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.

STARLIGHT MAKES A FRIEND
Everyone knows Starlight if they have followed this blog.
She was my foster dog, who came to me in March of 2008. She was 3 years old. She is ten now and is our girl-- she would not let anyone adopt her, so we did.
She was in rough shape and had not been treated well. And she had an attitude!
Not with us-- she trusted me right away, which was amazing. She loved my husband on sight!
But, for the most part, the rest of the world had to earn her trust. So, we tell people not to touch her when they come, even if she comes up to them.
Sandy came to visit the other day. We sat on the floor in the family room, and guess who came to her!
Yep, you guessed it-- Starlight.
I told Sandy that no matter what Starlight did, not to reach for her. Just let Starlight get used to her.
Starlight was jumping up and giving Sandy kisses! It was amazing! This just isn't Starlight!
Chumley was looking on to see what the fuss was all about-- he's so friendly, but this was NOT Starlight's normal behavior. Every so often she lets her guard down and warms up. Of course, the next time Sandy comes, Starlight will probably be cujo girl, but for this visit, Sandy was thrilled-- Starlight, you are always a mystery to us!
