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.

JOJO AND ANNABELLE
Annabelle came into a shelter as a stray in 2012. She was a tiny 8 pounder whose owner never claimed her.
Jojo was found outside a convenience store in a crate in 2011. After he had been there for hours, they figured the owner wasn't inside, he wasn't there at all. Both of these dogs were brought into our rescue and they were both adopted to the same wonderful home.
Annabelle and her tiny self is the boss there. She definitely has an opinion and wants it heard. But, when there is a thunderstorm, she knows it is coming. Some dogs can sense a storm coming before we ever hear it. I know my Piper will start trying to get close to me and get into my lap, putting his head under my arm.
Both Annabelle and Jojo get anxious and their dad uses something recommended by their vet to help them stay calmer as the storm comes. I've also used Thundershirts and white noise to block the sound.
Jojo alerts his dad to coming storms. Some dogs pace, or hide, or come to you for comfort. They can try to find a safe place. How does your dog react to storms? Can Dogs Hear Thunder Miles Away? - Wag!
