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.

I posted this on Jan.17, but Gizmo's mom sent me this video, so I wanted you to see what a happy boy he was while he was with them. He was there less than a year, but what a year of love and care it was. You can see the joy in his face and his step. http://youtu.be/Uun9ESIk12E
Gizmo came into foster care almost a year ago-- his owners loved him a lot but were unable to financially provide the care he needed. I know that happens and it's so sad to watch people give them up-- but it helps the dog to get care. His previous owners sent his winter coats, treats, blankets and lots of information on him. They really cared.
He went to live with Peggy and Terry and they adored this boy. He didn't see, but knew how to get around. After Christmas, he took a turn for the worse, stopped eating as much and his bloodwork wasn't good. They didn't know if it was cancer or a massive infection. They were trying to determine the cause (cancer or infection) yesterday, but
last night he took a radical turn for the worst and had to put him down. His mom said, "He
was a wonderful dog and putting him down was like turning out a light. So sorry
to send you a note like this. Thank you so much for sending us one of the
nicest dogs we've ever had."
You will be missed, Gizmo. Rest in peace, little man.
