If you have been following my blog, you’ve probably seen me mention my dog, Willy. I named him after the Yorkie in my series of murder novels about Jim Richards and his wife Penny. My real life Willy is also a Yorkie, but I wanted to find out more about his breed. So after extensively researching internet websites for Yorkies, I have determined that Willy is an Australian breed of Terrier known as a Silky Terrier. He fits every detail from two websites, hair color, texture, his temperament, ears, body, etc, and as I read one detailed description, I could have sworn they were writing about Willy. I did check other Terrier breeds and they have enough differences to rule them out. This picture was just taken, and I should have brushed his fur to make him look pretty. Unfortunately, when I do brush him he will shake it out and look a mess again. So I give up. He’s also hard to photograph, he moves too quickly. I take six blurry photos to get one that looks good. Here’s to my little Silky Terrier. (Actually they all do look alike.)

    You would never know he could tear up Jack. He looks so innocent! 🙂

  2. Believe me, he’s hardly innocent. He can be a nervous little terror when he gets worked up.
