Last year Vicki and Amanda talked me into getting another dog, a Yorkie puppy. I must be a softie, cause I caved. Now we have 2 dogs and a cat, besides the fish we purchased yesterday. Do fish count as pets? You can’t pet them, at least not ours; they’re way too small. However, you can pet Tillie. She is definitely a lap dog. Vera is our other dog, she also is a lap dog; 1/2 Yorkie and 1/2 Schitzu, guess she’s a Shorkie. This is Tillie’s post though, she has grown into an affectionate likeable dog. She does need a trip to the groomer though.
