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 over 15 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

Timothy came into rescue and is a sweet dog. He is a little hesitant with new people, but when they give him time, he trusts easily and loves a lot.
He has been going a lot of places with his foster parents. OH, strawberries!!
No, Mugsy, I don't think you can have any.
Mugsy has his dental and nasal fold surgery this week. (Some also call that eye fold surgery.)
The folds below his eyes were so large they were impacting his eyes. Over time, this can lead to scarring on the eyeball because of the constant irritation from the hair. A lot of Pekingese can benefit from this surgery and it can save eye trouble from happening later. The vet I use is excellent for this surgery-- you need to make sure that it is done well. You don't want too little or too much done to that area of the face/eye. Some vets refer you to an ophthalmologist for this.
