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.

I needed to do catch up on my dogs today. The past few weeks have been busy, and I had today where I could just have some "home" time. Chumley had a "pass" because he is still on "sick time" with his back. I'm sure he wanted to laugh at everyone else as they got put in the sink.
Minnie is trying to be invisible-- I see you. (Later, she hid under the Grand Piano, haha.)
Max really needed a haircut, so I did some. I'm terrible at it, but we'll fix him later with a professional cut. I trimmed off a lot of hair-- he is so "Mr. Grumpy" about the whole thing.
Minnie was still trying to hide-- she kind of blends in, but not really.
I caught you! Minnie still has PTSD-- she's doing better, but she still stresses so much. The bath wasn't bad, but the blow dry was like wrangling an orangutan! Holy cow!
Kai Kai is trying to sleep-- but he got a bath, too. He is so good about it and I put him in a laundry basket on the grooming table to dry him--so he won't fall off. Talk about hair all over the place.
I messaged Kay, Claretta and Barbara about what I LOOKED LIKE after a bath. Some of their dogs are being bathed tomorrow-- their turn! I told them I was refraining from a selfie.
Beau (above) and Pop here are probably better than Minnie.
Tina is just a good girl-- yes, I'm responsible for getting this non-Peke out of the shelter. She was a bare mess, no hair and skin horrible. She was so needy-- she really did look like she could be a Peke-- really she did. I keep telling myself that. She is such a sweet dog and has brought so much joy to her home.
Barbara is having the groomer come to do her dogs.
She's missing out on what Kay and Claretta and I get to experience.
You know, wet dogs, wet towels, wet self. Hair flying all over the place, trying to control the dog on the grooming table. Trying to blow them dry in a laundry basket. Such fun!!
Kacey may plead for a pass-- but I doubt he'll get one.
Melrose may try, too. Once they're all done, we can see what they look like. I'm sure they will look better than Max does. LOL But, they'll all be clean-- and then WE can get clean!
