My Neurotic Yorkies

My Neurotic Yorkies

It's been a while since I've posted anything!  (I suppose I've been too busy micro-blogging on Twitter and Facebook to spend any time writing longer posts.)

Anyway, this post is about my two Yorkies.  My kids think I love the dogs more than them.  Sometimes I let the kids think this is true.  Sometimes it might actually be true!  They are definitely a blessing in my life.  Which is crazy.  Because they are also one of my greatest annoyances.   Ironic.  Just like human babies.

Ellie and Georgie are sisters from the same litter.  They are four years old now and pretty set in their ways.   According to Cesar Millan WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WRONG!  These dogs even have their own facebook pages.  Here's Georgie.  Here's Ellie.

Georgie is a diva who demands constant attention.  If you pet her, you better be prepared to keep doing it.  And if you leave the house for a minute, be prepared to be barked at as if you'd been gone for days.  Georgie is fat and pliable and wonderful to cuddle.  But if you are a 180 pound Mastiff beware.  Georgie has little dog syndrome and will attack you for no reason.  She also seems to think you don't exist when she can't see you.  (We say she's as few fries short of a happy meal.)  See video below to prove it.  

Ellie is wiry and lean.  She's always pacing.  She's super smart--learns tricks way easier than Georgie but she's afraid of everything.  Ellie is even afraid of the ripples that water makes when you lick it in the bowl--it's so scary to her that she'll go all day without drinking and then beg to drink from your human cup when you sit down at night.  Apparently the human cup shields her eyes so she can't see the scary ripples.  This not-drinking-water issue has recently caused her to have urological issues.  It was a recent visit to the animal hospital that led our veterinarian to prescribe Ellie Xanax for her anxieties.  (She simply cannot go all day without drinking.)  We filled the specially compounded beef flavored Xanax prescription at Flourish Pharmacy for $38.00 and are hoping it begins to work. 

But, unfortunately, Ellie has a new phobia we just discovered today.  We recently re-tiled one of our bathrooms.  Until now, all the floors in our home have been light colored.  But this is a deep chocolate brown.  And Ellie won't walk on it.  View the video below to see her phobia in action.  We have no idea why she refuses to enter this room.

Awwww SO cute!!! Makes me want another one! We got Lucy from a rcseue that saved her from the Downey Pound, and Oh, the stories they had made me cry. If you ever do get another one, the rcseues charge to pay for the spaying and shots TOTALLY worth the money! So happy for you!

When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer,
it's got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted
to give you a quick heads up! Besides that,
fantastic website!
