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.

WITH LOVE FOR DAVID
My sweet friend, Tara, lost her best friend, her partner, and her love last week.
She and David had known each other for a long time and they were bonded in so many ways.
They both adored their dogs.
Crosby was the most recent one they adopted from us.
They also adopted Triple-- who was one of our very special ones. Triple had cancer and lost one of his legs while he was in rescue. They got Triple a wheelchair and they posted a video of him on his first venture-- it was wonderful to see Triple moving fast and to hear David and Tara laughing.
David was often on the floor with them.
They enjoyed singing along with him.
Or just laying there getting tummy rubs.
Or maybe just vegging on the couch together.
David was a true dog person.
The dogs even allowed him a small part of the bed. Funny how they can just take it over.
The three dogs-- Maggie, Triple and Crosby were all loved and cared for.
They had everything they needed.
Tara's David became very sick last month. He went through many surgeries and fought hard, but he could not overcome all the issues. He passed away on May 14, 2019. (He was born January 4, 1971.) Tara said the last smile he gave was when he saw Triple-- he loved him so much.
Tara told me so much about him and I wanted to honor him for her. She posted, "It was one of those love stories that people will talk about for years to come." Their was a love story.
We are with you, Tara, as you walk this new journey. You and Maggie, and Triple and Crosby are in our hearts.
