Mr. Rat

Today I would like to tell you about the favourite toy of my dog - Mr. Rat :-) Why Mr. Rat is her favourite toy? The origin of Yorkshire Terriers has something to do with this for sure, Dog Breed Info:
The Yorkie was created by working men of north England, who developed the breed for catching the terrible rats and mice that infested clothing mills and mine shafts.
So, yes, Yorkshire Terriers are hunting dogs - they can penetrate even into badger and fox burrows.
Mice or rats? Yorkie below, nonetheless, does not look very much interested in a rat :-)
