Love A proper introduction from a Newbie

Hi everyone! After the "grape" crisis has been averted with my precious, tiny little boy Bailey last week, I thought that I would properly introduce myself and my babies! =)

My name is Kymm and I am a proud Mommie to Bonzai who will be 9 in June, Delaynie who will be 4 in November, and my little Bailey who will be 12 weeks this Saturday (the 25th). I have always wanted a Yorkie, but being a single mom (back then) our budget didn't allow for me to buy my dream breed! I met some new friends, through some classes I was taking, and they both had Yorkies and I was officially smitten. One friend had the mom and my other friend owned the dad (now my Bonzai) and they had one litter of puppies together. They each kept a puppy from the litter - and that is how it was when I met them! A big bunch of Yorkie family love! Well, to make a long story short, my friend's boyfriend was quite a jerk, and decided one day that he didn't want Bonzai any longer because he was marking in the house. (*Of course the boyfriend was also potting "house plants" with outside soil and I honestly think it really confused him). Anyway - he instructed him to take Bonzai to the pound! THE POUND!!! OMGosh, I was heartbroken. I told her I would take him in a heartbeat and her boyfriend agreed. So - I got my first special Yorkie blessing! He has some issues with a very sensitive stomach and bad teeth (since they didn't have any dental care done early on), but he is a sweet, loyal, beautiful Mommie's boy! That was six years ago this month! My how time flies. . . .

Fast forward to this past March. A friend of mine knew how much I wanted another Yorkie. And he works with their local animal control trying to re-home dogs as they come in. His speciality is working with Pitbulls but he had always said he would keep his ears open if they had a Yorkie to re-home. I really in my heart wanted a puppy, since I missed out on Bonzai's puppyhood - but also have a special place in my heart for dogs who just need a home and love! So I got a text message asking me if I still wanted "a friend for Bonazai". I told him YES. He said he might have a situation coming up and would keep me posted. Well it turns out he had come across an owner surrender. It was a 3 year old Yorkie female. I was excited to have a little Princess come and join our family. We had made arrangements to drive halfway (we are 8 hours apart) to meet them for the weekend and bring home our little girl. Well. . . the night before we were to leave, he called and asked me how I would feel about taking a puppy as well. WHAT!?! I asked for details. Apparently my Princess, Delaynie, had recently had a litter of puppies. They were all gone to new homes (WAY WAY WAY to early) but had one left. I told him of course I would take him!! Enter on the scene my littlest Prince - Bailey. He was just barely 5 weeks old when we brought him and Delaynie home. She really didn't show much interest in nursing him so we set about bottle feeding him and taking care of him around the clock. I could not believe how tiny he was. A little ball of fluff. As I said he will be 12 weeks - three whole months old on Saturday and we are just so blessed with all our babies. So . . . .literally my prayers were answered and I was blessed with not one, but three Yorkies, and I even got my puppy along the way. I know that it could not have worked out more perfectly and that they were meant to be part of our family!!! They are SLIGHTLY spoiled (as I am sure all of you know is very easy to do)! So if I have random puppy care questions regarding this little guy, please bear with me. I know it will seem weird to have questions, but although I have three Yorkies this is my first puppyhood adventure. =) So brace yourselves. . . i have a LOT of questions!

So very glad I found this group!!!

Blessings,

Kymm, Bonzai, Delaynie & Bonzai

The boyfriend would be the first to get the boot, and not one of my fur-kids...........nosireee. Welcome to YT. How wonderful you stepped up to the plate for that little man. I know he must be one happy little boy now since he's out of a home like that.
Poor little Delaynie was probably too traumatized to keep nursing her little babies. Sounds like she was in a bad situation as well. How does she like her baby Bailey? Does she have an interest in him? It's always so helpful that the babies and moms bond because she teaches so much.
Fire away with any questions. Lots of very knowledgeable folks on here. Hope you post picture of your trio soon.

Thank you all so much for the welcome and for enjoying our special story!

As for Ms. Delaynie. . . I think she was treated very roughly. She is very mild mannered and unsure still, but such a little love bug. She wants to be in my lap all the time! =) She interacts okay with Bailey now. She is tolerant of his puppy antics and seems to be patient with him. But i would say that their relationship is not so much a mother/son. It's like she was confused by coming here that she kind of let me take care of him. We would put them together often to see if she had any interest in nursing and neither of them did. =( But she will always go "check" on Bai when he is out playing with all of us or in his pen for unsupervised play. I kind of feel like she knew that he was okay and being taken care of so she just let us do it. Bailey is very bonded with me and knows that I am always going to feed him and take care of him. Delaynie is very, very sweet and often gets startled if my daughter and I are talking loudly or yelling from room to room. But I think she is adjusting nicely and knows that she is loved and is beginning to relax more. =) I posted some pics of my trio on the photo board. I think the title of the post is My Babies. and there are pics of each of them separately but here is the link to one of them all together. It was my FB cover! =) Love these babies!!!

Welcome. Such a heart warming story of how your Yorkie family came to be. They are all so cute. You are an angel for taking them all in. It sounds like they are all getting properly spoiled as they should!

What a very special story, they are so lucky to have you and your love and care, I'm sure they will repay you folds over. I love the picture of all 3 together that's so cute. I think it's really special for the mammy to see her pup grow up, Molly's emotions were all over the place for a while after she had the pups, she was just a shadow of herself, but pleased to say after a few months she was completely back to herself, she is now very similar in that she will leave the "looking after" bit to me, but she still likes to know where and what Mickey is up to.
