CHERRY AND SNOW

1 Share

Cherry lives in Washington— the state,  not DC close to Virginia. 
She is a beautiful little girl and a delight to her mom. 
She was inside all nice and warm….
And then she needed to go out.  WHAT?!
How fast can she go on a quick outside visit.   VERY FAST! 
She was not humored by the snow. 
Nope. Not a bit.  It’s time to be blown dry.  She wants some help!  🤣
I’m sure she ran to find her cozy bed as soon as she could!

BELLAMY HAS A BABY

1 Share

Bellamy came into rescue three years ago.  He was a young Peke of 1 1/2 years old.  His owner needed to rehome him.   We were glad to help.  Bellamy went through two adoptive homes before he found the perfect one.  He was a little ball of energy and needed the right place.  
Most of you remember my Starlight.  She loved her babies!  We had to get two bouncy seats or Starlight would climb in with the baby.
Starlight could be testy with adults, but children and babies were ADORED by her. 
We didn't know much about Bellamy when he came into rescue, but....
He seems to be following Starlight's example.   
His mom had a baby, and Bellamy is in love!!  (Don't worry, he's never left alone or unattended with the baby.)   
He has to be close to his new human brother.   
He has taken on being the watch dog for this perfect baby.
He wants to be close to make sure his baby is safe and doesn't need anything.
Yes, I think we have another Starlight here.  A dog who adores babies.
It's such a precious thing to see.  🍼💓

TRUFFLES AND LILY

1 Share
Chien Chien was adopted from us many years ago.  She lived a long and wonderful life with his mom.  
After Chien Chien passed away, there was a huge hole in her mom's heart-- was it big enough for two?  
Truffles, 9,  and Lily, 5, were mom/daughter and very bonded.   
Elizabeth let them visit to see if she could handle two dogs since she had always had just one.
After two days, there was love all around.  
Both of these sweet dogs came from someone who needed to find them a home.  
The girls had been well cared for, and were happy.
Chien Chien had died in January, and their mom loved her so much-- and these two needed a new place with love-- a perfect match.  
I'm not sure which one is Truffles or which one is Lily-- but oh, they are both adorable.
 And they are home with a Peke lover.  So much love fills their life.  💜💗

TUK TUK AND GRANGER

1 Share

Tuk Tuk is still a puppy-- and he is still full of himself.  
I remember when he came into rescue. 
And he was so tiny-- but still mighty.
Granger and Tuk Tuk became great friends. 
He helps his mom when she is grading papers.
When he was neutered, it did slow him down a bit-- the e-collar really got in his way, but he graduated to the neck tube that Jane sent him.  :-)
Granger is trying to teach Tuk Tuk how to use things properly-- this is what not to do.  LOL
After lots of play, Tuk Tuk slows down occasionally.
But, then he's back to play. 
Tuk Tuk has come so far from the tiny puppy we took into rescue.  
And since my daughter adopted him, he's still part of the family-- a VERY...BUSY.. part of the family.  😍

SWEET BRIDGET

1 Share

Bridget came into rescue almost 4 1/2 years ago.   She was 14 years old. 
Rita helped spring her from the shelter. Bridget was so happy. 
She was adopted by Elaine and is now 18 years old!  
She loves her new home and her mom. She has everything she needs. 
She has soft comfy beds.  Why don’t Pekes get all the way in them? 😄
Are you hiding?  
Bridget is older, but she still has a sense of style.  She is such a cherished girl. 💖

FAREWELL WILLY

1 Comment

Willy came to rescue from a shelter near Richmond, VA   
He couldn't see well because of glaucoma, and had to have that eye removed.  He was also very nutritionally deficient. Sherry had to syringe feed him to get food into him.  
He was dressed up for Halloween-- and he loved attention.  
He began to do better and he began to eat on his own.  A shopping trip was in order.  
He relaxed and knew he was safe and loved.
He was so loved that Sherry adopted him.  He was home!
Willy was just smiling.  
He foster mom wrote this early in his care, " I've fostered sweet dogs over the years but Willy is THE sweetest dog ever. We set up a large bed in the corner of the living room which has become his place. He wallows around on the pillows and burrows under the blankets and will sleep for hours. I am so grateful to be fostering him and watching him evolve as he becomes more comfortable and secure here. We love him!!"
Willy had two years with Sherry and her niece, Jennifer.  Two years of love and happiness and total care.
He couldn't see, but he knew how to get around.  
He began to decline, he was getting older.  
He slept more, but he knew he was still loved immensely.
Sometimes, we have them a shorter time when we get them as older dogs.  But, the time is so precious.  Sherry adores the seniors and wants to give them the best years she can.  Willy had that.  💓  Run free now, Willy.
