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.
Chumley, like the dogs here, is a flat faced dog. That means it's tougher to breathe.
So many dogs who live with smokers are at risk for nasal and lung cancer. (I know this blog may cause some problems with people who smoke-- but smoke, second hand or otherwise, is just not good.) There is a greatly increased chance of malignant lymphoma. (If you have a cat, and they lick themselves to clean, they have an even higher risk, since they are licking in the toxins, also.)
Lucy Lu is in a home where there is no smoke. I'm so glad for that. Pets who live with smokers have increased risk for cancer, heart disease and respiratory disease.
Rocky and Furby-- sweet boys! But, they don't want to breathe in smoke.
Princess would definitely have issues with her tiny face and compromised health.
So, if you smoke, please smoke outside, away from your dogs. Protect them from smoke. Here are three articles to help you learn more.
Lucy Lu was adopted several weeks ago and I wanted to give you an update. Look at that happy smile when I had her at the vet-- sweet girl! She had been so neglected, but she was on the road to being a healthy girl!
She loves her new mom, Ellen!
Lucy Lu follows her everywhere, sleeps on the bed, loves going on walks, and meeting new friends.
This was a wonderful match-- happy mom, happy Peke!! 💗
