Hi Brenda! Our other dogs snored all day and night long...Rosie has the Poodle nose, so maybe we wont be lulled to sleep with snorts and snores!? She also has the Shihtzu tail and teeth...but even so, shes a cutie! I love that your Yorkie is 15...amazing that she has lived so long...but when I read that my heart broke just a little because dogs should live as long as their humans!! Enjoy every precious day! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad

Riiiiiiight...the mister who wakes up when a singular pine needle lands on the roof, has developed the unbelievable ability to sleep through those middle of the night potty trips out into the freezing cold rain! I hope I live through potty training because if I dont our house will become one big toilet and sweet Rosie will starve! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad
