“Protect those who protect you.” — Evangelos Venizelos
Despite her diminutive Yorkie size, Willie or “The Wil” is tasked with a substantial duty. Living up to the weight of her formal Wilhelmina name, derived from the German Wilhelm, meaning “desire” and “willing to protect,” The Wil appears to grasp the seriousness of such an important duty. Inserting herself squarely in the lap of her to-be-protected person, she employs her weapon of choice – nonstop wet and slobbery kisses.
