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.

PEKES AND CANCER
This is my grand-Peke, Wicket. He hasn't being doing great lately, coughing a lot. So, we took him in to the vet and his exam seemed fine. We did an xray and that wasn't so fine. He has a tumor in his lung. We are doing more tests on Tuesday, so we'll know more then. He is the sweetest boy, letting all the grandkids/bits crawl around him, go on adventures with him. He's been part of the family for my daughter's entire married life. We hope he has a lot more time.Lafite, Chris's Peke, has a rare protate cancer. He was neutered a long time ago, so that's not part of it. Non-neutered dogs are prone to this, but it's very rare for the rest. Lafite is the light of his mom's life.Dee's little Pooh came to her as an older girl. She was slowing down a bit, but that's normal for a 14 year old Peke. On a vet visit, it was discovered that Pooh has cancer. We don't know how long she'll be with her mom, but we hope it's a long time.
Why am I writing on this? First, I want you to lift up these owners and their precious Pekes. It's never easy to lose one, and we hope it won't be for awhile for them. Second, I want to learn more-- and so let me know if you have been through this and what you have learned. Pray for these sweet Pekes.
