Hi everyone! new here and new to sp! I have 3 Yorkie children,2 boys and a girly girl. I worked for awhile in Yorkie rescue and now I'm on the board of my local animal shelter. We're currently in relocation project and building a new shelter.

My boys I've had since babies, Indy is 11 and diabetic, he gets insulin shots twice a day. I blame myself because when he was diagnosed he weighed 23 pounds and I never read labels and knew there was SO much sugar in doggie treats and foods! He has been diabetic 5 years and doing wonderfully except he has cataracts now :(

Winston, is 6 and my problem child, he isn't the most social and can be a wild card meeting new people but he shows me the most affection of the 3. He is also THE most stubborn bullheaded dog I've ever met when it comes to training! He was banned at 6 months from Petsmart for nipping a groomer.

Muffin I got at age 8 from the Yorkie rescue, I fostered her and no one wanted to adopt her due to her severe allergies, oh yeah she had no hair! She's been tested and treated and grew back her hair but has set backs this time of year and in the fall.

I love my kids and love all dogs and I could talk about them 24 x 7. I have tons of photos and they are spoiled silly!

I look forward to reading about your pets!

Hi, my name is Deb, and while I'm not new to Spark People,I am new to this team. I live in Michigan, and have 3 pets; a black cat named Lili, a 4 year old pug mix name Jake and a 2 year old Rat Terrier named Max ( short for Maxwell Smart ). I am learning to get out everyday and do something with Max (technically my dog ), my husband took care of that until recently. Max does not like the cold, so he requires a wardrobe of sweaters and coats for the cooler months. Jake on the other hand has a thick coat and loves to be outside unless it is very hot. Lili is the typical house cat, she has never gone outside and she is happy that way. We have offered her the chance to go out with us and explore the yard; she refuses. Max is my reason to keep exercising. emoticon

Hi Kathy! Welcome to the Small Dogs, Big Hearts Team! I joined SparkPeople at the beginning of this year and have found the website to be a fountain of information, inspiration and encouragement. My favorite idea from the founder is to start with a goal small enough to accomplish easily and then motivate yourself to further accomplishments through your early success. For me, this is the pressure-free and fun way to move toward health. I hope your experience here is as enjoyable.

Cheers, Debra

P.S. That's our Yorkie, Psycho, with me in my profile pic.

Growing up, my parents had a mixed breed Chihuaha (at least I think she had that in her). We got her from the pound and all they could tell us what she was a mixed breed. Had the "bug" eyes like a Chihuaha though. Miss that dog.

Welcome aboard! When I was growing up, my Aunt and Uncle had a beagle named Bingo. I loved that dog. I love beagles. I have a little chihuahua now. He is quite cute too.

Hey everyone!
I'm so glad I found this board! I love meeting and talking to people that have similiar interests especially with animals. I have no children, as of yet, except my furbaby Daisy. She is a almost 3 year Beagle that I love as much as I would a human child. I look forward to meeting all of you and we discuss our common interest in doggies.
