I wrote this post to explain why Yorkies are more then just a “rat” dog. I got my Yorkie when I was a senior in high school. I’ll admit that I was upset when my parents wanted a Yorkshire Terrier instead of a Husky, which is what I wanted. The day we picked Harlie up I immediately fell in love. I continue to do so everyday, she is the best dog I could ever ask for, and I will always own a Yorkie. Here are 5 reasons why.
1. Yorkies are so beautiful, and always adorable. I call Harlie my forever puppy. She’s 3 years old and people still think that she is a baby. They are often so surprised when I tell them that she is fully grown
2. Yorkies love to cuddle and love. Harlie is the best chill dog ever. We call her the chill dog because she loves to just lay around and hang out with you and snuggle, she actually sleeps in longer then I do most days. She doesn’t hardly ever bark either. She didn’t make a sound the 1st year that we had her!
3. Yorkies are adventurous. Harlie and I have been on many adventures. Mountain biking, boating, canoeing, hiking, floating the river, you name it she’ll do it with me. Most the time I just strap her in my backpack with her head popping out and she is good to go!
4. Harlie has the biggest personality ever to come out of such a tiny little body. She knows how to get your attention, gets pissed when you don’t go to bed with her on time, and will do her best to protect you from anything and everything no matter how many times bigger it is then her.
Don’t judge a dog by its size. Not all small dogs are yip yap dogs that are hyperactive 24/7. Give Yorkies a chance and you’ll find your best friend.
