Meet Yoshi

It’s all Yoshi’s fault. He did it to us. He turned us into…dog people. Like, crazy dog people. I blame him.

It all started in May 2008 when we moved from Missouri to Indiana. Being new in town, we hadn’t found a church yet, hadn’t made any real friends or gotten involved anywhere. We were just a couple of married kids fresh outta college and bored out of our minds.

Enter: puppy fever.

It was just supposed to be something to pass the time. A little puppy to care for, play with…

We originally wanted a Great Dane, but that wasn’t going to work so well in our tiny apartment. I looked up different small dog breeds and quickly fell in love with the Yorkie/Bichon mix.

or Borkie.

or Yo-chon.

A couple weeks later I “casually” ran across (I mean, it’s not like I was searching online for nearby Borkie’s every two hours..right?) this little guy. Of course, Chris bargained down his price by $50. Hey, it never hurts to ask! And little Yoshi came home with us, all sweet and timid-like.

Huh? Sweet and timid-like? Oh yeah, that side of him only lasted for about 12 hours.

Our little puppy was only supposed to get to 7 lbs, but he kept growing, and growing, and growing….to a whopping 15 lbs. And he’s buff. Yeah, he’s got some thunder thighs and a six-pack. You just can’t see it behind all that fur!

And that’s how it all began. He would say that it’s nice to meet you, but he doesn’t like to meet new people. You’ll have to win him over – I suggest using chicken, or cheese, or a squeaky toy.

  1. I forgot how tiny he was in the beginning. Is it weird that I think he’s the dog version of Chris? Somehow it just fits… Maybe it’s the hair.

  2. Haha, I can see that. Spoiled (by me), big hair, and eccentric. They say that dogs always match their people!

  3. I’m lanky, whiny, cuddle-prone, and love the outdoors. Yep, identical to both my dogs. But less hairy on the face and back.
