 Gus came into rescue almost 2 years ago.  He was in horrendous shape-- thin, flea-ridden, full of worms, skin a mess-- but oh, so sweet.
 Jeanne  was his foster mom and with her care and love, Gus thrived.  
 He was adopted to a friend in New York City.  Some may say, "Why New York?"   Sometimes, we know people and they have been with PVPC while in Virginia and we are thrilled they want to adopt.   (And sometimes, we just love an application and we allow our fosters to move a little further away.   My Abner moved to the perfect home in NY-- and what a life he has now!)
 Gus has become friends with other Pekes (and some are PVPC alumni).   Gus and Willy Wonton posed for pictures at the picnic.  Willy is one of Gus' buddies.
 Gus is so loved in New York that his friends made him an anniversary cake!  WOW, I wish I could have gone to his party.   That cake looks delicious!
Other friends also  made him a cake.   WOW!   Gus sure is loved up there!!  Happy Anniversary Gus!!

 Starlight heard that Camp Runamuck would be going on for the week-end.  So, she tried to hide.  (I know I've used these two pictures before, but they just fit the story. haha)
 Are they here yet?
 That annoying Chocolate Lab puppy they have is so annoying.   Gigi "G" can just stay home, Starlight thinks.
 Gigi always wants to be Starlight's friend.
 But, Starlight wants nothing to do with it.
 She was giving little snarls to let Gigi know what she was thinking.
 Can she go away??   (And yes, that is Starlight's personal bouncy seat.)
 Gigi is trying to sneak around for a side attack.
 I'm over it, Mom.  I'm telling you!
Gigi gives up and goes to grab a pink dog pillow.
 Gigi says, "I didn't do anything.  I'm just trying to be her friend."     I fully suspect that Starlight will have more "attention" from Gigi later.    Camp Runamuck ends today-- so Starlight can sleep and relax.

August 26 was National Dog Day-- and a lot of people posted pictures of their wonderful dogs.  So, I am just going to share the pictures with little commentary.   Enjoy!!  Benny and Pixie are both adopted from us.
Everyone knows my Starlight.
My Chumley-- just hanging out.
My heart dog-- Kai Kai.
Peanut came for a visit!  
 Whoops!   That's not a Peke! ;-)
My Max is an old boy now.  He can be a bit grumpy, but he is so loyal.
Schmoo is so cute-- he's one of our PVPC alumni.
Margie's gang-- hanging out at the door, guarding the neighborhood.
My incredible vet tech's Barach-- she rescued him and has done amazing things!  
Sophie-- PVPC alumni!    So loved now!
Nicky, Lexie and Paddy--happy crew!
My first foster, Cosmo, with his brother Winston.  They get to the beach more than I do!
Fia's crew celebrating the day.
Freddie-- so many of us adore him!
Barbara's sleepy one-- looks so comfortable!
Irish's sweet duo.   Love the eyes!
Moe and Elwood-- Elwood was one of my foster dogs-- so cute!
Camden and Elwood.   Both PVPC alumni.
Sugar-- have you been shopping?
Jules and Pearl-- more PVPC alumni!!
Princeton and Clarence-- PVPC alumni.   We have so many that have been helped and found their forever homes because of so many in our rescue group-- what would we do without all the volunteers, foster homes, loving adopters!
Max, one of my adopted Pekes- and his buddy Ug-Lee.
Hope you had a wonderful National Dog Day!

 I know you all thought I would keep Madeline-- I was tempted.   But, she needed a playmate-- and all my dogs are 10-12 years old, seniors.   They didn't want to play.
 Micky was adopted and lives near me-- he was young and needed a friend.  Could this be a match?
 They met and did fine together.  And then...
 the play began!!
 Madeline took breaks to play with her special tennis ball.
 And then they played some more.
 Are you going to share your ball?
 Or just play some more?
 I think she will share, but the tennis ball will always be close by.
These two are adorable-- and becoming better and better friends.  It's what I wanted for sweet Madeline!   I'm so glad she has a friend!  (And Micky is SO cute-- I just want to kiss his face!)
