Walking

Nov 09, 2010 No Comments

Millie is funny about walking. It’s usually mom who takes her but she is spoiled to the rafters. She’ll only walk on picture perfect days, sun shining, moderate temperatures, and dry days. So there again – “little” walks work just fine for her. I have to say that Millie doesn’t “walk” she prances and struts. [...]

Playtime

Now this is where “little” loses its luster. There is absolutely nothing small about the way Millie plays and she will never ever tire of playing. This is the most active Yorkie ever. We’ve spoken to many Yorkie owners and they’ve told us their Yorkies usually just lay around the house and sleep. Not Millie! [...]

The only thing I could think of then was to go door-to-door to drum up some sales. There was an industrial park a few blocks away, off Linden Boulevard, with many manufacturing facilities. So, that was my plan. But I needed a little something to give away, a leave-behind or “door-opener”. So we printed up [...]

Here’s one you’ll never believe, I mean it just goes on and on. Millie is like a little person – she is happiest when Mommy, Daddy, and she are all together, no matter where it is. Of course, as almost every Yorkie owner will admit, the little Yorkshire terrier sleeps in bed with the family. [...]

A Printer’s Devil – Part I

Sep 17, 2010 No Comments

In the early fifties, my sister and I lived in a large three-floor Colonial on Buell Street, in East Elmhurst, Queens. The house had a three-car garage so dad used part to store fittings for his plumbing and heating business, L&L Heating & Maintenance Corp. I attended PS 127 Elementary School and walked the almost [...]

Some viewers of our website may recognize Millie – our 4 lb+ Yorkie, born December 21, 2004 in St Louis, Missouri – bringing elegance, charm, entertainment and sweetness to our offices. (There are those moments, however, when she insists on letting us know that someone new has arrived or that the garbage is being thrown [...]
