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.

Check out the Peke competition at the Westminster Kennel Club. http://video.westminsterkennelclub.org/player/?id=1201627 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ TOFU This is Tofu. He was in a shelter in November, 2008 and his mom was told he was a Peke mix. She said she researched and think he is actually a Tibetan Spaniel mix-- but they're related to Pekes.
Tofu was enjoying playing in the back yard. I've had this type of ball for my dogs and mine won't play with them. But, Tofu is sure having fun!
I love this picture! He is running about the yard so fast that he's a blur!
My dogs have these balls, but they won't play with them. Tofu sure likes it though.
Tofu's mom said he had no training when she brought him home, even though he was about two years old. Thanks to obedience classes, two wonderful trainers and nonstop work, he is much calmer and better behaved. He'll always have allergies, which means a special diet and limited treats. He will always be an escape artist, too, which is why she walks him with an Ultra Paws Escape Artist harness. (http://www.ultrapaws.com/) She emailed Tofu's measurements and had the harness within days. It cost $35.95, plus shipping and handling. I haven't tried this, but am always looking out for good dog products!
I think Tofu likes his new home! (His mom has donated things to our foster dogs-- leashes, harnesses, food, toys, treats-- thank you!!)
