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.

HEART DOGS-- LAFITE AND BOGIE
I received several emails about heart dogs. I think we've all had them. Bogie and Lafite, above, as puppies, were Chris' heart dogs. Bogie, "Bobo," was named after Humphrey Bogart, one of Chris' favorite actors. Bogie was a cover hog, a prankster and he loved to run and hide and chew things. (Sounds like a Peke to me!)
Chris said they went to get one Peke and Lafite put his paw on her leg as if to say, "take me, too." They did.
Bogie and Lafite were litter mates and so sweet. Bogie died suddenly during a dental. This is very rare, but it can happen. Lafite was lost without his best friend.
Lafite and his mom and dad came to my house and met Lacy, who joined their family.
Later, Mr. Winks joined their group.
Lacy settled right into her new home.
Chris said that Bogie and Lafite were the dogs of her heart-- Lafite, in one of my favorite pictures ever, was watching them out the window at Christmas one year. He was a beautiful boy. They both shared a piece of Chris' heart. They were the first Pekes she ever had and so special. Even though they are gone, they will always be in her heart.
