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.

Chewman was one of my loved foster dogs, so writing a farewell is harder.
Chewman came into rescue from a home in Maryland in 2005. He was beautiful and young. He needed a new home.
While he was with me, he was not a snuggle dog-- but when he went to his new forever home, he became one! He loves to be on his mom's lap. Many dogs have not had the love they deserve, but they learn how wonderful it is once they are in a new home and getting so much love.
Chewman was adopted into a family of Pekes! His mom had Pekes, his "sisters" (his mom's daughters) all had Pekes. A Peke loving family for sure.
He loved to visit the neighbors' dogs, too. They said he was a gentle spirited angel of a dog.
Chewman loved the babies in his family-- he was so sweet with them. He would lay by them and lick their faces. He loved to chase birds, he loved walks, he loved rides in the car. He loved life!
Chewman was diagnosed with cancer last July. He was on medications to keep him comfortable and last week, he suddenly got worse. His mom knew yesterday that it was time. Chewman gave her so much happiness, and his mom will miss him forever. Later, in his memory, she said she will foster older dogs that no one else wants. I know Chewman would love that. Little Chewman, you were so loved. Run free, now, little man.
