Must Love Pekes is a blog for those who love Pekingese, their looks, their antics, their personalities. It is written by me, Linda, and I have been rescuing Pekingese for 14 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

Nor'easter Hits the Coast
We have sure had some rain. We had a nor'easter hit us. If you don't know what this is, it's a storm that brings massive amounts of rain and wind. The winds yesterday were over 50 mph, and the storm comes from the northeast, hence the name. If you live anywhere near the Virginia coast, you have been wet -- unless you haven't been outside. I have been outside. I have been to the vet-- twice. I have been to a store. I have been outside with the seven dogs here-- I have been wet!
This is what the yard usually looks like-- with dogs sitting in chairs outside in the sun. I love to sit in my back yard, see my trees, see my little stream. I haven't been able to sit outside today or yesterday. And the water level is up......
WAY UP! It's past the fence, almost to the deck. We have a large slope in the yard, usually a great playground for the dogs-- yesterday it could have been a playground for ducks!
Max and BB are cozy in the rocking chair. BB is wherever another dog is-- in the chair, on the ottoman. When she's adopted, she'll need a friend.
The water came up and the wind was blowing all kinds of limbs down-- so the dogs' visits outside were as brief as possible, with me supervising. I love being wet. NOT.
I refrained from running and jumping in the water. The dogs looked at the water and headed back inside-- smart dogs!
Starlight curled up on Daddy's lap-- one of her favorite places to be.
Look at that face-- I know this drives Shanyn crazy-- she really wants to hold Starlight. Starlight won't let her. It hurts Shanyn's feeling a lot!
Do you hear that Starlight? Do you care?
Max is glad to be dry.
So is sweet little Anna--- also known as Anna Joy or Anna-banana. :-) She's recovering so well from her surgery.
Scooter is content to be dry, too.
Starlight has moved to the dog bed-- any dry place is fine with her. I'd like to be dry, too. Maybe I'll let them go out on their own next time! :-)
