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.

Chloe belonged to my friend Sarah.
Chloe took guarding the door very seriously.
She even called in recruits-- Daisy helped, too.
She lived with other Pekes, too-- Sam Sam was one of them. Her mom loves rescue dogs.
Chloe started to feel unwell yesterday and today she passed away. She was diagnosed with ITP-- Immune Mediated Thrombocytopeania. It can come on for no known reason and it is where the immune system in the body begins to attack itself. The platelets drop dangerously low and bleeding, bruising and blood loss can occur.
For sweet Chloe, it came on fast and there was not much that he could be done. Sarah's little princess was gone.
Chloe was only 12, but I'm sure Floyd and Starlight met her to show her the way.
