To Members of the San Francisco Yorkshire Terrier Group!

Rick Caran, one of our members who currently reside in New York will be vising San Francisco with Jilli this coming weekend. In honor of their visit to the Bay Area, we will be meeting at Bella and Daisy's this coming Sunday, January 11th from 12 noon to 1:30pm for another day of yorkie fun! Rick will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the breed and his experiences with Jilli as she has been featured in many pet magazines, trade shows, pet expos and television programs. Rick and Jilli was recently featured in Animal Planet and for those who have missed the Animal Planet segment, here is the link that was set up on YouTube:


Don't miss out as Jilli will perform many of her amazing tricks, such as the famous poker playing trick that is known among all yorkie/dog lovers! Should any of the members who would like to gather before the Meetup, we will be meeting at Ottimista at 11:00am for a yorkie brunch to kick off the special day! Ottimista is located at 1838 Union Street in Cow Hollow, just one block down from Bella and Daisy's. If you are interested in joining us with your yorkies, please RSVP so I can give the restaurant a head/yorkie count! We look forward to Rick and Jilli's visit to the Bay Area and we hope members of the San Francisco Yorkshire Terrier Group will join us for another day of yorkie FUN!

    Diane, Al, Rudy and Nicolette had a wonderful time at the brunch with all the lovely people and Yorkies (oh so cute). The performance at Bella and Daisy's was darling and delightful. Jilli Dog was on top of her game and Rich and Judy were such a pleasure to meet and get to know. It was totally wonderful and special and we enjoyed each and every moment. Thank you to all who made it possible.... Great job....

    Rick, Judy and Jilli were personable, intelligent, well dressed, fun, flexible, outgoing, energetic and talented, even though Jilli was the pack leader (as any good Yorkie is!). Jilli is quite a talent, but couldn't have done it without her helper, Rick! Great Job and Great performance!

    It was good. Started a bit late, though. The tricks were great to watch. Inspirational.

    Hello, I am going to the brunch before the meet-up. I just want to make sure that my friend and I and our 2 dogs got counted for the head count! :)
    I am guessing we just show up at the restaurant at 11am. How many people are attending?

    Thanks! See you soon! :)
