She knows how much we all have to be thankful for.
She is thankful to our rescue-- after all, she was one of our foster Pekes. She had some medical issues and was turned in so we could help her.
The best thing was that she was adopted by a vet!! Desi gets all the care she needs.
Not only does she get great medical care, she has a huge wardrobe!
Her mom is her vet and her dad runs the clinic-- he loves all the Pekes, too (and helps with our "testy" ones).
Desi knows she is the princess even though she has to share her parents with other dogs who need them.
Her best friend is Onslow and he joined Desi's family when he needed neck surgery. Then, he stayed-- like many others. Desi knows she is special and that her mom loves her best. She is thankful for that!
Cosmo was joined by Penny (formerly Katrina of the Bristol 18). She joined their family in 2010-- can it be 5 years already!
Cosmo likes to have his picture taken I think.
JJ was a foster and I remember his foster mom saying he had been adopted when he was 3 and then the owner took him to a shelter at 6 years old. It would be so nice if fosters could tell us what they have been through before we get them. Phyllis fostered him 2 years ago--
She told me then, "it would be wonderful for him to find a home where he stays forever." Well, he got his forever home-- with his foster mom, Phyllis! I'm so glad! Look at that face.
Penney adjusted so well to her new home when she was adopted -- and she loves her brothers.
Yes, I think these dogs are comfortable in their home. Relaxed, JJ? :-)
And Cosmo looks very comfortable!
They look like they sometimes just melt into the carpet.
Penney is probably wondering what he is doing.
Cosmo obviously can relax anywhere. This was last year and I think he'll do the same thing pretty soon when this year's tree goes up. Are you all getting ready to send me Christmas Peke pictures? I sure hope so!
Starlight says last week was too stressful. Sugar Bit had a health crises, and Starlight was so concerned about her. (Sugar Bit is my 6 month old granddaughter.)
Kai Kai was praying everything would turn out fine.
My daughter who is several hours away, came down with two of her Bits to visit and see Sugar Bit.
Beach Bit was so glad they came! He loves to play with his cousins.
They brought their Chocolate Lab puppy, Gigi. She is staying with us over Thanksgiving, along with her Shepherd/Lab sister, Pi.
Chumley was ready for the Bits-- he loves them. More people to throw his ball!!
Sugar Bit seems to be doing better--
Nothing takes her smiles away. She is the happiest, most joyful baby I've ever been around.
Pi can help watch her while Pi is here. Pi is almost 14, and the best dog ever-- and that is coming from a long time Pekingese lover. Pi is like a big, protective, calm, loving Nanny. We all adore this special girl.
Starlight, as usual, found a place under the table where she can't be stepped on or bothered.
Bitty Bit ate the baked pancakes Poppy (my husband, Matt) made for everyone for breakfast. These are a long time family favorite. They are easy to make!
The boys loved theirs! Of course, there were shenanigans going on, too.
You can see the mischief in their faces!
Sugar Bit is too young for pancakes, so she just grinned while we ate.
Playtime between cousins-- I love watching them.
Max is just finding a quiet place to chill out. He is 12 now and he's always like his calm spots-- The craziness of Camp Runamuck can make several want to run for the hills-- but for the most part, it is just loads of fun. And Sugar Bit is doing better, we are watching her carefully and loving on her. Thank you to everyone who prayed for her!
