Living with a Yorkie is without a doubt a lot of fun. 

Living with more than one Yorkie is even more fun. 

Whether you have one Yorkie or multiple, there are certain realities we must deal with and accept. 

If not, the results can be disastrous!

1. I am Your Child Therefore I come First.

Whether you have human children who’ve already grown up, or have never had kids – the result is exactly the same. 

Your Yorkie knows that they are your child now and you are their parent. 

Whatever you do, put your Yorkie first. 

Thinking of bringing a new spouse home? 

Let your Yorkie know about it. Or there will be heck to pay! 

Oh and don’t even think about bringing home another dog. 

I guess Yorkies will eventually get over it if you bring home another dog but they won’t be too thrilled with the idea. Best to consult them first. 

No exceptions. 

2. Don’t Eat Food and Expect Me Not To Notice.

I don’t know how many times I’ve caught my Yorkie staring at me from obscure angles while I’m about to take a mouthful of food. 

It is as if he’s saying: “By the way I exist and I demand just a little taste.” 

Despite keeping my Yorkies well fed they never seem to be truly full. 

Granted, not all Yorkies are obsessed with food but a lot of them are. 

Always keep a box of treats or their favorite food around the house so when you eat they can eat too, 

And you won’t have to worry about upsetting their digestive systems or feel bad about them just watching you eat!
