ALFIE, THE IRISH PEKE
This is Alfie, a Pekingese who lives in Ireland.
His owner wrote us asking why there were so many Pekingese that needed help. He didn't realize how many puppy mills this country has. He was amazed that people could abandon these precious dogs.
Alfie, that looks like a piece of furniture you're eating. It is a familiar puppy, teething thing. I have nice tables that have the marks of puppies teething on them, too.
That's better-- chew on your toy.
Alfie is a beautiful Peke! His owner said he is a lovely, happy, healthy and very good natured little dog. He loves playing with all his toys in succession-- he has four different balls, plus about ten other types of toys.
If he can sit at his owner feet and just veg, he is happiest. Alfie will be one year old on April 8. That's easy to remember for me, because it was my mom's birthday-- so an early HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALFIE!! It's good to know an Irish Peke! (I know Kenzo and Moi Moi would love to meet you-- they're in Australia!)
