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.

CRANBERRY AND ABNER
My Cranberry is almost 12 years old, and has degenerative disc disease. She doesn't get around well, but loves to be outside.
Abner was out there with her-- but stayed out of reach.
Cranberry doesn't have much patience. Her nicknames are Crankyberry and Crankenberry-- she can be a pill especially since she doesn't get around well anymore.
She has good moments though and will roll around, and be happy. It is hard to watch her age though-- a fine line of knowing if she is okay or not. (She doesn't seem to be in pain, but when she is, I give her tramadol.)
She does get grumpy if Abner (or any other dog) gets too close-- Abner has learned to stay away.
Can someone help me? :-) Don't worry, Abner, I'll protect you.
Just leave cranky Cranberry alone.
Abner is faster, so no problems there. He can run circles around Cranberry-- and on Saturday, he'll be going to his new home. I know he'll bring so much joy there-- and Cranberry will have no puppy here to harass her. :-)
