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.

JOYFUL HAS A DENTAL
I have so many "joy" pictures and I love using them when posting about Joyful Grace. This is a particularly happy picture!
Joyful Grace had bloodwork on Monday to see if she was doing better and could have a dental. She really needed one, and we knew she would feel better. Her bloodwork was good and she had her dental yesterday. She is missing quite a few teeth and lost a few more. Her lower jawbone is separated (broken), but it is fairly stable and she has no trouble eating, so they did not do extensive work to repair it. If she needs that later, we will do it then. For now, we want her to have a clean mouth, and be as comfortable as possible. She went home with her foster mom on Thursday afternoon.
Her foster brother, Rudy, was there, too. He's an older boy that came to us so he would not die in the shelter. But, he seems determined to live. Look at that face! Don't you want to kiss him? He loves his foster mom and likes to give her kisses.
My Kai Kai was there, too. He was getting bloodwork for his dental, too. Joyful must think he's cute, because she is gazing at him. Well, he is cute! I love my boy.
Joyful had several layers on, and I received a box of goodies for her the other day, so she will have more cotton layers under her sweaters. February and March can get cold here, so we will keep her very warm.
Look how well she is standing. She can run some, walk around easily, and her eyes are looking so good.
Whoops, she spotted Kai Kai again.
Oh, my, I think we have a doggy crush going on! You go, sweet Joyful!
