I wanted to update you all on my grandson. He's home now! Thank you all of you who prayed for this little one!! (He was almost 7 weeks early.) He was 5 pounds 2 ounces last Thursday and is doing well. Since my other grandchildren are: Lil Bit, Bitty Bit, and Drill Bit, I had to come up with a "bit" name since I now have "Four Bits." (Thanks for that name suggestion, Jane!) I finally came up with a name for him-- "Beach Bit." Since he lives near the beach, this seemed a good fit. I'll have to take him for a walk on the boardwalk once I begin to take care of him-- yep, I'm going to do that when my daughter returns to work. I may be a little slow on some other things, but I'm excited for him to know me well. Every grandmother's dream! My grandma name is "Moppy" so Moppy and Beach Bit will have lots of fun times together.
This beautiful Peke is Suet-Suet. His name is Cantonese for snow. He lives in Maryland is was born February 21, 1995, which makes him 15 years and 7 months old. He has slowed down some but is still a very valued member of his family.
His family takes him on trips with them. He was in Virginia Beach-- and walking on the boardwalk!
He went to see Neptune's statue-- and even had his picture taken on it!
Look how brave he is. Hello up there, Suet-Suet!
You can see he loves big dog biscuits. He gets a big one on Sunday morning and parades it around the first floor of the house before settling on the right place to eat it. (It takes him two days to eat it.)
Suet-Suet has to have to keep his fur cut short due to both its weight and heat tolerance. The heat this summer was very hard on him (and many other Pekes, too!), but he looks forward to the cold weather when his relatives (the "snowflakes") come to visit. I'm not a cold weather person, but I was even looking forward to snowflakes on those hot days we had. (Now that it's cooling down, I'm loving our weather!)
