Mozart is 7 years old today. He got special hugs and kisses and we are trying to decide what to do for his party. We may take all the babies to PetsMart and let them have a grand time getting lots of attention while we buy Mozart a treat that doesn't have chicken or beef in it.

Thank you all, dear friends. Mozart is having a wonderful day and getting lots of attention and love. He is such a sweet little man. He is very lovable and usually is the favored one when we have guests because he will gladly go and cuddle on anyone's lap. He also has a sweet face that they seem to love. His favorite place to sleep is right up by our chest and he curls up in a little ball until I reach over to pet him and then he rolls on his back for his favorite tummy rubs. We adopted Mozart (originally named Hollister) when he was 11 months old. His family sold him so the child could have Christmas presents. Mozart had been a gift to the son by his father and the father had been killed in an accident. He had been completely shaved and was not neutered. When he came, he humped everything! At the time, it was only Kipper and LingLing in the house. We took him straightaway to be neutered and have baby teeth pulled. We didn't realize that the hair on his face would not grow because he was extremely allergic to chicken and beef! As soon as we got a handle on that, the hair has grown nicely and he looks like a happy little Yorkie! He does have subluxing patellas that make him walk funny once in awhile, but it hasn't gotten extreme. We use fish oil on the food we feed the dogs (lamb based) and a water additive that has glucosamine in it and that seems to help keep things stable. Mozart is a beloved member of our family and I will always be so grateful that God gave him to us.
