Yogi was the inspiration for Austin Pets Directory. He is the reason that it continues today. Yogi technically expired in 2005, though he still writes his advice column from The Flipside. Yogi was quite possibly the surliest dog who ever lived and very much a rock star here in Austin. He had only one regret in life; that he couldn’t give the finger. Dead or alive, Yogi Parker is still kind of a big deal.

Liz’s dog, Priscilla Parker joined her brother, Yogi on the flipside in August of 2009. She was the best dog in the whole world and whenever people think about her or say her name, a desert queen smiles down from heaven.
