 Can you believe December is just a day away??   Me either!
 That means it is time to decorate (some of you have already finished, I'm in process), and take wonderful Christmas Peke pictures.  Here is my Max.
 Pi was a good sport with her reindeer antlers on.   She is about 14 now, and such a great dog!  (She's my granddog.)
 Christmas flags will hang outside.
 Desi is ready to put up her autumn outfits.
 They are stunning just like she is, but...
 It's time to put them away.
Desi is ready to bring out the Christmas and holiday outfits.   Onslow is a good sport and so sweet, but Desi is really into it!    Share your pictures with me, because you know I LOVE doing Christmas blogs throughout December.   Send the pictures on!   (post on facebook, or in a message, or send them to me at   (I only download if I know you, so better to tag me on facebook with them.)   Christmas is coming!!

 Piper came into rescue 3 years ago this month.   He was 3 years old and was turned in by his owners.  I met them at the vet and saw the sweetest little Peke.   He was with me about 6 months and then he was adopted.
 He went to the greatest family  and they keep me updated on how he's doing.    (Foster parents know how wonderful this is to know their fosters have gone on to wonderful lives.  Pictures and updates are priceless!)   His new parents just celebrated his birthday-- they do this on the day he was turned into rescue.
 Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you.....   This is so special!
 Piper loves toys. And he received several for his birthday.
 Piper wrote me a short note:
We celebrated my birthday today. It is the day I came to rescue. My mommy and daddy spoiled me with a cake, cards and a new toy. Daddy brought me a monkey from Japan! 2016 is the Year of the Monkey but he said I could have it early.   My brother Sammy and sister Abbi played with it too. I got a small amount of my favorite birthday food, pizza!
Hope you and the other pekes are doing well.
 His sister, Abbi, joined the family shortly after Piper-- they are best friends!
Piper is thinking of the next holiday-- Christmas!   I wonder what he will get-- it will be wonderful I know!

 Cody is one of Desi's brothers.    He was all ready for Thanksgiving with his festive tie on.
 I love this picture-- Onslow had a stunning backdrop!   I don't think he's paying any attention to it though.
 He would rather be sleeping.
 He likes to go places with his family.   I saw him at the Peke meeting last week and he is so sweet.
 He is  photgenic and definitely partial to Desi.   She's his best friend.
 Rammi thought a nap was a good idea, too.   I think, after Thanksgiving, a lot of people think naps are a good idea!
 A walk in the woods -- just don't collect things in your beautiful coat!
 Sampson is doing so well.    His bloodwork is so much better and even though he's still small (8.5 pounds), he is alert and doing well.  (He is never going to be a big dog- he's just a tiny little man.)
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I think Sampson is already thinking about Christmas.   I'm sure it will be wonderful for this sweet one!

 Desi dressed up for Thanksgiving.
 She knows how much we all have to be thankful for.
She is thankful to our rescue-- after all, she was one of our foster Pekes.   She had some medical issues and was turned in so we could help her.
The best thing was that she was adopted by a vet!!   Desi gets all the care she needs.
Not only does she get great medical care, she has a huge wardrobe!
Her mom is her vet and her dad runs the clinic-- he loves all the Pekes, too (and helps with our "testy" ones).
Desi knows she is the princess even though she has to share her parents with other dogs who need them.
Her best friend is Onslow and he joined Desi's family when he needed neck surgery.   Then, he stayed-- like many others.    Desi knows she is special and that her mom loves her best.   She is thankful for that!

 From my family to yours...
 From little Pilgrims...
 and fluffy dogs...
 To all of you who  have supported our rescue...
 and who have encouraged us...
 To those who help us continue to save these little ones...
 From all of the Pekes who are still out there who need rescue...
I am thankful for you.    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

 Cosmo was joined by Penny (formerly Katrina of the Bristol 18).   She joined their family in 2010-- can it be 5 years already!  
 Cosmo likes to have his picture taken I think.
 JJ was a foster and I remember his foster mom saying he had been adopted when he was 3 and then the owner took him to a shelter at 6 years old.   It would be so nice if fosters could tell us what they have been through before we get them.    Phyllis fostered him 2 years ago--
 She told me then, "it would be wonderful for him to find a home where he stays forever."   Well, he got his forever home-- with his foster mom, Phyllis!    I'm so glad!   Look at that face.
 Penney adjusted so well to her new home when she was adopted -- and she loves her brothers.
 Yes, I think these dogs are comfortable in their home.   Relaxed, JJ? :-)
 And Cosmo looks very comfortable!
 They look like they sometimes just melt into the carpet.
 Penney is probably wondering what he is doing.
Cosmo obviously can relax anywhere.   This was last year and I think he'll do the same thing pretty soon when this year's tree goes up.    Are you all getting ready to send me Christmas Peke pictures?   I sure hope so!
