It's all about friends!

Let me tell you something about animals. They know how to network! I have made at least 18 new friends since my human started my blog and if you keep in mind that each one of them have at least two humans, that means I can add another 36 humans as well. And then I'm not even counting all the other animals that each of those households have.

I am a very private girl but I will admit, I love inviting all these new friends in my life! I think my human feels a bit more normal now that she has discovered so many other humans who are just as connected to their pets!

I saw something she wrote the other day and thought I'd share that with you.

She said she is really grateful for her 'anyway' friends. Friends that remain her friends anyway, no matter what happens! I really get that. I think that is exactly what all pets are as well. We will remain our humans' friends anyway, no matter what! Perhaps that is one of the reasons why they love us so much!

On that note, let me me introduce you to the rest of my family. Lets start with the other Yorkie in the house. Her name is Chloe and we are the same age. She's a bit camera shy, so this is the best I could get...

I love her to bits but we do constantly battle for a spot on my human's lap. She really makes me mad at times but she remains my friend anyway!

Then there's George the Maltese. He's our alpha male but he has his work cut out for him with two female Yorkies in the house. George is incredibly regal. He doesn't have any pedigree papers like we have but if dogs had kings and queens, George definitely would have been a king of sorts. I really respect him and will always let him eat first, I even allow him to be the leader at times when the humans take us for a walk. :)

Then there's Bacardi. He's also a maltese but he's really been very camera shy lately. I'll get the human to practice her camera skills on him next week. As we're all getting some of our best pictures posted, it's only fair that he also gets to have a nice one as an introduction.

It's scary how much I've become like my human. She also likes things to be just right! Wait a minute, maybe she got all of that from me - we all know by now what a strong personality I have!

I just overheard on the news that the humans are watching on TV, that one third of South Africa's drinking water is contaminated. Even as a non-human, I find that to be a disgustingly sad statistic! I'll have to tell her to fill our drinking bowls with the filtered water that I see them drinking. My stomach is just too sensitive to deal with anything less...

Here's wishing you all a wonderful week!


  1. It is all about friends isn't it!! Thanks for telling us about your family! You have a very nice family! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  6. Thank you for the introduction! Looking forward to meeting Bacardi. :)

  7. hey Abby,

    I was over at Osker's blog and read about you and thought I would paw my way over and say hey! What a super post! Friends rock! And how sweet of you to introduce the rest of your family. You seem to have a very cool family!

    Sorry about the bad water. I don't know what is up with humans not taking care of things like making sure water stays clean. Hopefully they will get that fixed and then you and your humans will yummy clean water!



We LOVE to read comments, thank you so much for taking the time to say hi!
