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.

JOYFUL LOVES RUDY
Joyful is being fostered with Rudy. They are both in a foster home with Sherry, who loves the seniors. In fact, she also has Daisy and Huri. They get exceptional care there. Can you find Joyful in this picture? haha She is really snuggled up-- it's cold here in Virginia.
Joyful wants everyone to know about her foster brother, Rudy. He needs help.
(Daisy is watching Rudy wander the yard.) Rudy is such a sweet boy.
Rudy had an ear biopsy last week and the results came in today.
Rudy has cancer in his ear canal, and if we do not do something, the cancer will spread and he will be in a lot of pain. (We would not let him suffer.)
The surgeon has said he can remove Rudy's ear canal-- he believes the cancer is just in that area and the surgery would remove it all. The survival rate is very high for dogs that have this surgery.
The surgeon is very good and is giving us a big discount to do the surgery. But, it is still a lot.
Joyful Grace wants her foster brother to be okay-- so he can continue sharing her home with her.
Rudy is his foster mom's shadow.
He's hoping she is making something good for dinner...he's licking his lips.
His appetite is good, and he is still very active-- not like the teen-ager we were told he was.
Joyful hopes he will be around a long time. Jeanne is beginning a fund-raiser to pay for Rudy's surgery. This sweet boy deserves a chance. If you want to help with his care, please make a donation by paypal or by sending a check to: PVPC P.O. Box 61005 Richmond, Va 23261 Thank you!
