KENZO AND MOI MOI
This is Moi Moi, an Austrailian Pekingese-- No, that's not another type of Pekingese-- she just LIVES in Australia. (I received an email from a friend who saw a Peke mix on a walk. She asked if it was a Peke mix-- and the owner said, "NO, THIS IS A NORTHERN PEKE!!! THEY ARE VERY RARE." I think the breeder must have seen her coming-- there are Pekingese, plain Pekingese. Not Australian Pekes, or Northern Pekes...... But, it gave me a laugh!)
Moi Moi means Little siter or little girl in Cantonese. She was adopted from a breeder in Australia who no longer wanted to use her. It was her ticket out!
And she has her little bed and a chance to be loved. Is this precious!
Kenzo is wondering who this is! He wants to check her out all the time. So, their parents put a leash on Kenzo and if Moi Moi needs time alone, Kenzo is leashed to something-- a door, a piece or furniture-- to give Moi Moi a break. She needs time to adjust to her new home.
They had to give her a bath even though she was just spayed-- they call it de-sexing in Australia. Moi Moi smelled so badly that they had to clean her up. She enjoyed the bath-- it felt so good to be clean
