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.

CHI-CHI AND LEANNE
Leanne came into rescue in March. Her owner asked us for help to get Leanne out of a tough situation. (Her husband had Alzheimer's and was not always predictable, so Leanne needed a safe place.) Even though Leanne was older (15), we were happy to help.
ChiChi was in a shelter in Maryland. Her owner was found but didn't claim her. She was 15 years old, also. The first picture we received showed a scared, confused dog-- you wouldn't know she was the same girl. She is now so relaxed and loved. And she doesn't look 15! (She had a microchip, so we were able to know more about her age.)
I met Leanne at the Peke meeting-- and Floyd was there, too. I love this picture-- two old Pekes still wanting to be affectionate and open to new friends.
Leanne and Chi-Chi are now sisters-- they both are part of our forever foster group. When we got them and knew they were both 15, we knew they just needed a safe, loving place for the rest of their lives.
Robin, their foster mom, adores them. They both are active seniors! In fact, Leanne has a new job as sous chef-- she helps when Robin bakes! Yes, it means she gets a little flour on her, but who doesn't! Thank you, Robin, for caring for these sweet girls-- you are the best!
