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.
Little Diku was a year old when she got him-- he was a puppy mill survivor.
He had health issues like a URI and Ehrlichia, a tick born disease.
His mom tried every kind of dog food, and treats and he turned his nose to everything. Diku would only eat beef jerky-- but it was all made in China. There are no controls there on quality.
So, his mom began to research how to make healthy dog food and treats- and Grove Naturals was born. Diku had a compromised immune system, so he needed good food.
Olive joined the family. She was also a puppy mill survivor.
The puppy miller's words were "Take her, she is gonna die anyway." Olive made it! In fact, she turns 7 today! Happy Birthday, Olive!
Olive has a liver shunt and so her mom developed a treat that had pineapple and papaya, because these fruits are particularly good for her as they aid in digestions and keep her regular.
Oh, yes, she likes those treats!! What a beautiful girl-- she and Diku have come so far. And the company began because of the great love their mom had, and because of Diku's love for jerky. Look for a blog on their siblings tomorrow!
