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.

INTROVERT OR EXTROVERT
With this social isolation going on, some of you are okay with not going out. Some are going crazy! Are you an introvert--like me-- or an extrovert, like Paddington. He wants to meet and greet!
Kai Kai-- well, he is an introvert. He likes to hide out.
Patch is Abner's brother. He wants OUT! Where are the other dogs, the other people. He wants to meet them all.
Granger is not one to be confined. Nope. In his last house, he ate part of the bathroom door to get out. Yes he did. Bad Granger!
Some have said, "Pretend it's Christmas!" Okay. It was 88 degrees yesterday. It's 64 today, so that's better. But, Christmas is hard to imagine when it's too hot. And some of you still like to be inside, on your own, or have limited interaction with others.
There are a lot of things you can do when you have to stay home. Bake a pie. I made a peach pie and have been nibbling on it for two days. MMMMM.
Mitsy is a bit of an introvert. She isn't comfortable with you until she gets to know you a little. It doesn't take long, but she wants to know you on her terms, in her time. Then, she comes for nuzzles, wags her tail and follows you around.
You can also watch funny videos on line, or share pictures-- this one was funny.
You can hang upside down if you want to. If you do this, send me a picture, because I doubt that ANY of you can do it. I can't. This is one of my grandkids-- she is made of rubber and muscle!
Clara is fine without a crowd. She just wants her person--ME-- and she is a happy camper. (And yep, Clara has no tail.)
What else can you do while you are confined. I sat (as I was teaching Beach Bit, home schooling) and pulled out all the assorted pens and pencils in my desk and on the counter (how can they be in so many places!). This is a bit much. So, in boredom, I checked out each one and threw out a lot. Now I have order in my pencils and pens-- quite an achievement LOL. I might clean my closet next. Or not. I might just sit (fat chance of that happening).
Minnie is my introvert for sure. She trusts no one but me. I know she doesn't want anyone to touch her head, but you can pet her back, for a few seconds. She is definitely a loner, but she does seek me out. Maybe today, I'll sit on the porch for a few minutes-- and just do nothing. I'm an introvert, so that would be fine. Most of my dogs are introverts. Piper and Paddington-- nope. They want to know everyone. What are you-- introvert or extrovert? How are you handling this social distancing? Thank goodness, we have ways to still stay in touch!! Be Safe everyone!
