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.

GRACE AND TED--OLD MARRIED COUPLE
Grace came into rescue in 2011. She was about 6 years old and a beautiful little girl. Her mom calls her and Ted "Mr. and Mrs. Roundhead." She wrote this blog for me-- here it is!
Grace has been with us almost 4 years now, and she & Ted are like a
little old married couple. She is 11 and he will be 10 in December. They have
their routines and things they like & dislike, they have their quirks and
they get on each other's nerves occasionally.
Here they are "taking the sun" (getting some vitamin D?), which they do daily.
Their biggest task each day is to stand (or rather lay down!) and guard the
property from the front window.
You never know when someone will walk by with their dog!! Then they go
into action! You can see the dirty windowsill and the opaqueness of the
windows, from them barking! LOL
Even the cats occasionally check things out, but mostly the cat tree is
commandeered by the Roundheads. (Huey the Maine Coon)
Grace hates having her picture taken.
Ted loves it!!
Uncle Dale came to visit and brought cousin Jake, a few weeks back. Jake hasn't
had a lot of experience with little dogs or cats, so he mostly kept his distance
and watched. LOL
Ted's most favorite "job" is keeping the backyard free of squirrels. A
NEVER-ending task, as we have lots of big trees and fertile squirrels! LOL If
he can't be outside to patrol the backyard, he tries to watch from inside. Here
he is with Caleb, who is used to Ted "being in touch with his feline side". LOL
Ted's nemesis!!! They beg outside the window on the deck railing, hoping for
Ted also likes to occasionally do some excavating in the backyard. Doesn't he
look so pleased with himself?!
Grace doesn't care about squirrels or digging holes. She just likes her home
& her routines. And we love her for it.
