Emma Watson & Yorkie - i-D Magazine
Emma Watson Strips Down to Her Yorkie – Well, I guess it isn’t actually her Yorkie, but the former Harry Potter Actress did strip down to nothing but a fancy gold jacket and a strategically placed (and annoyed-looking) Yorkshire Terrier dog in a recent garden photo shoot for i-D magazine.
Having been used already as an accessory by Paris Hilton, Yorkies everywhere are hoping that the fashion trend won’t catch on again!
Yorkie unafraid of Ozzy
Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne were the winning bidders for an 8 week old rescue Yorkie at the 13th Annual Design Care auction. The event benefits The Talk co-host Holly Robinson Peete’s HollyRod Foundation which helps families living with Autism and Parkinson’s Disease.
The bidding for the Yorkshire Terrier puppy, ironically named “Ozzy,” started at $5000, and ended with a final offer from the Osbournes of $10,000.

Did you know? Yorkies were originally bred in the 19th Century by mill owners in Yorkshire, England primarily to catch rats. (probably not a problem in Beverly Hills?) A Yorkie named Pasha ruled the Whitehouse with an iron paw during the Nixon years (owned by President Nixon’s daughter Tricia)
World's Smallest Dog
Eva Gabor’s character obeyed a Yorkie on Green Acres, and so did Sharpay in High School Musical 2. Although the original intent was for Toto in the Wizard of Oz to be a Yorkie, they used a Cairn Terrier instead.
For years the Guiness Book of World Records listed a Yorkie as the World’s Smallest Dog. (Although that title currently belongs to a Chihuahua.)
