OCTOBER MEETING

1 Share
 We had our Pekingese Club (PVPC) October meeting yesterday.  Nala went and sat on my lap.   What do you do when you are just a passenger going to Richmond?  You try to see if you can get Nala's hair to stand up all over.  She is so tolerant!!
 And this is what we saw at one point.  Why?  Because there was a car sitting beside the road--- nothing wrong.  But, everyone had to look.   Oh, No.
 We weren't that far--- so let's get going.
I'll share lots of pictures tomorrow-- Nala was there, so if you came, you were able to meet her in person.   She loved all the attention!   Scout was there, too-- showing us how much she loves bananas.  This was a new one for me! LOL   They all say HAPPY SUNDAY!  πŸ’œπŸ’›

CHUMLEY AND HIS TOY

1 Share
Chumley came to me four years ago as a foster dog.  He was in a shelter near me and was in pretty rough shape from allergies and lack of care.   Click here: Must Love Pekes: AUTUMN PEKE--
 He came here-- we didn't know how old he was, but as time went on, we though he was 9-10 years old.   So he's 13-14 now-- fits right in with my old crowd.
 He loves the Bits.  And Bitty Bit the Viking loves him the most.  (He's with Beach Bit here.)
 Chumley discovered his dumb bell toy shortly after he came.
 He occasionally rests-- more now than he used to... Seniors like to do that.
 His toy is never far away.
 Nala discovered his toy, too.  Oh, drama!
 She usually loves her purse the best-- yes, that IS her favorite.
 Thank goodness, we have more than one of these. 
 So now, Nala can have one, too, if she wants one.
 Sugar Bit can hide toys-- yes she can.
Help the boy!!   And I did. πŸ’™

TUCKER-- ADORABLE!

1 Share
 In July of 2014, we were asked to help a dog in a shelter.  I could tell he was a mix, but something about his eyes drew me in. 
 We took him into rescue, and he was just a sweetheart. 
 I did a home check in my area with a couple and they were perfect for him.
 He has an incredible home.
 He goes a lot of places with them!   And he's always smiling.  (Okay, maybe not in this picture LOL.)
Tucker-- what a happy boy!!

RICKY ADOPTED

1 Share
 Ricky came into rescue in April this year.   He was in a shelter and since he had one eye that didn't work well, and had limited hearing, his chances of adoption were slim.
 But, we saw the beauty there.
 He loved his ride to freedom.
 I love this portrait of his personality.
 He was with Lisa, who loved him-- but as fosters, we know we are there for a season and hope they find a wonderful forever home.
 And Ricky did!
 Jannie adopted him and he now lives with Pickle and Bella and Simon.
 Bella would like to still be the boss and she lets him know.   LOL  But, Ricky doesn't care.  He's very laid back.
 He loves his rug by the door and it's his mission to trip any burglar who tries to get in.  It's his new job and he takes it seriously.
I love ADOPTED!!   Ricky will be loved and cared for the rest of his life.  And that makes us SO HAPPY!!

NALA UPDATE

1 Share
 Nala and her sister, BeeBee came into rescue in January after their owner turned them into a shelter.
 They were the sweetest, most playful pair I've ever seen.  They both had severe seizures and they both had IMHA.    BeeBee lost the battle with IMHA on August 10.   
Sometimes, Nala will lay next to Kai Kai.  Last night, I woke up with them both beside me, and they were side by side.  Nala likes the comfort of being with another dog.   (But, she loves me and I'm her person.)
Her battle with IMHA has continued and it's been rough. 
She curls up with Kai Kai on the couch to rest.   She doesn't have the energy to play as much. 
We went to the vet yesterday. 
Minnie went, too.  She likes to be with people, so I let her come along.
So did Kai Kai.  (He's 13 and I wanted to see how his heart was-- and it's GREAT!  Maybe a little slow, but nothing wrong with it.πŸ’™) 
We went into the room-- Kai Kai and Minnie sat in the stroller while Dr. Meador checked out Nala.
She wanted me to sit on the floor with her, so of course, I did.   She was checked out and her skin and foot checked.  Those were a concern, especially after her sister, BeeBee had the serious foot issue.   Nala has also been losing a lot of her hair due to Cushing's Syndrome which is a result of the meds she has been on for the IMHA.   She has gained weight and has "pred belly."  She has lost muscle mass.   Her skin is sloughing off.  Her skin is "thin."  These are all side effects of the meds and IMHA.   So many dogs do not beat this disease, but we are still fighting.   Her red blood count has gone up and down, up and down.  A month ago it was 42.  Then it dropped to 35.  Last week it was 26, yesterday it was 29.   We have been weaning her off the meds because, even though they saved her life, they are now detrimental to her health.   There is another med she can go on if she can't be without the prednisone, but for now, it's hurting her.   This little girl is a fighter and I love her.   She is a little warrior.   So, we will keep up the fight!
I told her I was writing a story about her-- so she looked over the top of the computer to give me ideas. 
She and Kai Kai decided to take a nap while I was writing, but she still had her pink purse in her mouth.   Keep praying for this precious girl that I've had the blessing to have in my life. πŸ’— I love her.
