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.

A WEEK AT THE FARM
I went to my daughter's farm for a week to help out while her husband was out of town. I got to be with my three grandchildren! LOVED IT.
I thought it would rain while I was there. You can look at these pictures from a previous visit and imagine yourself sitting on the porch, just watching and listening to the rain. BUT IT DIDN'T RAIN THIS TIME. It was HOT. And DRY.
I took all the dogs with me-- including sweet Sammy. We originally thought Sammy was about 8, but he is so active, so playful that we think he's younger. He is a strong boy, who loves to walk and you need a firm grip on his leash because he's ready to go! Look at these videos of him playing and tell me what you think-- he acts pretty young, doesn't he? Click here: YouTube - sammyplaying2Click here: YouTube - sammyplaying
He got his e-collar off and I took him his new foster home in N.Va. I miss him already. That's the hard part of rescue-- we have to keep letting them go.
I kept Ty with me-- he had a lot of practice walking on a leash. He's not crazy about it, but he walked along wtih Pi-Pi, one of my daughter's dogs.
He liked Kallie, too. Kallie tried to play with Sammy -- it was really cute.
Ty saw something in the distance. What was it?
He's looking under the fence for a better Peek-- or Peke. :-)
Oh, it's beautiful horses! My daughter has three horses and a pony.
She also has two Pekingese-- here's Lottie. She's over ten now and the queen there. She is actually related to the queen here (Cranberry). They're cousins-- must be something in the genes that makes them both want and demand to be queen.
Starlight helped the grandgirls do art projects. They were working with puffy paint-- I was hoping Starlight wasn't getting too close. I did NOT need a Puffy Paint Pekingese!
And then it was time to go home-- I had so much fun, and got to hold my 7 month old grandson a lot. I'm ready to go back! Where are you going this summer?
