Thank you,Piggy and Sebastian! See your picture at the bottom!

Diane sent a donation in memory of her precious Peke, Prissy, who passed away in August of 2015.  
Tinsley made a donation to help our Pekes.  He was adopted from us in 2013, after he became a "foster failure."    
He wants to help the Pekes in rescue now!
 My heart was touched tonight.  I received a message from Ginger-- she was making a donation in memory of sweet Lexie, my foster girl who died of IMHA.
 I loved her so much-- and she was quite a warrior in her battle.   In fostering her, with this disease, she taught me so much about IMHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) and about life.
I am making a donation in memory of my daughter's Pandy.   She was about 17 when she died this year and she was so loved by my daughter.  
Sweet Doolin and Gizzy-- they just love each other!
 Gracie Lu came to me after her mom died in 2008.   Jane fostered her and then adopted her and Gracie had a wonderful life.  She passed away last year, but she lives on in the love her mom had for her.   Jane made a donation in her memory and in Joyful Grace's memory.   I'm sure they are both playing in heaven now!  Joyful below, probably still has a lot of outfits there!
 If you make a donation of any amount this month or/and next month, and send me a picture of your dog/dogs, I'll post their picture on this blog, which will be reposted every few days as new pictures/donations come in.   I hope it ends up being a really long blog!   You can make a donation in memory of one of your beloved Pekes, or for one that you have now.   It can be to honor someone you love.   Once you make a donation, send me a picture/name of your pet to   We want to end this year with JOY!
 My crew wanted to make a donation in memory of Joyful Grace.   Kai Kai and Chumley are both PVPC alumni (they all are!) and they want to help.
Whoops, that's not a Peke, but she loves the Pekes here.
Floyd wants the end of the year donations to come on in.
Starlight, the Princess, thinks her cuteness might help.

What a walk down a year with beautiful Joyful Grace and all those who live on in our hearts as well as our rescue babies who occupy our hearts and homes now.

And what a job rescue does to make this all happen.

It has been a very very hard year but our hearts stay steady and our prayers still encompass those that we care so much for in their hours of need of solace, healing and comfort knowing so many of us appreciate, love and support them.
