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.

Darby came into rescue in September of 2008-- Amee offered to foster her. Darby stole her heart right away.
We would laugh and compare Darby to Starlight-- both "baby cujos."
They both loved their people, but strangers-- not so much.
Darby loved "her" baby (who is almost 4 now). And he loved her. It was a special bond.
Darby would romp in the snow with her two doggy sisters.
And snuggle for a nap with her buddy Sakks.
The three sisters would dress up for Halloween.
Her mom isn't sure what happened to Darby-- but it seems to have been a stroke. They took her to the vet and she was given fluids and meds. The next day, she was very agitated, so Amee picked her up and held her close-- and Darby died in her arms. Darby was so special to her and she went everywhere with Amee. Amee said, " My life was forever blessed when she came to me for fostering – everyone said
that I saved her – well that may be the case but she truly saved me – she was
the best. I don’t know what I will ever do without her." Our hearts go out to Amee-- we are so very sorry. Rest in peace, sweet Darby.
