This is Woogie. His mom and dad just volunteered to foster for us. I know a Peke will come in soon that needs help. Woogie is from Turkey!! His mom was working there and this little Peke came in to the vet. His dad was used to German Shepherds-- and Pekes aren't even close to a Shepherd!!
But, who could resist this face? His mom was enthralled with him, and her voice changed as she told her husband about him. She shared funny things he had done, new friends he made, how he had a hard time climbing up the curb.
As time went on, they both began reading about Pekingese. They read that Pekingese like to survey a large area from up high. So, his mom began to hold him up over a six foot fence to see what was on the other side. He enjoyed it tremendously! So, it became a daily occurance to observe "his dominion."
(Oh, this is the look where you give them anything they want!!) Woogie can be a rascal-- he loves to bound up to dogs who are much bigger and he can be very intimidating, snarling and carrying on. (Can't you just see this-- it's "so Pekingese!") He also is a wonderful guard dog, alerting his parents that a stranger is at the door. He likes to take walks and will perform a special 'move' that his mom and dad call the "Bronco-Snook" where he behaves like a wild horse broncoing around in circles and kicking his back legs. I think I've seen this in other Pekingese.
