Arrival Story:
I fell in love with my best friends' yorkie, and started looking for a breeder. As fate would have it, I found one who had a male who was "retiring" from the show business. I wasn't necessarily looking for that, but it was instant love. He is spoiled rotten, but deserves every bit...he is an angel. He has captured everyone's heart and changed my life forever. He is so loving, a truly beautiful soul.

He was named after Billy Elliot, the movie, by his "birthparents".

A day in the life of Billy Elliot...

Yorkies can swim!

Billy had his first encounter with a lake during my summer vacation this year. Silly me, I really only thought that large dogs, or certain breeds, could swim. Well, Billy proved me wrong. I had purchased a very cute life preserver for him (see kayak photo) so that he could ride in the boats. I had no intention of using it for any other function. However, we got the idea one morning as we were swimming to put him in the life preserver and gently lower him into the water to see what would happen. To our delight, his legs started going before he even hit the water, and he was moving...he was SWIMMING! He seemed somewhat frightened though, so we took him out quickly. Little did we know what a brave boy he is...
The next day I swam out to a raft past the dock. Billy stayed with "Grammy" on the dock to watch. As I swam past where they were standing, Billy started to panic, (I was in water up to my neck) and he literally tried to LEAP off of the dock into the water! After seeing how distressed he was, I swam back towards the shore, and my Mom let him off his leash. He ran full steam ahead into the water and to me. We then realized that he thought I was drowning, or needed help, and was going to risk his life to save me. We were all so touched...yorkies don't know how little they are, and I think that is wonderful.
