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.

FAREWELL LULU BELLE
Lulu Belle was one of our adopters' Pekes. She was a beautiful girl and loved SO much.
Her parents thought she would enjoy a Peke brother-- and they adopted Gimmie.
They had to metal pictures made of them both-- they are there for everyone to see.
Lulu Belle wasn't too sure about Gimmie at first, but then they became great friends.
They could often be found near each other, chasing each other or just vegging out together.
Lulu Belle was on a walk yesterday with her family, when she was bit by a copperhead snake. Her mom and dad rushed her to the emergency vet where treatment was begun immediately.
Instead of laying around with her buddy, Gimmie, Lulu Belle was fighting for her life. After less than 24 hours, Lulu Belle passed away. The snake venom was too much for her little body.
Lulu Belle was the love of her mom's life. Her parents are devastated. We are so incredibly sorry. Our hearts are heavy as we all say good-bye to this sweet girl. Our thoughts are with her parents and little brother, Gimmie. Rest now, sweet girl. You will be so missed.
