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.
I don't like writing this blog, but I do it as a warning. Snakes are coming out of their winter places and it's important to be on the look out for them.
Last year, Leslie and Doug's precious Lulu Belle was bit by a snake as it crossed a path that they walked a lot. They rushed Lulu to the emergency room and the vet was unable to save her (it's a long story, I won't go into it here, but it was awful).
Mike, Jojo and Annabelle's dad, said they found this one crawling up their front steps. I've had snakes try to come onto my screened porch in Florida when I lived there. They can climb and go places we don't expect.
Lulu was only 3 when she lost her life to a copperhead bite and I don't want another one to lose their life like she did. Her mom said it was okay to post this blog-- she is still hurting from the loss of her little girl, but hopes this post will save at least one life.
Lulu will always be in their hearts-- but the pain is there, too. I hope this blog will help us to be more watchful of these snakes that can injure our pets (and us!).
