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.

Here are some updates. Anna was in vet ICU after having exploratory surgery on Wed. She didn't do well for a few days, but when I visited her today (I went yesterday, too!), I got her to eat and I used a syringe to get her to drink-- so they let me bring her home. She is in her little bed and we'll take good care of her here.
This is our latest foster dog! I named her Nutmeg for the holiday season-- she is 9.8 pounds, a little scared and has a little attitude, but she will come along just fine. She was abandoned at a campground in Virginia Beach and the owners had left to go back north.
Look at this smile!
Starlight is on seizure medication after her major seizure on Tuesday. She had to go to the vet Wednesday and Thursday for monitoring, but is home today and doing okay. It will take some adjusting, watching her meds, but she'll be fine. She threw her back out a little with the seizure, so she's a little wobbly. She is resting on her Daddy's lap-- her favorite place to be. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
PRESS RELEASE: In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of dogs.
This substance, called "amobacter caninii" has been linked with the following symptoms in females: Reluctance to cook, clean or do housework, a reluctance to wear make-up, good clothes or high heels.
Reluctance to spend money on home or car repairs until after 'Baby' has new collars, leashes, beds, treats, food, blankets or toys.
"Amobacter caninii" usually results in long hours away from home and exhaustion which may lead to a loss of physical contact with other humans (especially husbands and boyfriends). "Amobacter caninii" is thought to be addictive, driving the need for additional sources - this may lead to a "pack mentality" or like the potato chip commercial, "you can't have just one".
Beware! If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about dogs for hours. Surgeon General's Warning: Dogs are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense. Linda firstname.lastname@example.org://www.potomacpekes.org/
