thank you to all our sweet friends who helped my itty bitty angel get dog of the day.. we love you and you have been out "ROCK" during all the really rough times over the past several years.. we would not be here..litterally..if it was not for you all.. xoxoxo april 18, 2013: It is still a very difficult day here.. Time will not heal my wound for Sprinkles. It all began early Thursday morning when I had gotten up a little after 5 am because Secret was still sick. After cleaning her up, I knew I really had a lot of stuff to do this week before we left for Missouri....So I looked over at Sprinkles, who was sleeping on her little pink velour heats and reached down and woke her up.. I groomed her, trimmed her nails, gave her a bath and tried to feed her a few time before I left for work.. She was interested, but she wasn't... So i got all my stuff together and had gone outside a little earlier so the garage door was already open and the door "light" had timed itself off when I opened the door to go to my car. I never saw her run past me. I never saw her as I was driving off for another day of work. Apparently she had darted out the door as I went out and she was so tiny and so black that she just slipped past me unobserved. I drove away not knowing Sprinkles was outside her safe zone that I have worked so very hard to build for her. When I came home and immediately, as always, went to check on her, I found she was no where to be found. I was panicking..Not knowing where she was.. I looked every where many times in the house, in the yard, and then searching the neighborhood. I was so lucky to have so many close friends show up to help me look for her. As we were really getting into a thorough search, one of my neighbors out of my culdesac told me he had seen a small black dog with silky hair. She was laying in the road and was dead. When I went to where he pointed where she was, there was a lot of blood... I was devastated. Her little body apparently had been picked up by the trash man and she was chucked into the garbage and gone for me forever. How heartbreaking. She deserved so much more and I feel that if I had NOT have met such a horrific demise... Was she terrified? Did she KNOW what was happening? Did she even SEE whatever it was that ran over her?? I cannot believe I let her down and it will always be MY OWN personal Hell in my heart knowing she would still be here with me safe and sound if I hadn't strayed from my routine and I had not deemed myself so busy that I needed to get a jump on doing the pups' groomings and make some more time for other things to try and shove into my eternally busy life... Anyway.. this is what I will always know and feel...I never thought I would ever be free of sorrow and loss for the untimely death of my brother, but this is something that had ripped my heart out and I will never overcome it.. Sprinkles passed away April 18, 2013.

Age: 16
Weight: 10 lbs. or less

Education: a-team resident artist! :) >>>I have never had real model training, but I am the main inspiration of most of my Mom's Yorkshire terrier paintings. I am her ultimate super model of the tiny dog world! I was DOTD on my birthday, 8/13/07! and DOTW for the week of Aug 19- !! :) thank you to everyone who helped me make these two wonderfully special accomplishments!>>and i am a member of the AARD since 08/06! kewl, huh?
My pet peeves: I am NOT fond of having one of my pup sisters stealing my ball, and I definitely get ticked off when Sugar or Secret try and lay on MY prize cow bed! Tresspassers beware!
My hobbies: I am a Yorkie on the go! in fact, I AM THE AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD OF YORKIES! you don't leave home without me~ I love shopping.. like a mystery shopper, you could say, hiding in my carrier (I have 3 puchi bags!) and there has not been a store where I didn't have to be a "secret shopper" in, that everyone didn't make me blush from all of the attention I attract!MY next fun thing I love is to be ON CRACK!I mean balls...under this crack, thru that crack! anywhere I can stick my beloved ball... between the sofa cushion cracks! I am like a race horse out of the gate when the phone rings! AND SHE'S OFF! Mom runs for the phone, I run for the ball, and the game of crack begins! And I am not bashful about yipping at Mom to come and get My ball out of whichever crack the ball was lucky enough to be shoved into!
My favorite hang out spot? I love to sit on the swing with Mom outside in our backyard. Swinging our evening away after Mom gets home from work. Other than that, I adore my cow bed, although it has been known to be moved into another room by my pup sisters, Secret and Sugar! Who knows if I was still on my cow or not when it was moved!! The girls aren't saying!
My favorite grub: Royal Canin is my food of choice. I just love the flavor.
My favorite treat: I am also very fond of Nutro puppy drumsticks. I come a runnin' when I hear the treat jar open. I also enjoy chicken jerky from time to time. Mom breaks off the softest part for me now, as i am getting a little older, I need Mom to do little things like that for me.
My favorite tricks: I am a self sufficient little gal.. and I love to dance with delight and have you tap my butt with your toes when I am feeling frisky. I don't know where I got this antic from, but it is definitely worth the tapping of my butt to see me do my dance!
What I love about my owner: My mom tries to always put me first. Even though I now have 2 other sisters, I am the one who gets asked to go shopping and out on drives with the top down and i get my nails painted to match my mom's, and all of the sparkly barrettes any spoiled little yorkie could ask for!
Motto me me me! it's all about me!Never let the world see you without a sparkle in your eyes, on your head, around your neck, and on your toenails! god bless our friends who have passed to the rainbow bridge.. i have a handsom beau! ozzy~~! see his pic below! he is the one with the cute reindeer antlers! >>i was born 8/13/1999! :)
