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.

Shark came into rescue from a Maryland shelter in 2009. We thought he was about five years old, so he should have had many years to live. We tried to change his name to Clark, but he would have none of that, so Shark it stayed.
Shark was adopted to a wonderful family in Richmond-- they had boys and Shark adored them.
Shark began to have trouble yesterday (Wednesday) morning and they rushed him to the doctor. They did many tests on him, but he died of cardiac arrest today. The vet said he had a lung issue that affected his heart. His family is so saddened by his sudden death. Our hearts go out to them. Rest in peace, sweet Shark.
