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.
Lexie has been here over a month and is feeling so much better. Next week, my vet will begin adjusting her medications to see how she does. She will be closely monitored. She lives each day fully and with joy and today, she discovered toys!
After she found it and was playing, I gently rolled it for her and she went after it!
And she brought it back to where I was sitting.
Now is this the cutest picture of her!?
Koko was not to be undone. She found a toy and ran around with it flopping and flying in her mouth.
She played with it until Max stole it from her! Max, the toy stealer-- yep, he lives here, too.
This is Tucker. I received an email from a shelter and they asked us to take him into rescue.
He's a bit of a mix-- but something about his eyes grabbed me. We took a vote with the board to see if we could help him and we could.
I found out that his owner had "too many dogs" so she took him to the shelter. He was in the shelter 6 weeks, so his time was limited. He was terrified there, but when he was out with other dogs, he was fine.
Tucker is in a temporary foster home, he enjoys the other dogs, ignores the cats, is housetrained, and loves to sit on your lap. I'll have more information once the vet evaluates him this week, but for now, he is safe. Welcome to rescue Tucker.
I know this is a Peke blog. So, I'm putting in a few Pekes. :-) Koko was watching Matt, my husband, cooking and she was hoping something would fall to the ground.
Lexie was watching me-- probably hoping I had something for her.
But, today's blog is about Puff Daddy. And it's about rescues working together. Puff Daddy was in a shelter near me, and they asked if I could help find a rescue for him. The Heartworm Project Rescue (who takes more than heartworm positive dogs) stepped up! He looked like he had no hope. He was miserable.
Puff Daddy began to feel better and his hair began to grow back. Look at him watching the person taking his picture-- do you see some hope there? I do.
Look at him now! His skin has healed, his hair has grown back.
The difference in his skin and his spirit is astounding! I LOVE when rescues work together!! Thank you to all who were involved.
