 Bear came out of a shelter in 2005.    He was like a "junkyard dog" and the shelter was afraid of him, but I knew there was something under all that hair and dirt.    He was shaved down and when I went back to the vet, Bear came to me and gave me kisses-- stole my heart!     He was adopted to a wonderful family and lived with them since 2005.  
Bear was diagnosed with kidney disease and this morning, after much treatment and care, he passed away.   His mom and sister Peke, Cassie, are devastated.    He was an  incredibly sweet boy and loved so much.  Rest in peace, sweet boy.

RIP sweet Bear! You will be very missed! You were such a cutie and very much walked to your own beat (peke-a-tude?!) Run with the angels!

So sorry for the loss of precious Bear. A "rags to riches" story. Glad he got a second chance with a wonderful family for many years. RIP Bear!

I am just seeing this now and so sorry to hear about Bear. What a wonderful story. We just love our pekes with our whole hearts and so hard when we lose them. Thank you for being wonderful peke parents, siblings! Thank you Bear, for being an excellent companion. You will never be forgotten.
