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 PAULA POUND PUPPY
Paula came to us from a Maryland shelter. We were told she was an "unaltered six year old" who was listed as adoptable. We got her and she was NOT six.
In fact, through a lot of "roadways" we found her original owners and this was a picture of Paula when she was younger.
Marilyn was her foster mom, and her Jelly took Paula under his wing. He would curl up with her to give her company.
It turned out that Paula was almost 15 when we got her (we found out her birthday) and she was blind and almost deaf. But, did we turn out back on her-- not a chance. She became a permanent foster that lived 9 1/2 months of love and care and good food and lots of attention.
Yesterday, I talked to Marilyn who felt Paula was not doing well. Today, she declined rapidly and died about 1:00 in the afternoon. Marilyn loved this little girl so much, and I know it is a huge loss for her. Thank you, Marilyn, for all you did for her and for giving her over nine months of incredible care. She was so blessed to have you. Rest in peace, little one-- and run free!
