Quote from: Diasi on September 19, 2023, 11:12:23 AMThanks Mike, your word 'link' is the best way to describe it.Since my wife & I didn't have any children between us, our Yorkies & cats were like children to us.The Yorkies are extra special insomuch as they were with us from the very start.Anyway, some positive news is that I've found out why our Yorkie stopped eating & seemed to be losing her spark.She has lost quite a few of her teeth, which the vet said wasn't a problem, & health wise it isn't. However, it did mean that she couldn't pick up her food from her deep doggie bowl so she was wanting to eat but couldn't get the food into her mouth & then gave up trying.She must have been really frustrated that she couldn't eat her food but neither could she tell me why she couldn't.So once I realised I now cut up her soft pouch food & put it on very shallow dinner plate so that she can use her tongue to push it into her mouth & she's now eating again & she's got the spark back.I dread to think what could have happened if I hadn't twigged what the problem was.

Quote from: Cassandra on September 19, 2023, 10:57:49 PMThanks Phil, I'm really so glad your little one is now OK. They (Yorks & Biewers) are such tough little creatures that when they're 'offside' they tolerate discomfort with such stoic application that they can kid you into thinking they're OK when in fact they have such small constitutions, the reverse can apply.I got her from a very eccentric lady breeder. She was German National Puppy outright champion, but grew up too small to breed, or show. So eventually she gratefully accepted my offer to buy her. She is truly tiny, but thankfully not by in-breeding, just the luck of the draw. So she's always been very healthy, apart from her dental loss (es) and my they do pack a lot of teeth for such small dogs!They get to mean everything I've found as I know you feel towards yours too.
