 I'm going to use this picture twice-- why?  Because it shows how far this little man has come.  
 When he came from the shelter, we honestly did not know if he would make it.   You can see missing hair, eye ulcers and infection.   You can't see an infected mouth with bad teeth, and a dog who was near death.
 At his foster home, he was getting the best care possible-- but then he needed to stay with the vet who could give him medication 24/7.   He needed it every two hours-- and we foster moms/dads are just not able to handle that kind of schedule for more than a few days.  
 The staff fell in love with him.  He got pain meds in his eyes and that really helped.   He received fluids and medication, appetite stimulant and other medications that helped him begin to make progress, to turn that direction away from losing to winning.
 He was cuddled a lot at the vet, and his tail began to wag all the time.  He was eating up the love he was getting.  He was definitely a favorite patient there.  (We love our vets!)
 He was able to go home to his foster mom after he had a dental on Monday.  It had to be done.  Even though he needed to heal more, if those bad teeth weren't removed, it would hinder him from healing more.   Bad teeth and mouth infection can lead to serious heart issues.  (That is why Floyd has a grade 5 heart murmur.  His mouth was horrendous.)
 Prince has been on some walks and he loves it!!  He is actually running from tree to tree, and checking out all the smells!    We would have never thought he would be able to do this a week ago.  Kim, his foster mom, said he is quite a character and his personality is starting to come out.   He is eating well (last week, he wouldn't eat at all).   He loves walking around his foster home, and adores his dog bed!  He is so sweet and we believe he is going to not only make it, but thrive!!   He is taking his eye drops with no issues.   YAHOO.   Thank you to everyone who has donated to his care.   We could not do this without you!  We believe Prince is going to have victory over his past life and have a wonderful future!

 Gizzy came into rescue after his owner could no longer care for him.   He had a lot of skin issues and his foster parents took this on, determining that they would help him get healthy.
 He is a beautiful little boy now.
 His brother, Doolin, absolutely adores him!
 Gizzy is very pampered and gets special food for his allergies.  They make a lot of it, even his treats.
 Gizzy and Doolin play a lot, or just snuggle together.   They have become so bonded.
 Some days when his dad goes to work, Gizzy will hang out at the door, waiting for him.
 They both love riding in the car, and  Doolin stays close to keep Gizzy safe.
 Touching your best friend is awesome!
I wonder if his foster dad is going to put him into a stocking this year.   I think he'll fit!  They say he has brought so much life, love and hope into their lives.
Gizzy is firmly implanted as the big lovable, sometimes funky, chunky, super fluffy, big round blackness of a porky love ball.  I think someone is going to be a Christmas present this year!

Sweet Doolin and Gizzy-- they just love each other!

 Gracie Lu came to me after her mom died in 2008.   Jane fostered her and then adopted her and Gracie had a wonderful life.  She passed away last year, but she lives on in the love her mom had for her.   Jane made a donation in her memory and in Joyful Grace's memory.   I'm sure they are both playing in heaven now!  Joyful below, probably still has a lot of outfits there!
 If you make a donation of any amount this month or/and next month, and send me a picture of your dog/dogs, I'll post their picture on this blog, which will be reposted every few days as new pictures/donations come in.   I hope it ends up being a really long blog!   You can make a donation in memory of one of your beloved Pekes, or for one that you have now.   It can be to honor someone you love.   Once you make a donation, send me a picture/name of your pet to   We want to end this year with JOY!
 My crew wanted to make a donation in memory of Joyful Grace.   Kai Kai and Chumley are both PVPC alumni (they all are!) and they want to help.
Whoops, that's not a Peke, but she loves the Pekes here.
Floyd wants the end of the year donations to come on in.
Starlight, the Princess, thinks her cuteness might help.
Max doesn't care either way haha.
Tucker's family is making a donation, too, so maybe I can get a picture of his entire doggy family.
Paws, Barbara Mudd's heart dog, is now on our list!  His mom made a donation to help our Pekes.  She is becoming active in helping us with rescue and has a lot of knowledge that is great!!  
 Emily's Pekes, Drizzle and...
 Newman are monthly supporters of our rescue.   THANK YOU!!   It's amazing how you can become good friends with someone and never actually have met them!
 Bonnie's Dickens know how wonderful it is to have a forever home.
 Coco is an Australian Peke-- a rescue-- and lives with my good friend, Melinda.
 Rita's pups, Ladybug, Patches and Cupcake.  They all died within 18 months of each other at ages, 13, 14 and 10.
I know they took part of her heart with them.
 Gizzy was a foster that they took in and they have done a tremendous job with him!!  Gizzy and Doolin, his brother, help us each month.
And Doolin LOVES having a friend!!

Ann has supported our group for years.  She had a beautiful Peke named Princess. She loved her little purse!!  Princess is no longer with her, but always remembered.   
Kay and Claretta sent in a donation as we end our "Joyful Year."   They have fostered and adopted, at one time, telling us to "give us your toughest dog."   We did!   Here they are, clockwise, beginning at "4."  Domino (yep, he was a trip while we had him!), Beau (oh, I love this boy!), Tucker, Tina, Pop, Maggie and Teddy.   
 The 7 Pekes have a beautiful Doberman sister named Tori.  I just couldn't leave her out!  She just thinks she is a very big Peke!! :-)
 Amee sent in a donation in memory of Joyful Grace, and her beloved girls, Darby and Macy.  This is Lexie, one of her Pekes now.
 Amee also wanted to honor Lexie and Mollie.   Mollie is so beautiful and little-- and she sometimes thinks she is the boss.  (Hmmm, this sounds familiar!)
 Amee's Drill Bit with the Pekes-- she and I both have Drill Bits!
Harley Marie is ready to look for all things Christmas-- of course, she lets her mom go along.   Harley was one of my foster dogs and SO adorable.   I love getting updates.
