The story of Little Big Dog

The history of the Yorkshire Terrier is truly a rags to riches saga. Originally bred as a ratter, the earliest Yorkies were considerably larger than the glamorous little dogs we are familiar with today, but they were working terriers that provided both sanitation and sport for the Scottish weavers who bred them in England's industrial north. Now a world authority on the breed traces her favorite from its humble beginnings to its emergence as the canine epitome of style. In fourteen chapters, the whole story of the Yorkshire is charmingly told. Chapters on origin, history and standard join discussions of puppies, rearing, showing and breeding. Of particular excellence is the chapter on grooming, so essential to the health and beauty of the Yorkie.
