I hear a big weather front is going to hit the midwest and they are supposed to get a lot of snow, so I thought I should post more snow pictures. This is Coco-- he was Lisa's first Pekingese when she was ten years old and he began a love for the breed that continues to grow.
This is Leigh's Darcy-- this was taken a long time ago, but I'm sure the snow will be fun to play in if it comes this winter.
Kody and Sadie are in this one-- can we eat snow??
If it's snowing outside, is it okay to just stay inside and watch?
Can curling up with Christmas toys be just as much fun?
Or is it better to get out there and romp!! Sugar, who was adopted 6 years ago, loves the snow.
Leigh's Pekes say "get out in it!!" If you mom can dig you a path, all the better!! We don't have snow yet, but I think some Pekes are dreaming about it. Look for more snow Pekes tomorrow.
Pudgie came to PVPC from a shelter where he was as a stray. He had one very large eye and it needed to be removed. Once he came to us, he went to the Peters for fostering-- he never left! I can see why-- just look at his face. :-)
Pudgie has a brother named Chompers who is part Peke.
They are good friends and love snuggling with dad.
Just look at them cuddling!
Rest up, sleepy heads-- you're going to have a visitor.
We received a request to help this Peke and the Peters boys are going to help!! He doesn't have a name yet, but they are going to name him once they see what his personality is like. What would you name him?? Thank you, Chompers and Pudgie for offering to help!
My friend, Melinda, lives in Australia. Of course, that means it's hot at Christmas since they are below the equator. I keep forgetting that. Here is her Moi Moi who is attempting to play with a stick, but it's really beneath her to do this. Or is this Coco??
The plants are thriving with the warm weather.
The orchids are blooming!
I think this is Coco-- am I right, Melinda. I get them confused! Maybe it is Moi Moi-- I used to think I could keep them straight, but in a picture, I just can't do it.
She is vegging in the sunshine, and she'd really like to get into the flower bed.
But, her mom and dad put up a little fence around it.
Otherwise, Coco will get into it and eat the "fertilizer" (manure!).
Helping dad is hard work.
So a rest is in order.
The flower beds are so pretty-- and sometimes, you just have to keep the dogs out. If I have flowers in my back yard, they are in pots.
I'm sure the girls helped to decorate the tree.
There are a lot of dog ornaments on it. Pretty!! I see an ice cream cone, too.
Are there presents for you? I'm sure there will be!
Missy came into foster care a short time ago and was temporarily in Harrisonburg, VA. She was vetted by Lucinda (Harris Animal Hospital, Roanoke) and did great. She's a young Peke who only weighs 9 pounds!
She was terrified in the shelter and is still skittish with new people. But, she is learning that people love her and that she is safe now.
She went to her Richmond foster home last week and if you double click on this picture, you can see she has settled right in.
She is small, but has no trouble jumping right up on a chair. It's more comfortable than the floor.
She has also found a little soft bed to curl up in. I know she'll settle in quickly and be ready to go. But, I would be surprised if she ever leaves her foster home!
I just received two more pictures of Missy and her new friend, Maddie (who is visiting for the day).
Her foster mom, Amee, said she is so sweet and her BIG personality is beginning to come out. She was on the bed and saw herself in the mirror-- oh, if only a video camera was near by! Missy likes the other dogs in the house and is rolling over for belly rubs. Oh, we just love this!
Is it December already? Oh, my, this year has flown by!! We'll begin the month with an adorable Peke!
Chloe was turned into rescue 2 1/2 years ago. Jeanne picked her up and she knew just where she needed to go. We had an applicant who wanted a young, black and white Peke-- Chloe was ten years old and white.
Her new mom loved her right away! Chloe is a very pampered, sweet girl. Her mom said she is most thankful this year for Chloe. She said, " I will be eternally grateful to the wonderful foster mother who drove to
Williamsburg to pick her up-- so she would not end up at the pound. We will always love Jeanne for bringing us together!!!! You are the best
foster mom EVER!!!!!!!"
After dinner, she wanted to sit near the door-- she had her sweater on-- but I still see the bows!
Here is the latest picture of Chloe-- she had a spa day. Her mom had people over for dinner on Thanksgiving and one asked her when she was going back to London for a visit. Her reply was that she didn't have any real reason to go to London or anywhere else. She said Chloe would be 13 on Valentine's Day and London will always be there, but Chloe won't. Her friend thought she was nutty-- but I totally understand what she was saying. I guess I'm nuts, too.
Could you leave this one to go on a trip Oh, she is so cute!!
