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.

CHUMLEY-- MR. HAPPY
Chumley is another "before and after" story. Chumley was in a shleter in September 2014. He was older, but happy, even in the shelter.
He was in rough shape, with missing hair and raw skin.
He was matted and had skin infections. I don't know how he ended up in the shelter, but it was a lucky day for us and for him.
We shaved him down, so his skin could be clean and "airy" and he began to heal.
He came to our house for fostering and my granddaughter met him and cried at the thought that he would be adopted-- so we adopted him. The things we do for our grandkids! haha He loves everyone and all the kids. And of course, he LOVES his dumbell.
We nick named him Mr. Happy.
He is about 13-14 now, and he sleeps a lot.
He will disappear in the evening, and I'll find that he has gone upstairs and put himself to bed-- either on our bed or one of the doggy beds.
He is great with all the dogs, loves all the kids, guards the street against renegade children or birds or neighbors who are in their yard. He is a great boy.
His tail wags and his skin is great (with allergy food and cytopoint shots). He is a happy boy!
