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.

Floyd has the right idea when it's in the 90s. Stay on the air conditioning vent.
Gaby (formerly Gabriel) lives in South Dakota now. He was adopted by a friend of mine who loves her pets!! She has a horse, chickens, dogs, and a pig! I don't know how hot it gets in South Dakota, but the cool floor probably feels great.
Benjamin and Kai Kai think the tile feels great.
In the summer, when temperatures are rising, it can be almost too hot to breathe! And if you're a Pekingese, with a flat face, it is even more difficult. They should be outside only for a short time. They can over heat quickly. And the asphalt-- that can get so hot that it can burn their feet.
Jasper is catered to and so loved. He is one of our forever fosters. He stays inside when it's hot. (And only goes out with his mom.)
Mr. Waddles only goes out for short times. As dogs get older, it's even harder to regulate their breathing and temperature when it's hot outside. So, be cautious with your pets during the summer's hot days.
