PICNIC!! Part 1
The PVPC annual picnic was last Saturday. I've never seen so many Pekingese in one place. There were more Pekes than people! Above are two of our newest fosters-- Gizmo (to be called something else, since we have so many Gizmos!) and Toby.
This is Missy-- she had pink ear tips when she came into rescue. She is really a daddy's girl! Boy, does she love her daddy.
Every dog at the picnic was giving a toy. Sallie's grandchildren helped with this. I didn't get their pictures, but they were wonderful helpers! We hope they come back next year.
The dogs enjoyed their toys-- but they also had some of their own, like Lacy, who brought her own special toy.
Jimmie Cocoa did not want to be my friend that day, but I still got his picture. :-) HI, JIMMIE!
Here are Cinnamon and Joshua. I fostered Joshua and considered keeping him. My Scooter and Joshua were great friends. His parents are wonderful and stay in touch with me-- I love that!
I think this little one's name is Lady Vixen. Her markings are stunning! She really caught my eye.
And here is Ciara-- she was trying to help me take the picture! It meant I didn't get a good picture of her. She was in a shelter and I referred one of our applicants to go see her-- and they adopted her, which meant she went right to a home instead of coming into rescue first. They might want to adopt a friend for her!
Here is Wiley-- he was a real mess when he came into rescue, thin, not much hair, a sad looking boy. You can't even tell that this is the same dog! His parents have done an absolutely incredible job with him. (They were also one of the couple who won our "unsung hero" award at the picnic, as they now foster for us.)
Dian, our treasurer, has some beautiful Pekes-- and a Corgi and a Red Setter named Liam. (I'll do more on Liam in another blog.)
