Raymond came to us from a Maryland shelter. He was turned in by his owners.
Raymond is ten years old and has eye problems that needed to be dealt with. He obviously had these issues for a long time and they weren't treated--
Putting in eye drops can be critical for many Pekingese. Dry eye can lead to ulcers, infections and other problems. With their bulgy eyes, they are prone to dry eye and injuries.
Raymond is so good about his eye drops. He has some vision and gets around fine.
He is a small one, less than 12 pounds-- and he has no tail. We don't know what happened to it.
Raymond is going to his new forever home this week. We are SO excited for him! We know his new parents and they are wonderful, loving people. He will be Arby's brother! (She is one of the Bristol 18 Pekes.) I think they will be a very cute pair!
We are getting ready for the picnic! People are letting me know they will be bringing things to sell at our silent auction. The beautiful little box holds a small figurine on top. And the little Pekingese salt and pepper shakers and a beautiful picture of Peggy's heart dog are sure to be irresistible items. I have some small items to sell also, so be sure to come, ready to add some special things to your collection.
Our picnic is coming up on May 16-- Desi sent me an email to let me know there will be a Desi's Boutique there. There will be an assortment of dog fashion accessories to buy. Her mom is going to try to make some extras because we know it will be a favorite! Lexie has already told me that she wants me to pick some things up for her. There will be necklaces, ties, stretch collars flower accents (one of her favorite items to really pull an outfit together).
Most items $ 3-5. The fancy hats will be a little more. I hope you are planning to come to the picnic!! See you there! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or on this blog. :-)
Here are some more items that will be at the Silent Auction. A home-made quilt by Eve.
... a book to help you be a better dog owner.
I love this one--- most of us are the ones who were rescued.
I love this, too. Yes, we have a few rotten Pekes here. :-)
Be sure to bid on the items at the picnic! All the money will go to our foster dogs' medical care.
Tucker's family needed help-- and last month Tucker went to visit with Kay and Claretta and their crew. Tucker is back home now, happy and doing great. (Here he is with his human sister.)
He was in rescue in 2006, and is now about 14. He has one eye now, but he is still precious.
Tucker had a sleep over camp with Pekes and a Dobie. What an adventure!
Every good camp provides the opportunity to make new friends. After outdoor
play Beau, Teddy, Tucker and Maggie had nap time.
Tucker found a spot in the sunshine for some quiet time.
Unfortunately, he discovered the camp pool had shampoo in it.
Gardening was a favorite outdoor activity.
Before he knew it, it was time to get cleaned up to go home. (Oh, look at that little bit of tongue there!)
Tucker supervised packing and then camp time was over and he was reunited with his human sister. Thank you to Kay and Claretta and their crew for giving this wonderful and loving adventure to Tucker. We know he had a wonderful time!
