Wordless Wednesday – The Buppies

Baby Buppies - 5 months old - September 1992

Skyler and Reggie at 5 months old - I miss these two!

Sorry … couldn’t go completely wordless. We got these two Yorkies in 1992, a few months apart, although they were only 2 weeks apart in age. They were so much fun. They played hard and got into trouble frequently. Reggie lived to be 14-1/2 years old and Skyler made it to 15-1/2. This is one of my favorite photos of them — they look like such ragamuffins! This was when the term Yuppies was popular so we nicknamed them the Buppies for baby puppies.

  1. Oh my gosh – what sweet little buppies! 🙂 I am sorry to hear they are no longer with you!

    • They’ve been gone for a couple of years now and we have two other wonderful puppies to love on. Maybe it’s because those were the two our girls remember most during their high school years, but we still talk about them all the time and all their funny little quirks. They were just great dogs!

  2. they are so cute

  3. Spirits live on in memories. As long as you remember them their spirit will remain with you.

  4. I’ll bet you do miss them. They are such cuties!

    • It’s amazing how — just like people — dogs have their own personalities. We’ve had 5 Yorkies now over 30 years and their traits are very individual and distinct. Thanks for visiting!

  5. Awww…they look like they were sweet Buppies. 🙂

  6. They were dolls!

    Thank you for such a sweet comment. Isn’t it amazing how pets can tug on the heart strings the way they do!?! I can’t imagine not EVER missing Abby and Aja. :o(

  7. Cuteness overload!

    • Just looking at that picture makes me smile — you can almost see the mischief brewing in their little brains.

  8. They are adorable! I miss all my pets past.

    • Me, too. We have their collars and tags that we hang on our Christmas tree each year. I always get a little misty when we’re decorating.

  9. If you surround them with plush animals it would be hard to pick out the real thing! They look like they should have a Gund tag on their butts. Thanks for sharing this adorable pic. They are never truly gone.

    • I think with their shaggy hair, they look like little hoodlums. Don’t they have an “I’ll kick your ass” attitude — but in a cute way?

      No, they’ll never be gone. I’m amazed at how often I think of them.

  10. they were sweet this is a great photo of them they looked like stuffed animals.

    • It is one of my very favorite photos of these two and I have hundreds, maybe thousands! They did look like stuffed animals!
