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.

CLEAN THE YARD!
I'm sure you all know to clean your yard and pick up dog poop on walks, but I thought a reminder was good. Not only do you not want to step in it-- it's just healthy to pick it up.
We have Bits and Pekes at our house, so I try to clean the yard several times a day. I don't want the Bits to step in it. And I don't want the dogs to roll in it, eat it, or play with it. Chumley will eat poop-- oh disgusting!
I don't want him to kiss the Bits if he's had a poop snack!
Cleaning up the poop can reduce the risk of: parvo, giardia, roundworms, hookworms (they are awful!), coccidia (this is one nasty parasite). Cleaning the yard each day will keep your pet healthier.
And if you have a dog like Chumley-- who likes poop-- you can reduce his "snacking" and give him healthy treats instead. :-)
