How tough can Yorkies be? Heroes!



Yorkies are always surprising me. Today I learnt about Smoky, a female yorkie who weighed 1.8 kilos and was a World War II hero! She was found by a 21-year-old American Air Force official William A. Wynne, who was stationed in New Guinea during World War II. When he first saw her, he fell in love immediately, even though he could not tell what kind of dog she was. He taught her many tricks and she entertained troops in camps and hospitals from Australia to Korea. It was not long before she became a hero . . . You can read a bit more about Smoky here.
