Arrival Story:
I was looking for a yorkie/yorkie mix without the price. I went to a spine clinic and mentioned to the receptionist and her reply was " I have the dog for you" . Cork was her Mom and Grandma's dog, they purchased him as a pup. They moved to a facilty where it would be difficult to care for him plus Mom developed medical problems so Cork was taken in by the daughter. She works each day and Cork really needs attention. The receptionist saw how much I love my cat( I brought in my "brag book" of cat pics and can go on about my Dustie-girl,, ) she felt that God had brought us together to ,#one, get my back fixed and #two , to give Corkie a new Mom and Dad and Dustie a brother. I took him in 'on trial' while receptionist and her family went on vacation( she knew what she was doing,, that I could not resist that scruffy terrier face,, ! ) to make sure it would not upset my kitty in an irreversable way( Dustie is 14 yo, cancer survivor and a diabetic ). That was October 14th 2005. Now you know the rest of the story!! I just could NOT imagine letting him go back now! And, I have had only big dogs while I was growing up... so this lil guy just stole my heart. He got to my husband too, who was opposed to getting a dog. Now, that man says 'bye sweet boy' and kisses the dog and just waves to me!! He loves my husband, they take special walks together, but , he is a mama's boy,, Dad is 'toast' when Mom is around!!

I live in Virginia. I do not know any one else with a silky. I am looking for all the help/advice I can get!
