We adopted a 14-month-old Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle mix “puppy” last week named “Diamond”.
She was my husband’s cousin’s dog, but her life just got a little hectic with a change in work and a newborn baby that she felt she couldn’t give Diamond the attention and care she deserves.
So, she asked us to “babysit” her for a while – I’m sure that she knew we’d fall in love and the rest is history.
Since all of our dogs’ names start with the letter “K”, we slightly renamed her with an official name of “Karat Diamond”, but we still call her Diamond!
With her silky, curly black hair and a white diamond on her chest, it’s a strange result from crossing a Yorkie and a Poodle together. Poodles are often one color and Yorkie’s are always a combination of black and tan or blue and tan.
She’s definitely a terrier, almost resembling a miniature schnauzer in the face, just like our other 3 babies. However, she is also very poodle with her long legs!
Diamond is so playful, as puppies should be and she is a sweet surprise for our terrier-loving household.
She has not yet met her brother and sisters, but she will next week – and I know she’ll be so excited to have so much action going on all the time. Plus, my mother’s 2 terriers will also help with the dog pack babysitting!
Check out our first video of Diamond:
I guess my Mom’s “baby”, Precious, won’t be the baby anymore! Even though she’s just over 2 years old, she still acts like and wants to be the BABY!
However, when it comes to puppies, other little animals like our hedgehogs and the like, she likes to take over and herd the rest of our little pack away so she can be in charge and take care of them. Too cute!
Really, I think Diamond and Precious will make a sweet friendship as Diamond really resembles her in the face with her cute, floppy ears, beautiful puppy-dog eyes and similar coloration.
We’re very excited to introduce Diamond to Sugar, Kaptain, Knosey, Kurious, Precious and especially, her new Grandma – my Mom!
