is because all he went through in the first 11 months of his life. He has some medical issues and had to have bladder stones removed. That was a tough surgery and he had to stay at the hospital for 3 nights. His recovery was a little longer than most. Everyone loved him and I think he was held the whole time! Here are a few more pics of my little Maxie:
Then, there's Buddy. He's my big boned yorkie, weighing it at 9 pounds. Poor guy tore his ACL last summer and had to have surgery. His recovery was really long, but he is doing very well now. I don't allow him to jump anymore and, at almost 10 years old, he is a bit stiff. But he is a LOVE! Check him out:
Yup, he loves to hide from the camera. He is a little stinker.
He also loves to put his paws on your face and plant big, wet, juicy kisses!
But, his favorite thing to do is sleep in Max's little bed.
I think the next picture sums them up really well:
So, what have I learned from Buddy and Max. A lot! I have learned to..
