Yorkies Have Their Own Vocabulary!
Terminology - Basic Yorkish - Learn it Well!
Yorked, yorking, york - This is when we love our humans by rubbing our heads and bodies against them. Almost like a cat. When a human lays on the floor, we will hop over and over his/her head yorking his/her face on each pass. We also love to york human feet when they’re standing still. If a human is sitting in a chair or holding us or if a human is in any position where we can reach his/her face, we cover their face with kisses.
Yorkieslurpies - Our tongues can slurp over a face in two seconds flat!
Yorkaholic - An abnormal addition to one or more Yorkies. That’s why we are the alpha members of our family.
York alarm - When Mom or Dad is sleeping and we need to wake someone up, we walk on their side up to their shoulder, and stare into their face. If it’s really urgent, we use one of our vocabulary words.
Yorkiebumps - These are toys left around the house. These cause Mom and Dad to walk slowly.
Yorkowel - Yorkie towel a.k.a. sofa and/or carpeting. These are fully utilized after baths.

Yorkish - Yorkie language. Tones range from low to high with various inflections which emit very different sounds. Used when yorking, to sound a York alarm, and when yorkiehopping. May also be heard at any time for any reason.
Yorkietrot - When we walk on our hind legs to see over boxes or the board in front of our gate in the backyard. We HAVE to see anyone who drives into our driveway or is leaving. We can walk on two legs as well as any human!
