BREEDERS PRAYER

You'll love your little puppy, she'll make your house a home.
She'll be your very best friend, you'll never feel alone.
She'll make you smile, she'll make you laugh,
She'll fill your heart with love.......

Did she come from a breeder or did she fall from heaven above?

If you've never been a breeder or seen life through their eyes
as you hold your little puppy, please don't criticize. 
You don't know of all the anguish and the times that bring such pain.
When we lose the battle with a little one and the tears flow like rain.


Sometimes we sit the whole night through waiting for babies to be  born.
Oh the stress and trepidation when they're still not here by dawn. 
Or the panic of holding a tiny baby in our hands
who weighs but 60 grams

Do I do this instead of that or that instead of this?
Alone we fight and hope we won't give him his last little kiss.
We pray he'll live to bring some joy and make a house a home
We know it's up to us and we fight this fight alone.

Formula, bottles, heating pads, we have to get it right
Two hour feedings for this tiny guy thoughout the day and night.
In our hearts we know we are probably going to lose this epic fight
but we keep trying to save him because God willing we just might

Day one he's in there fighting; we say a silent prayer
Day two & three he's doing well, with lots of love and care
Day four & five.....he's still alive, our hopes soar to Heaven
Day six he slips away again, dies in our hands day seven.

We take this little angel and bury him alone:
With aching heart and burning tears and an exhausted groan
We ask ourselves "Why do this?  Why suffer all this grief?
To help them live to grow up strong is such a great relief.

So when you think of breeders and label them with "GREED". 
If you have a healthy puppy it's cause they filled his every need.. 
When you buy a puppy, and with your precious dollars part,
You only pay with money.........we pay with a piece of our heart.

           Please take the time to read it, I know you will love it also.
                                    And it is oh so very true.
                       Thank you for stopping by.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to my little home on the web.                            So please stop by again.
            Thank You Donna & The Dazzling Yorkies!

           What Is A Pet?

A pet is such a special friend,
A friend in many ways.
Sharing love and companionship,
Just looking for your praise.
The clever things they often do
Bring a smile to your face;
And so to them I dedicate,
This small but special place...

                              Why own a dog?

There's a danger you know,You can't own just one, for the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive, wherein lies the danger.
While living with lots, you'll grow poorer and stranger.
One dog is no trouble, and two are so funny.The third one is easy, the fourth one's    a honey.The fifth one's delightful, the sixth one's a breeze,
You find you can live with a houseful of ease.

So how 'bout another? Would you really dare?They're really quite easy but, oh, Lord the hair! With dogs on the sofa and dogs on the bed,And crates in the kitchen, it's no bother,  you've said.They're really no trouble, their manners are great.
What's one more dog and just one more crate?

The sofa is hairy, the windows are crusty,The floor is all footprints, the furniture      all dusty.The housekeeping suffers, but what do you care? Who minds a few noseprints and a little more hair? So let's keep a puppy, you can always find room,
And a little more time for the dust cloth and broom.

There's hardly a limit to the dogs you can add, The thought of a cutback sure makes you sad.  Each one is so special, so useful, so funny.
The vet and food bills grows larger, you owe BIG money.

Your folks never visit, few friends come to stay,Except other "dog folks" who live       the same way.Your lawn has now died, and your shrubs are dead too,
But your weekends are busy, you're off with your crew.

There's dog food and vitamins, training and shots.And entries and travel and motels which cost lots.Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?Then that favorite one comes and climbs in your lap.His look says you're special and       you know that you will Keep all of the critters in spite of the bill.

Some just for showing and some just to breed.And some just for loving, they all fill a need.God, winter's a hassle, the dogs hate it too.But they must have their walks though they're numb and your blue.Late evening is awful, you scream and you          shoutAt the dogs on the sofa who refuse to go out.

The dogs and the dog shows, the travel, the thrills,The work and the worry, the pressure, the bills.The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life.They're charming and funny and offset the strife.Your life-style has changed. Things won't be the same.Yes, those dogs are addictive and so is the dog game.

   MY DOGS LIVE HERE


My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
you don't like pets, be on your way.
they share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,
they will alert you're at the door.
they may request a little pat,
a simple "no" will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say
"just how is it you live this way?
they smell, they shed, they're in the way.."
WHO ASKED YOU? is all I can say..

They love me more than anyone,
my voice is like the rising sun,
they merely have to hear me say
"C'mon girls, time to go and play"

then tails wag and faces grin,
they bounce and hop and make a din.
They never say "no time for you",
they're always there, to GO and DO.

and if I'm sad? They're by my side
and if I'm mad? they circle wide
and if I laugh, they laugh with me
they understand, they always see.

so once again, I say to you
come visit me, but know this too..
My dogs live here, they're here to stay.
you don't like pets, be on your way.
they share my home, my food, my space
this is their home, this is their place..

The Yorkshire Terrier


There are many little terrier dogs
Of every size and hue,
But the one I'd like to mention here
Is shaded tan and blue.

He's a cocky little devil
And he isn't any saint,
But a sappy little lap-dog
Is the very thing he ain't!

He struts along the garden path
His eyes boot-button bright,
And heaven help any straying cat
That comes into his sight.

His owners fear no burglars
For every sound he hears,
The softest, quietest footsteps
Will not pass his pricked up ears.

And if he is disturbed late at night
Or if danger is at hand,
He makes more of a racket
Than a fifty piece brass band!

A little Yorkie just seems to know,
In this castle he's the king!
But, nothing else can match the joy,
That this tiny pup can bring!

But, beware! There's danger here,
What I tell you is oh, so true.....
You'll love your little Yorkie so,
You'll soon be wanting two!

                                                                        “Just a dog”

This is worth remembering always - and never to be forgotten. Why we are here in this "crazy Dog world" - and it explains in a simple way why we are "dog lovers"... Just saw it on some posts this morning - but it's worth to share again and again. And to reflect upon each time we tend to fail to remember....
"“From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a dog”, or, “that’s a lot of money for just a dog”. They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for “just a dog”. Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog”. Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a dog”, but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a dog” and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “just a dog” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you, too, think it’s “just a dog”, then you will probably understand phases like “just a friend”, “just a sunrise”, or “just a promise”. “Just a dog” brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. “Just a dog” brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of “just a dog” I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a dog” but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. “Just a dog” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it’s not “just a dog” but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a human.” So the next time you hear the phrase “just a dog”, just smile, because they “just don’t understand”
