For the eyes. For the heart. For the ears. For the feet. For the soul.

Hit the road Jack!

Below you will find a poem I found on the internet about Yorkshire Terriers. Our dog Jack, is a mix of Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle, so he is referred to as a "Yorkie-Poo." He is insanely hyper, adorably cute and a protector of his domain and owners. We love you Jack! (And our kitty Aerial too)

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 God 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 at night

Or danger is at hand,

He makes more of a racket

Than a fifty piece brass band

P.S. Sometimes, when Jack is acting like a monster, chewing our shoes, eating the paint off the walls or not listening, we threatingly sing this song to him (all in fun of course.)
