Morkie is half Maltese and half Yorkshire Terrier and the “apple of my eye.” His second birthday is shared with the birth of this blog. September 6, 2011. He is very cute, very loving, very patient. He has long hair on his feet and absolutely loves to run. Watching him run around, literally in circles, is an example of how the simple things are sometimes the most joyous.
Once when getting my annual checkup, as the physcian was checking my blood pressure she said to “think of something that makes you smile.” Afterwards she asked what that was. “Morkie, running across the yard.” I replied. I believe Merriam-Webster had Morkie running free in a field in their minds when writing definitions of joy – a feeling of great happiness.
