This is my son's dog Allie, on the right, with her two miniscule best friends. (The little ones belong to his cousin.) The dorkie tan one on the left is Charlie. I'm not dissing Charlie here; that's his breed--he's a Dachshund/Yorkie hybrid: a Dorkie. I think Charlie is Allie's boyfriend.
And the one in the middle is not a Beanie Baby; it's a real dog. That's Buckley, and he's a pure-bred Yorkie. I don't think we could ever have a dog that small in our house, because there's a very real possibility that he would be crushed by one of the size 12 or 13 feet that roam around here.
Believe it or not, Allie is sort of afraid of Buckley. Allie is a bit of a scaredy-cat.
You may not be a dog-lover, but c'mon, you have to admit: this is a pretty cute picture.
