I just learned last weekend that one of my show acquaintances lost a yorkie this week to a bulldog. The bulldog lived in her home and they have been around each other for months. They are not sure what caused the attack, but this tragedy is real.
I know I have said it before, but be extremely careful around other dogs. PROTECT YOUR LITTLE ONE.


Libbys darling little boys starting to play and give each other kisses. They are 23 days old now and just as cute as of these boys is available due to a change in plans in a previous family. If you are interested in him please contact me. .Enjoy. Holly

Taylor Made Yorkies will have its' second annual yorkie family reunion on June 28th. Last year we all had so much fun playing with the puppies and the food was fabulous. Other than the weather being extremely hot, it was a great success. TMY takes pride in the fact that we want to stay part of your family and cares about the puppies no matter where they go.
Mark your calendars now and I will be sending out the particulars in the near future. Holly

I thought you might enjoy some new pictures of Emma and Sutton's daughters. They are gaining well and Emma is being a great mom. All the pups are in the 11-12 oz range right now. These pups are just adorable and I can't wait for them to open their eyes and start bouncing around. Enjoy! Holly

Emma delivered 3 beautiful little girls just after midnight this morning. We had to ask the assistance of doc Hutchins on the first one as she just was not pushing hard enough. We got up there and suggested we do a section and then he decided to try one more time and was able to pull the puppy out. After that the next two came easily. Mom is resting now and babes are all doing great. The girls weighed in at 5 5/8 oz, 5 oz, and 5 1/2 oz. sooooooooooooo sweet!!! Mom Judy made it down in time to see the last two born. Thanks Sutton for giving us some girls!! Holly

Dr Hutchins offered to re-xray Emma since the other one that we had done could not tell us how many pups for sure. The new x-ray revealed 3 puppies so we are all set now for the delivery. Why do I x-ray? The reason I have them is to ensure a complete delivery. Each delivery is different and too often I have heard horror stories about a retained puppy. The pup will usually die and often the mom will get a serious infection inhibiting her from being able to care for the pups that were born. There is also the possibly of losing the mom as well.
Each delivery takes a different time pattern . We have had them deliver in less than 2 hours but have also experienced 8 hours. Sometimes mom needs a shot of oxytocin which increases the contractions again so that she can continue having the pups. So many things to plan for and to anticipate with the birth of puppies. Many folks just leave it to mother nature but we have had a 98% success rate compared to others who lose many pups and some moms. We go the extra mile here at TMY.

Lib and Sutton's pups are a week old already. It does not seem possible. The bigger boy is the one with his head on top of the smaller pup and the last picture is of the little boy. They are both as fat as little butter balls and both have sweet short cute and doing well. Enjoy! HOlly

This week I received a phone call with the most tragic news. A show friend of mine co-owned a beautiful show male yorkie with her friend. His owner had him out for a walk with 2 other dogs and I believe her grandson. They were approaching or passing a home where the owner and a rottie was. The owner yelled dont worry he wont hurt you...........but before she could pick up her dear dog, the rottie attacked and killed him instantly.
NEVER, NEVER NEVER TRUST A BIG DOG WITH YOUR YORKIE............. This is the second time that I have written about this subject. Big dogs cannot be trusted with little dogs especially if they are strangers. The owners are heartbroken, this was not the first time the rottie has been in trouble and the rottie was to be euthanized ( but now I have learned he was placed in a rehab-rescue of some sort) from what I understand. I have left out many details of this story as it is just too gruesome to put to print............but believe me...........I dont and wont care that people say, "oh you are too protective........oh my dog won't hurt your dog...etc etc. I have always been extremely cautious and protective. I watched an akita attack a full grown husky at a show and pick it off the ground and shake it like it was a ragdoll.......just minutes before this happened this same dog reached onto my table at Key.....and I snatched him up like a baby falling..........and alerted the it!!!!!!! In handling class I am careful not to let the yorkies too near the big dogs even on the go round only takes a second. Please heade the warning.........whether it be daycare, the park, a stroll down the street. Be careful always!!!! Our thoughts are with the family who lost their dear Benny........Holly

UPDATE: Now I understand that the Rottie has been euthanized. I feel really bad about this but given what has happened it is for the best.........


Emma has fit right in here at TMY. Emma is the daughter of Lib and Grady. Although her mom Judy misses her horribly, we both decided it was best that Emma come home to deliver her babies. She is being the perfect girl. Last night as she lay on my tummy when we were watching tv, her little babies were just kicking away. Such a feeling and we are all excited about the delivery which should be in the next few days. Wish Emma a quick and safe delivery and hugs and kisses to mom, Judy! Holly and Emma.

Libby delivered 2 beautiful little boys yesterday morning around 6:30 am. I got up my normal time of 5 am and she was anxious to go I let her out with the other dogs and when I let them all back in Libby......... I called and could not see her so outside I went in jammies and slippers only to find her in the biggest hole she could dig in 10 minutes time!!!LOL. She had found a spot next to the foundation of the house under a tarp that was out there covering the hose reel.......... She was literally covered in black earth and in the house we went.......brushed her off and into the whelping box she went. By the time she delivered she was dry and we were able to wash most of the "bed" off from her. Mother nature and instincts take over even when the Hilton awaits.........LOL
She delivered 2 gorgeous little boys within a half hour and everyone is doing great. Weighing in at 6 5/8 and 4 1/4.........Lib in an attentive mom and the little squeeks from the boys again fill the TMY household. Such a happy time!!!!!!!!! Holly

Check out that belly..........oh my Miss Emma Mae!!!!. X-ray is in but we are not positive..........4 maybe 5. Emma comes to TMY tomorrow and we have the nursery all set up for her.........we are all so excited. Emma and Sutton should have some nice babies..........we will keep all of you posted.

Libby is still hanging signs of labor and looks like she is in no hurry.........LOL. HOlly

We are still impatiently waiting for Lib to deliver. She was nesting a bit last night and her temp has dropped so hopefully we will see some action in the day or so.

On another note, showing this weekend was not as productive either. The cold and rain hampered our performance and the dogs were miserable. Oh well..........another time. I do want to thank Robyn who showed Key for me and helped me every step of the way........karen who held dogs and kept them as warm as possible and Abbey who did the final touches on Lucy for me. I could have not done it without you!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much. Holly
