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 17 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.
Charlie and JJ came into rescue three years ago. They were turned into a shelter when their owners were moving. They said the landlord would not let them bring them to the new home.
JJ had some leg issues, but seemed to get around fine.
He was 12 years old when he came into rescue, which would make him over 15 now.
He was a little timid of strangers but settled into his foster home.
Charlie was a big fluffy boy.
Look at his smile!
I don't know why he and his brother were not adopted. Charlie was ten when we got him, so he was a senior-- but they had years left to live.
JJ and Charlie are forever fosters. They are now 13 and 15, and doing well. They are just older-- they don't see and hear well, but they enjoy their life.
They are both so cute-- and they are safe and loved in their foster home. I can never figure out why some are adopted and some are not. But, whether they are adopted or not, we commit to them for the time they are with us. Thanks to Martha for giving them a home to live out their lives.
Lola came to our rescue in March 2010 with a group from Arkansas-- a puppy mill bust. We gave them names to give them a positive outlook-- like Hope and Joy and Noble. Hope became Lola and was cherished in her home with Jeff. I think this was when I met Jeff (via emails and on line) and saw what an incredible owner he was.
He has adopted quite a few. Ginger was one of them-- she died last year.
Scarlett was another one of his beloved girls. She was Jeff's first rescue girl and she passed away in 2013.
When Jeff adopted Lola, he said he didn't know who rescued who-- Lola has so much hope for the future in her eyes when she met Jeff. And what a future she had in store for her.
Lola was best friends with Mimi,
Lola passed away this morning in her daddy's arms. She had a lot of heart issues and it just became too much for her. She had a life of being loved and cherished for over six years. Now, she can run free with Ginger and Scarlett and the others who have gone before her. My deepest sympathy to Jeff and Jimmy on the loss of your girl. She was so loved!
I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since Madeline Grace came into rescue!
She became the sister of Mickey, who was also adopted from us.
They are best buddies and are so cherished by their mom and dad!
Madeline does not like having her eye drops-- it's a "two man" job haha. If Madeline hears the words "eye drops," she takes off and hides under the bed. If she only realized it would be so fast and over with!
Mickey is still timid, but not in the family-- just with strangers. He is such a beauty!
He is ready for treats and a meal-- but Madeline insists on being hand fed. What a little princess haha.
They have a cat sibling, too. Keekers is just fine with them unless Madeline gets too playful. She is still an active, loving and adorable girl!! What a great family this is. :-)
Shelby has a history with us. We got her years ago when someone found her. Then, we found her owner and returned her. Unfortunately, her owner did not take care of her, and several years later, asked us to take her back.
She was in worse shape than before, but look at her now.
She was with Jeanne, but has been living with her vet and friend, Rich and Charee. She has buddies now who are not Pekes. :-)
Shelby loves to watch football and cheer on her team.
Sometimes, she just rolls over for a nap.
Naps are fun!!
Nicky will snuggle up with her.
And Daddy tummy rubs are wonderful!
Tinsley is a beauty, too! She is a King Charles Cavalier.
Shelby learned to climb steps-- wow, that chair looks big! Or is she just really tiny?
Peek-a-boo! I see you, Shelby. Her Mom calls her Sparky-- lol.
She has a wonderful life, and loves sharing popcorn with his siblings. I think you have found a great place to be!
