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.

My friend Melanie has her own rescue (Mutts Matter Rescue) and has had many dogs, big and small, come through her home. Little Henry is one of them. Here he was, "watching" football and chewing on his football.
There are some dogs we foster that we just can't let go of and Henry stayed with Melanie and her husband, Brian. He was just a sweet boy!
Brian loved this one-- you can see the bond they had.
Henry came into rescue deaf and had major ear infections. He had several surgeries to help the infection and after his recent surgery, he seemed to be fine. But, then his heart rate dropped and he went into cardiac arrest. We know this can happen, but we're never ready when it does. Henry was such a young dog. His mom voiced what many of us think, " He was taken so suddenly, and life just feels very unfair right now. Unfair
that he can't live out his life with us; And that he didn't get to have as many
good years as he did bad, before we rescued him. We can only try and console
ourselves with the hope that he knows how we loved him. He was a very special
dog who brought so much love into our lives, and everyone he met. For those that
met "biggie" as he was known to us, you know how very special he was. There will
never ever be a dog like Henry. I just know that right now, heaven is lucky to
Your mom and dad miss you so much, Henry. Rest in peace, sweet boy.
