Lucy Liu, My Tiny Yorkie Niece!

Lucy Liu, My Sis's Yorkie, Is My Ladybug's BFF!

She's a tiny, adorable fluffball... she's a little spitfire when she decides to get frisky... she's a doll baby when she feels like snuggling... she's Lucy Liu! This precious, feisty Yorkshire Terrier spends her days living the charmed life supervising the goings-on in her Mommy's hair salon.

Lucy has a pretend husband, Ziggy, a 2-year-old male Yorkie who belongs to a friend of Celia. They are practically inseparable.

Lucy lives in the Kansas City area and we live in Omaha, so we don't get to see her as often as we'd like. Over our visits she's grown to know us and now she looks forward to her visits with Ladybug, my tiny Miniature Schnauzer. They play nonstop from the minute they get together until they fall down exhausted once apart.

We adore little Lucy and think she's just pretty darned cool!

Lucy's Story

Lucy was born on July 9, 2009. My sister found a picture of her sister online, fell in love, and called to ask about her. Turns out she was already sold, and Celia was crushed. But the breeder sent a pic of her tiny little sister, Lucy, and it was love at first sight. Celia and her husband, Randy, drove over three hours to pick her up in Frankfort, KS. Celia was sitting cross-legged on the sidewalk in the middle of this little town. Lucy got of kennel and hopped onto Celia, and it was all over! At the time, Lucy was just 10 weeks old.

More Fun Facts About Lucy Liu - She Isn't 100 Percent Angel, But She's Close!

  • Lucy's favorite treat is Greenies micro mini diet.
  • Lucy's favorite food is prescription Science wet for LD (hepatic) and Royal Canin dry, mixed
  • When Lucy is happy, she goes in circles real fast on the bed. If she's playing, she sticks her butt up in air .
  • When Lucy is sad or bored, she will get in her bed. When she is sick or cold, she gets in her kennel.
  • Lucy does have one very ornery habit! Celia has a hair salon in her home. Lucy sometimes hangs out in the shop with the ladies. If she gets the chance, she will get in their purses! She loves to steal paper, paper money, kleenex, pens and pencils. She then hides them in the next room, hides under the pool table and chews them up! So ladies are always warned to keep their purses off the floor!

Celia suggests if you are considering purchasing a Yorkshire Terrier, have them tested first for congenital liver conditions.

Lucy's Medical Condition

Microvascular Dysplasia

When Lucy was getting ready to be spayed, the pre-op blood tests turned up a liver problem. They thought she had a shunt, did exploratory surgery, and had no shunt. That left her with a diagnosis of microvascular dysplasia. The only treatment is liver supplements, Denisil (Sam-E) and a low protein, low fat diet.

Lucy's Favorite Play Games

She loves to play ball with her dad. She grabs the ball and runs to the living room. Randy lays down and throws the ball for Lucy. Then they play tuggie and he throws the ball again.

Now, Lucy won't play with just any ball! Her preference is the fuzzy boodah ball with a giraffe on it. When they are able to find them, they buy them by the dozen!

      Jaye, I had to laugh at your Schnauzer blind little girl!! I have had the privilege of caring for three different blind schnauzers over the years and they are so truly amazing in their abilities! Thanks for the vote-up too!

      I enjoyed reading about your Yorkie niece, Lucy. She's a real cutie-pie. I, too, have a Yorkie relation--my grand-doggy, Tinkerbell, who shares the home of my son and daughter-in-law.

      I laughed about Lucy's penchant for nosing around in the ladies' handbags. My own schnauzer girl heads straight for any tote bag left on the floor (even though she's blind) because she can smell snack food from two rooms away. Everyone's trained not to set totes, handbags or shopping bags on the floor at her level.

      @Thamisgith: Cool! I have a Miniature Schnauzer named Monty. He's a slightly

      psychopathic elderly Miniature Schnauzer! He's been in my rescue for six

      years, as he is unadoptable due to being a biter. What a funny little guy

      tho! He has a lens here at Squidoo too.Hugs to your Monty!

      We have a Yorkie called Monty. He's our second. We had one called Toto when we lived in Brazil. People seem to love them, they stop and make a fuss of him in the street when we're out walking.

      @aquarian_insight: Thanks for the blessing! I, too, have a Monty but he is a tiny 9 lb. Miniature Schnauzer! He has his own lens here on Squidoo too. Your nephew sounds like a cutie.
