    The actual yorkie belongs to a friend, but the cartoon drawing is my first try to draw a yorkie. My friend doesnt know that i drew a cartoon of her pup. It will be a surprise prize to her from me. I hope she will like my lil drawing. What do you think of it?

    I can't wait to show it to my friend. I can't now (not yet) but another friend of ours is gonna use this on a quilt that she is making for Axel's mommy. So, once the quilt is ready, we'll show her :D

    I did not own one, but I fostered one yorkshire terrier. He was very active. Had a play drive - lots of it. And lots of energy. He was also so good at learning anything you thought about teaching him. He was confident. Not a shy dog at all. I really loved him so much. Too bad that I could only foster him (not keep him forever). Parents rule :(
    We found him a nice forever home though. He is still a happy boy :)

    sorry...I could not resist <3 Jackson is sure a yorkie whom I love so much. So I tried my hand at drawing him. I was so very quick at it, but I think that this could be Jackson ^_^ (yes, I drew a tail which I so love in this boy. When it wags, it makes me smile. I noticed that it also wags when he swims AWWWWH)

    I love how you capture his little smirk.


    Also, there is no such thing as a "mini yorkie". They're all pretty "mini"!. Some people advertise "teacup yorkies" which are smaller than average, but breeding for those qualities causes serious health risk to the dogs, and nearly all teacup yorkies have health problems of some kind, provided the mother can even deliver the pups safely.

    Thought that would be the deal,I saw this pair the other day and they were very small!They were also 13 years old...so they must have just been normal?They were basically Coco's size...don't know if that's their normal size or not...

    I agree with Milo'sMommy. There isnt a mini, tecup, toy....etc in the breed standard. AKC Breed standard for a yorkie calls for 7lb
    American Kennel Club - Yorkshire Terrier

    Ethical / reputable breeder try to breed within that size. However, you can find a smaller than 7lb and a bigger than 7lb that pop up in a litter of a reputable breeder / just like in any other breed of dog (they are still called yorkies - without the terms that BYB or puppy mills use to sell more). That said, i would much rather dont go looking for super tiny, especially when they are bred by BYB ... Health risk is higher :)

    Love the drawings!

    The yorkie that lives next to us is now about 9 months old and 15 lbs. He's not fat. He wasn't supposed to get that big so surprise!
