Roxy and Daisy have been in rescue a week now. They are both so sweet.
They were matted some and the easiest (and coolest) thing to do was to give them summer cuts.
I could not tell them apart (in pictures) once they were trimmed down, but there is a 6 pound difference in them, so in person, I could tell them apart.
Even their bandanas matched!
After their grooming, it was time for rolling around. Oh, that was so much fun!
Are you done?
Daisy finally decided it was time for a nap. She is feeling better this week-end. She had her teeth cleaned last week and lost 19 teeth! She has 7 left. Her mouth was in awful condition (the worst I've seen), but she is doing great and finally able to enjoy her food now.
Daisy has decided to share a bed with Hurricane. Seminole and Hurricane slept together, but since Seminole died, Hurricane has slept by himself. Now, he just might have a new buddy! I'm so glad! Roxy and Daisy will be available for adoption soon!
Sophie is doing so well in her new home and every time her mom emails or texts me, I know I'm going to be smiling.
Lexie has discovered the dishwasher and the soft sound of it just amazes her. She is wondering, "what is that noise??"
Her mom takes Sophie on a lot of walks and when it's raining, Sophie wears her raincoat.
It helps, but she still needs a towel when she gets back. She loves her walks, though, rain or shine.
She met her groomer and her babysitter, and they adore her. They could not believe how sweet and loving she is. Her life now is so full of joy! Sophie and her mom love each other so much! I love rescue!! And to make you smile even more, here is Sophie listening to a show on TV. Her hearing is amazing! There were dogs on the show and she could hear them. The head tilts are so cute!

This has been a rough week-- too many farewells. But, I did not expect to write this one.
Gracie Lu, like so many of our Pekes, was very special.
She came to me as a foster in 2008. She was six years old.
She had had two previous owners who both had passed away, and she needed a forever home.
Here she was with her favorite-- and only-- vet, Dr. Carpenter. Gracie thought the vet was a place she could be loved and pampered.
Gracie went to visit Jane and we decided that this was a perfect foster home for Gracie.
It very quickly became apparent that it was Gracie's forever home.
Gracie went everywhere with Jane and had all she could possibly need.
Look at her car seat-- it's magnificent!
Gracie Lu loved her mom so much-- Gracie even sent me an email telling me how she had saved her mom-- a human who needed rescuing. Here's what she wrote: "My name is Gracie Lu and I am a Rescue Dog. My story is how I rescued my
Mom. I have a human friend, Linda, who helps pekingese find their perfect
people. One day she told me that she knew a lady who had lost her two little
Pekes and that she needed to be rescued. So I suggested that we make a visit to
her so that I could see what I could do. Linda and I drove over to Jane's house and I checked everything out and
told Linda that I would just stay with Jane for a bit and see how I could help.
Jane was so sad and needed to laugh and have good company (me). I took her
places , rode in the car with her and we walked all over the neighborhood and
talked to people. I loved on her, wagged my tail a lot and gave her sloppy
kisses and she began to smile. So I told Linda that I would just adopt Jane and she could be my Mom. I'm
really good, I make her smile and she walks with me and we are both happy and
And that's how I rescued my MOM. Now isn't that a nice story for a little girl like me.
Gracie Lu had a wonderful life with Jane-- she loved Christmas and hoped all the other rescued dogs had as great a life as she had.
She was a happy girl-- she had so much love surrounding her.
We will all miss you, Gracie Lu. My heart is with Jane -- Gracie was her love and best friend. Run free, now sweet sweet girl.
