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.

Cole came into rescue in October of 2011. Kay and Claretta picked her up and she came to me temporarily. I love the black ones! (I know, I know, I love them all.)
Cole went to Molly for fostering and she couldn't bear to let her go. She just fell in love with Cole-- and Cole loved her right back..
In August 2012, Cole was rushed to the emergency vet for internal bleeding. She
ended up needing to have her spleen removed due to a cancerous mass, and the
doctors said she would live for 2-6 months.
Here's what Molly wrote about her Cole: "Since her surgery, Cole has been taking K9 Immunity Plus supplements
(Aloha Medicinals), and she is actually more playful than ever before. Cole just
moved to a new apartment complex, and she loves her balcony and all of the
walking trails around the pond. Most of Cole's neighbors think she is a puppy,
but she likes to think of herself as a little black lab. Cole has recently started "playing tennis". Evidently Cole knew how to play
tennis from her previous life, so she was very excited to see a tennis ball show
up at her house. This is one of the many reasons why Cole's mom and dad are
constantly encouraging their friends to adopt an older dog (Cole was adopted at
age 9). They may not learn new tricks, but they probably have some old ones up
Every day with Cole is a blessing because she brings her family so many smiles.
On March 25th, Cole will have survived 7 months since surgery. :) We hope Cole has a lot longer with her family. Like Molly, I love the older ones-- they have so much to give.
