Muffin

DSC_9021b

My simple pleasure this week is a constant everyday pleasure.  Meet Muffin, our little Yorkshire Terrier.

He looks like a puppy and when we're out walking people always think he is a puppy but he's actually quite an old dog at 12 years old.  He's resting here in his favourite spot, on the back of the armchair which looks out over the street.  He has the sweetest nature you could wish for in a little dog and we love him.  There is not one ounce of aggression in this little chap and that's just as well when my three little grandsons are pestering the life out of him.

Just one other thing people always think little dogs like Muffin are yappy.  Well, that's just not true, not in Muffin's case anyhow.  That's all I just wanted to set the record straight. :-)

Oh, what a sweet little muffin! I'm sure he's glad you set the record straight and let the world know he is NOT a yapper. :)

Have a blessed day!

I'm not a dog person, but Yorkies are so darling! Someone I know got hers as a pup, and I couldn't believe how tiny it was.

He's adorable! That happens to be one of my two favorite types of dogs. The other is a collie.

Great simple pleasure!

He is so cute and he certainly doesn't look 12 years of age.

I love my pets - they truly are a simple pleasure.

Blessings,
