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.

FAREWELL MAGGIE and TAYLOR
This is Maggie. She was my cousin, Carol's Chihuahua. Maggie was loved so much. Maggie had a wonderful life on earth and Carol wrote a poem in honor of Maggie.
I remember when you were very small
When you came to live with me
Two pups that fit in the palm of my hand
Was quite a sight to see.
I remember when I trained you
To sit and come and stay
When you learned it oh so fast
It really made my day.
I remember teaching you to swim
You disliked the water so
But you stuck with it did so well
You put on quite a show!
You never snapped or snarled at anyone
Or ever bit a stranger
Your heart was warm and loving
So never was there a danger.
I remember you went to "snake school"
To learn with all the others
Their jeers turned into cheers
When you passed with flying colors!
You were demanding, manipulative, and controlling
An "alpha dog" they say
But you were quite the charmer
And you always got your way.
Some may call you spoiled
And some may call you rotten
But you were such a joy to me
You'll never be forgotten.
I'll miss you more than ever
And "Tucker" will be fine
So go peacefully my baby
Sweet, sweet girl of mine.
And when you cross the Rainbow Bridge
And meet Jesus the Son
I have no doubt His words will be
"Come in, come in .........well done".
RIP Maggie" REST IN PEACE, sweet Maggie girl.
I'm so sorry to have to put another blog on one of our adopted foster dogs who has passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. This is Taylor. This picture was taken about two years ago when he was ten years old. His Dad wrote a little bit on him that I am including in his farewell.
This is Taylor shortly after they got him as a foster dog. Here's what his dad wrote: "Taylor was found as a stray on the streets of Wilmington, NC about 12 years ago. He was taken to the shelter, where he tested positive for heartworms. He was scheduled to be destroyed, but before they could do it, someone fell for his spirit and playfulness and decided to just try to find him a rescue group to take him. Somehow, they found ours in Va, and the group called us. My folks lived in Wilmington, so it seemed like fate was pointing us to foster this little guy back to health. My wife & I decided that, with four other dogs & two cats already, we were NOT keeping him. She went to pick him up and didn't even make it out of NC before she called to tell me how wonderful he was. I stood firm for almost a week before I threw in the towel & renamed him. It was a decision that we never regretted. He fit well in our lives, and in our little family. He was our one dog who just loved being a dog.He was loved by everyone in the neighborhood, and the kids next door called him "Taylor the Brave". Thanks again.Sam & Michele" REST IN PEACE, SWEET TAYLOR. I KNOW YOUR FAMILY WILL MISS YOU.
