These are my dogs!

These are my two dogs Yumi and Twinkie. Twinkie is the Micro Daschund. That's her breed. Plus she was the runt of the litter and when we bought her 11 years ago she was the size of half a soda can! Can you believe that?! And Yumi here is a Thai Ridge Back. When we rescued Yumi, the Shelter that had her didn't like her because her breed is Thai Ridge Back and her back didn't have a ridge so she wasn't like her breed and she was basically the outcast of the breed. And to boot her old family abused her so she was scared and a bit aggressive because of her abuse which makes me think that she has low self-esteem issues and when dogs have low self-esteem they usually try to act tough so they bark and bite and growl when you get near her unless she knows you. But I just learned a couple of days ago that Thai Ridge Backs are one of the rarest breeds in the world and it is estimated that there are only 100 in the U.S. and Yumi is one of them. You pronounce her name like this (Yoo-MEE), like you and me together, one after another.
