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.

Cami Bear has been with me for a few weeks and he still wants chicken nuggets-- but I'm getting away with mixing in good dog food, grinding it all up and he loves it. He'll slowly get off the bad stuff. I tried going cold turkey to good stuff, but then I realized he must have been fed junk food all his life. He was going to win.
So, the sneaky approach is working-- mixing it up in my mini-grinder. He has put on a little weight (he lost some during his hunger strike). Of course, he also had kennel cough-- I was syringe feeding him to make sure he was getting fluids. His coat is getting softer and he's a sweet boy-- all 10.5 pounds of him.
He's so tiny next to our clan. That Max next to him-- he's almost ten now!
Kai Kai and Cami sleep on the bed-- Max has decided he should be up there also. Kai was there first, and Cami hopped up on the ottoman to the bed and went to curl up beside Kai Kai.
I didn't tell him he is being neutered today. It's going to be a big surprise-- he probably won't be happy with me tonight! Once he's better, he's going to his new home. His future mom is so excited!!
