    21 Reasons Why You Should Never Own A Yorkshire Terrier

    Warning: Yorkies will change your life.

    1. This adorable little thing you see here is a Yorkshire Terrier, and it is the worst thing that will ever happen to you.

    (And yes, it's a secret but don't tell anyone: they're just as sweet as they look.)

    2. They're a huge problem, because they steal everything: your socks, your whole heart, etc.

    Sure, they'll take your socks to play with for a few short minutes and eventually you'll get them back. But your heart? That they'll never give back.

    3. They're always sticking out their tongues, especially when they're out in public. 🐶👅.

    Rude.

    4. And they're CREEPS! They're always spying on people and finding secret little places to observe what's going on.

    Also, they don't even realize how tiny they are, so basically they think they can take care of you and your house.

    5. They NEVER leave you alone! What's worse, if they see that you're sad and want to be left alone, they'll go out of their way to give you love and companionship.

    6. Although sometimes they're so independent it's scary.

    Also, they're terrible drivers.

    7. They're constantly curling up and hiding away in little nooks and crannies.

    Obviously you'll want to smother it with kisses when you turn around and see it curled up like a donut, but good luck trying to find them when they're this small and adorable and tucked away.

    8. And just look how menacing they are when they're sleeping.

    With their little squiggle eyes. The cutest thing in the whole world, but don't let that fool you!

    9. They take better photos than you do.

    Such a problem. Their photos get millions of likes on Instagram and Facebook. You can't even get more than a few.

    10. And they won't ever let you get any work done. It's like they're TRYING to grind the economy to a halt.

    11. And even when you can't sleep, and your back hurts, and you're tired and achy... they can get comfortable wherever they go.

    ESPECIALLY if it's a place that's close to you.

    12. And they don't understand anything.

    @tinkerbelletheyorkie / Via instagram.com

    Whenever they're confused, they give you this look.

    13. And they know what look to give you when they want something from you.

    @charlie_and_thor / Via instagram.com

    Manipulative little devils. Each of their little faces gets them what they want: for you to love them more and more.

    14. They're bed hogs.

    @charlie_and_thor / Via instagram.com

    Comfort is part of their being.

    15. When when it's windy, they look ridiculous.

    @lilmorkiebru / Via instagram.com

    Imagine Chewbacca in a rainstorm...something like that.

    16. Need more reasons not to own a Yorkshire? They are too loving.

    @crisarlo / Via instagram.com

    You give them affection, and they give you infinite love no matter what.

    17. And because of their beautiful long hair, you can give them a little ponytail, and they'll look better than you or anyone you know.

    @oaoa0605 / Via instagram.com

    They're flirtatious.

    18. They're really needy. You can't go anywhere without them.

    @yorkieheaven / Via instagram.com

    They even fit in your purse. Of course, not all of them are so calm, some are little earthquakes... but they have a good a time when you take them for a walk.

    .

    19. And if you ever scratch them on the belly? There goes the rest of your day.

    20. We warn you once again: You should NOT get a Yorkie.

    Who would want something so loving and good looking as a best friend? WHO?

    21. Don't get a Yorkie if you want a faithful friend, who will be by your side when you're sad, and that will make you happy every day of your life.

    In fact, don't get any dog if you don't like love, solidarity and loyalty.
