Name: Seven Deco Lawson

Breed: Yorkshire Terrior

How long you've owned: I have owned Seven since she was six weeks old

Adoption story: I always wanted a Yorkshire Terrior - in 2008 it was heavily on my mind. One day, out of the blue, a musician colleague said, " I'm not sure if you like dogs, but I know a Yorkie breeder who has too many yorkies running around her home that her momma yorkie just had." It was music to my ears ! The next day I went to take a look at the little litter of the cutest full-bred yorkies I have ever seen! They were all so cute! Jumping everywhere with such puppy energy and so new to the world - except Seven. She was too cool for me! She was calm, even tempered, and paid me NO mind. She looked at me, grabbed her moose (which was then way bigger that her) walked away and went back to sleep. I knew she was the one for me. I will never forget the day I took her home. She looked at me, kissed my nose, and feel asleep on my lap in the car while the music played from the radio. We have been best friends ever since.

Favorite thing to do with your pet: She is so sweet, so kind and gives LOTS and LOTS of kisses. She has the most personality and is so smart that I really don't have one favorite thing to do with her because everything she does is my favorite and everything we do together is always perfect. I am super lucky because she is a dream dog. A perfect little angel.

The naughtiest thing your pet has done: There are three that stand out. She started touring with me when she was months old so now she is a seasoned traveler. I can't say it was all that easy at first. When she was in her "terrible twos" she decided it would be a good idea to quietly sneak out of her doggy bag in the airplane and have a joy run - running up and down the aisles while mommy slept OR it was the time I opened my hotel room door after a long show of RENT and little Seven (must have been 5 pounds) pulled the entire wood panel that lined the floor off the wall. Here I am at 2 am glueing and nailing the wood panel back to the wall. Luckily the hotel never noticed OR it was the time at the dog park when this other dog that was slightly bigger than Seven that was messing with her (remember Seven is too cool for anyone) so Seven decided instead of entertaining the other slightly bigger dog - she went up to the biggest dog in the dog park (if I can recall was a doberman pinscher) looked him right in the eye - nose to nose- did some dog communication - The doberman pinscher must have told Seven that he had her back because she trotted back to the dog that was messing with the doberman pinscher following - must have said " this is the dog thats messing with me" because the doberman pinscher went right up to that dog and that dog- said its words- and that dog left Seven alone the rest of the time at the dog park.

About that moose... she has been carrying the moose around since she was born. It's her blanky and her friend. So (unfortunately for me) I have been buying the same Webkins Moose stuffed animal for her off of Amazon for the last 8 years because I know how much she loves her companion. She must have gone through 50 of them. The only time she puts the moose down is when she eats or goes for a walk- otherwise its either in her mouth or next to her.

What would your pet's catch-phrase be?: Me too
