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.

MORE GIMMIE-- OR GIMMIE MORE!
Gimmie is still at the vet, but might come to his foster home today-- his brother Bernard is already there.
I went to visit and took him some chicken and rice-- he hasn't been eating. He needs to eat! My vet, Dr. Evans went to Chick-Fil-A and got a chicken sandwich for Gimmie. (I love my vet!) Gimmie ate half of it! I guess he has been used to people food. We'll work on that.
He didn't growl or snap at me today-- his pain level is much lower.
He even rolled over for a tummy rub. I was very careful to approach him gently and speak softly to let him know he was safe. The vet tech did give him a bath, so that horrible urine smell was gone. Hallelujah!
He kept rolling over so he was enjoying it.
He sat up and stuck his tongue out. So cute! He is 8.4 pounds, but not thin. He's just a very small boy.
He let me pick him up!! And I put him on my lap and held him-- and no growling. BIG STEP!!! He is still on IV fluid and meds. But, he's improving and will be with Tiffany and Mike for care. Oh, my, they are going to love this one just like they already love Bernard, his brother!
