Introducing Ramsey...

September 30th, 2009 at 10:33 am

We added a new member to our family in March. His name is Ramsey and he has really livened up our household. He's a 4-pound Yorkshire Terrier. When we got him he was only 1.6 pounds, so he's really filled out since then!



I have always wanted a Yorkie and so when DS#3's girlfriend's dog had puppies and they said they'd only charge us half-price, I started saving my blow money. Slowly, but surely, it added up until I had just enough by the time the puppies were ready to come home.

I couldn't make up my mind which of them I wanted. There were 2 girls and a boy in the litter. I was pretty sure I wanted a girl, but which one? On the way home from church one night DS#3 mentioned that he really liked the boy puppy and if we didn't take him, his girlfriend's parents were going to keep him just because he was so lovable. I told him that I didn't have a name for a boy though. I had a couple of names picked out for a girl. DH replied that I should name him Dave Ramsey since I listen to him all the time. And so that is how Ramsey became a part of our family.

    Ramsey is a little sweetie! Keep up the pics of cuteness Smile

    That is about the cutest thing I've seen for quite awhile - animal-related that is. My mom has a Yorkie Poo and I now see where he got all of his cuteness - obviously the Yorkie side of the bloodline!

    Oh my gosh, what a cutie! My husband has always loved these dogs. Cute name for the dog. I'm sure that Dave Ramsey would get a kick out of his namesake if you were to upload a photo to him.

    I keep thinking that I need to send Dave a picture of Ramsey, but seems like I can never remember when I do have the time.

    What a beautiful little pup! The Yorkies are one of the breeds that lead to fewer allergic problems, is that correct? My wife is allergic to many breeds, but we would like a dog (preferably without running up the insurance co-pays at the allergist, though!)...

    That's correct, Jerry. Yorkies have hair instead of fur. It's another reason that we got one. A few of us have allergies so a Yorkie is a great pet for us. And he doesn't smell "doggy" when he gets wet! :-)
