Revisiting Roxie A Cutie Yorkie

Roxie, “I am on guard duty. Do Not Trespass. I mean it!”

Roxie stayed with us for a bit of time, and based on what I wrote in my post about her before this is what I noticed:

  • Hypoallergenic coat – I think so because she did not seem to shed much.
  • Protective, active, loving attention and perfect for grown ups – 100% true. Excellent tiny guard dog, loved to be active, and be the center of attention.
  • Best for adults.
  • Guard dog – Yes! She was always the first one to notice a sound, movement, etc.
  • Separation anxiety – Very little.

Roxie is back with her family, and we miss her dearly, but hopefully we’ll get to see her again in the near future. Enjoy being back home Roxie, and come back any time you want to. Stay safe!

Do You Speak Dog?

I believe that all pet parents speak dog-some are quite fluent while others are just learning-even if you think otherwise. Once we have lived with a dog for a while, we figure out her likes, dislikes, and quirks. In the above picture, all of them are in the traveling mode. Easy to see and figure out.

What do you think about the above picture? Come on, give it a try! They are both alert and relaxed. This is the body language and state of mind that you want to see in your dog. Anyway, dogs do not come with a manual, and even if they did, dogs are individuals so that manual will only get you so far. My advice to you is to enjoy your dog. Celebrate the little victories when you can, and don’t be too hard on her and yourself when she is not at her best behavior. And when you really don’t know what to do with her, hire professional help. Stay safe.

Roxie A Cute Yorkie

Roxie, “Please let me take a nap. Walks, mingling with other dogs and people is exhausting!”

The above cutie pie is Roxie, a Yorkshire Terrier often shortened as Yorkie, who is vacationing with us so I decided to highlight a few of her breed’s traits:

  • A Yorkie’s coat is said to be hypoallergenic
  • Very protective, active, and loving attention makes a Yorkie a great companion for an adult person
  • This breed is better suited for families with children over 10 years old
  • Excellent as a guard dog, yes you read it correctly, because they bark a lot
  • Separation anxiety is common because they were bred to be companion dogs

As days go by, we’ll see about the traits I mentioned in Roxie. Enjoy your weekend!
