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.

2014 PICNIC-- PEKENIC!
We had a wonderful picnic! Over 85 people there and I think almost the same number of Pekingese! If you love Pekes, this was the place to be!
Every person who signed in got a Peke bag-- it had a wrist band ("I love my rescue dog."), a measuring cup, treats, mints and more. Robin ordered these and I think they are wonderful!!! We have a few left over---
Jim and Matt (my husband) were the grill masters again. They do this every year and I think they enjoy it-- I did finally get over there to grab a burger!
The sign was up and everyone came to have fun!
We had a silent auction and this was one of the outfits that was there. It looks pretty stunning on this little guy!! We had dog beds, outfits, a glass Pekingese cutting board, a PVPC Thirty-One bag, jewelry.... so many things to buy to support Peke rescue!
As we presented the foster dogs there, I had to stand on the bench so people could see me-- I know, I know, I'm short!
Little Miss Suki was adopted last week and came to her first Peke picnic. Are you waiting for your lunch?
Maddy sent me a lot of pictures. He's becoming a pro at the picnic routine. He was adopted at the picnic, so it's a special time for him!
Butters was there-- he always makes a hit. He is a PVPC alumni, too. His mom and dad drove from NYC to come. (Abner's parents drove from New York also- and we had two men from Indiana!)
Oh, the cuteness at the picnic was overwhelming.
Coltrane made an appearance-- he looks like a mini-St. Bernard. He's available for adoption.
This stunning boy is a service dog-- he's come before with his official vest on. Beautiful!
He was watching all the dogs--
Phoebe was beautiful!
So many Pekes-- this is pretty Girl-Girl.
And they all got along! We had NO fights!
Just Pekes getting to know each other and loving every minute of it.
I think this is Bingo--
Chester hung out in his colorful playpen when he wasn't being held by someone.
A new friend showed up--
Blond Bit helped at the photo shoot-- there were flower props, hats, crowns.... More on that later!
Abigail was so happy!
She was with her friends-- new friends-- I see a photo shoot hat there. Must be the sheriff!
And at the end of the day, they were sharing secrets about how much fun they had. We all did!
