I came across this site via Wikipedia while doing some comparisons/differences between yorkies and silky terriers.
It’s the story of a yorkie who was acquired during World War II and how she became honored. I couldn’t resist ordering a copy of the book Yorkie Doodle Dandy myself and thought other yorkie lovers would be interested. Our first two yorkies were truly yorkies - only 6 lbs. each. Our current yorkie may bave been misidentified because his personality more fits the silky description as well as his physical attributes - he weighs 14 lbs. Either way, they are TERRIBLY cute and sweet dogs that steal your heart completely.
