So let me be the first to say what I am happy about this year. Of course my 2 grandkids...that's a gimme. I love those kids and they make me a very happy Pawpaw.
And I am happy and thankful for my family...that too is a gimme. What I am also thankful is that we found 5 beautiful homes for our Yorkie puppies. With the economy in the tank, and puppymills popping out cheap dogs we struggled to find homes that we felt suitable for our puppies. After going through a ton of emails and phone calls we found 5 families that met and exceeded our requirements. Why be thankful...if you were a breeder you would understand. When you give birth to puppies they become part of your family..your responsibility. You are in charge of finding and providing them safe, loving homes.
We love all of our dogs, and once they leave us, they are still part of our family. We've been lucky to be able to get emails and photos of our puppies. And we wanted to shave some to uplift your spirits and make you smile. We all can use a smile too.
When you open a email or get a photo and see your puppy older, bigger and loved, you smile. You think about the birth, the many hours spent taking care of them, loving on them, playing with them. Then you find homes for them and they leave...sometimes forever..never seeing them again.
But we are lucky to be able to see our puppies, or get photos, or emails letting us know how they are doing. More smiles and thankfulness, to be relieved that your puppies are safe and loved.
We won't name these dogs or tell ya where they live...we will tell you they are loved, they are safe and they are happy...just look at their faces and you can tell that. For that we are thankful.
Being a small breeder means you have great responsibilities for bringing happiness to families that are looking for a little furry love. To match your puppy with their needs. We had over 600 emails asking about our puppies and took about a 100 phone calls from our ads. Time, lots of time, spent asking questions, finding out about what kind of person is seeking your puppy.
So being thankful about these puppies is very appropriate for Thanksgiving..afterall they are part of our family, and always will be. Our kids know we love them, our families know we love them too. But this is a Yorkie blog, a place to learn and laugh, smile and cry, and tell our love for our Yorkies. So "HAPPY THANKSGIVING" to all, and remember to smile, be thankful and spread a little love this holiday season.
Times have been hard this past year...help uplift someone's spirits and help them smile. Show them a picture of a Yorkie puppy...that always works for us...but we're Yorkie lovers....just look at that face....(: ...go ahead, your face won't break..smile...it's contagious...soon others will be smiling with you. It might even spread like the flu...everyone might be smiling around you..and for that you should be "thankful". Love yourself, love your family and love your pets. HAPPY THANKSGIVING Everyone....I hope your's is as special as our's is.
