Default Re: A Yorkie Story

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts, love and sympathy. I came back on here tonight thinking I could finally make this post without having a very wet face - but I can't. Clyde was a very special little chap and every time I see a Yorkie it seems to bring either Clyde or his brother Rusty back to me.

But we have to continue without our beloved chums, and 5 weeks after losing Clyde we found ourselves at a rescue centre - ostensibly taking a box of doggy toys, lead, harnesses, beds etc. I like to think that it was Clyde's way of leading us to Eva. She is a 2 year old yellow labrador/German shepherd/goodness knows what else cross. She was in the middle of a phantom pregnancy, very hormonal but there was something about her that we fell in love with. After going through the rescue centre's lengthy adoption procedure she finally came to us for her forever home on 20 December. She has now been spayed and has fully recovered. As you can imagine, she couldn't be more different than Clyde, although we've had several labs in the past. But I think that is good. One dog never replaces one you've lost, but they do find a different corner of your heart to inhabit, to say nothing of your sofa! and Eva has certainly done that. We are getting used to being cuddled by 21kg of youthful energy.

I will still drop in here from time to time to keep up to date with you all, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being who you are. xx

It's lovely to hear about Eva. I'm sure she'll bring you lots of joy while also being completely different to your Yorkie boys. You might find you need a bigger sofa...
