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.

Douggy-- New Lessons
With each foster dog, I learn something new. It might be small. I've gained a lot of medical knowledge from the dogs. Sometimes, more than I want to know. When Douggy came into rescue, he was pretty sick. He needed breathing treatments twice a day.
So, to the vet I went-- twice a day. I am not a "get up and go" person. I get up early, feed dogs, have my coffee, read the paper, have some quiet time, check my emails-- and then I might think about getting dressed. But, going to the vet early every day totally threw that schedule out the window.
My vet said she would loan me her nebulizer and I could just do it at home. (I love my vet clinic!) Douggy was so good with the treatment. He would just lay beside me as I blew the misted air into his face, to soothe and heal his sinuses, throat, lungs. What a great dog he is. He would actually fall asleep!
And he's so much better. He found this child's chair in my foyer. It has a Pekingese afghan on it. He loves to get on chairs. And even though this one is small, he decided to try it out.
