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.

Ferbie (with his friend Barney) was my friend Melanie's original Peke when I met her. She applied to adopt Barney and that began a rescue friendship.
Ferbie, here after a bath, was 14 years old when he died after having a stroke last week. It left him unable to walk or be the Peke he used to be.
Ferbie's mom, Melanie, fostered and worked with our group but left to form her own rescue, Mutts Matter Rescue.
Her husband is involved, too (here with a foster dog) and they have rescued over 1,000 dogs.
I know Ferbie is proud of the work his mom does. He welcomed many foster dogs into his home and shared his mom and dad's love with so many. You will be deeply missed, Ferbie. You took part of your mom's heart with you.
