11 Things Only Yorkshire Terrier Owners Understand

You’re constantly forcing a smile when someone says, “Wow, she must be ferocious!” while out on a walk.

Your dog was taught at an early age to get used to being picked up, riding in a purse, wearing outfits and bows, and getting attention from strangers.

Your baby is growing up!
