SNUFFLE—BAD HAIR DAY

1 Share

Every Peke has bad hair days.  And Snuffle is no different. 
Snuffle usually looks beautiful but when the humidity is down or it’s windy, oh my!  Snuffle is a honorary PVPC Peke.  His mom and dad have adopted several from us.  Snuffle came from another group but we say he’s part of us. 
Her brother Schmoo says, “don’t worry about it.   It’s just hair!”  🤣

CHANGE A PETS LIFE DAY--CHANGE MAKERS

1 Comment

January 24 was "CHANGE A PET'S LIFE DAY."   So many of you HAVE changed a pet's life.   And I wanted to share some pictures that you posted.  
Lex and...
Dallas are still available for adoption.   Rescue has helped them so much-- but they want to be adopted as a pair, and we want that, too.    They are really sweet boys!!
Muffie came to us and what a difference rescue has made for her.  She had never been cared for-- so we began the process.  She had to have two mammary surgeries.   She had one dental, but has to go to a specialist for the rest of her dental.    Never having care had resulted in mouth infections that took a toll on her mouth.  Mouth infections can also cause heart issues.  
Francey now Sushi is about to be adopted.   She just has to finish her spay which is next week.  
Yogi was Sushi's owner's previous Peke-- also adopted from us.   He passed away after a stroke and now Sushi is mending his mom's heart.  
Sweet Tater has a second dental on the bottom of her mouth soon.  Then, she'll be ready for adoption in February.  She is so sweet!!
Simon and his sister...
Bella were adopted in 2017.   They were so sweet and their owner is just crazy about them!!   
Later, Winston and Gizmo joined the family.   Their mom (and her daughter) have adopted Pekes from us and are such great people!  
Lady and Louie -- both PVPC alumni.   Yes, a difference was made in their lives.   And their mom is my friend.   I have made such wonderful friends through rescue.  
You all know Tuk Tuk-- "THE TUK"-- he's joy wrapped up in a little body.
His brother Granger is a sweetheart, too.  Just not as exuberant!    It would be hard to be more exuberant than Tuk Tuk.
Harvard and his brother... 
Harvard...
And Jake were all PVPC alumni.   Their lives were changed-- and so were the lives of the people who adopted them.   💞
Lil Man is living in Richmond now.   Oh, he loves his daddy!
There are so many more whose lives have been changed.  And so many of you have been the change makers!    Thank you!

'he's joy wrapped up in a little body.' Charlie is officially the anti-Tuk Tuk.

ZOEY. —STATIC!

1 Share

Normally Zoey Pom Pom looks good.  But, the heaters are making her look very different. 
Her hair is usually smooth and neat.  
 Not yesterday.  Static was winning big time.   Poor Zoey.   At least, I didn’t shock her!  😂

BOGIE’S FAMILY — SEVEN ADOPTIONS

1 Comment

SEVEN RESCUES!! 

Bogie joined his family over a year ago.  I sure loved this boy but we can’t keep them all.    His family has adopted seven from us.  Wow! 
He joined Sugar.   She came into rescue in 2010.  She was with three others and was quickly adopted.   She is a spirited girl so she allows males in her home— but no other females.   Bossy! 
Peanut was in a shelter in 2015.   His skin was awful so no one would adopt him.   He came to rescue and was fostered by Bogie’s mom and dad.  He stayed. ❤️
Daniel came into rescue in 2021.   He was young but something was wrong.  Bogies family fostered him.  But, he began having severe seizures and there was nothing that could stop them.   His dad told him he was adopted before he let him go.    I knew this family but special but at that point, I knew just how special they were. 
You know Bogie came in with the Potomac Six.  He was adorable. He wanted to boss Paddington and Paddington wanted to boss Bogie.  Lol 
Sugar and Pete — Pete came into rescue in 2014 I think.   He was precious and loved “his kids.”  
Pete passed away in 2021.  He left having been loved deeply. 
Shark was rescued in 2009.   His was their best boy.  His name did not match his temperament—pure sweetness. 
Ralo joined the family of Sugar and Bogie before Christmas.   He is older and is cherished along with each Peke they have had.   Bogie is jealous but he will realize Ralo is no competition.  There is love for all.  
Have you adopted multiple Pekes from us?   Share them with me.

JOJO AND ANNABELLE

1 Comment

Jojo came into rescue in 2011.   
He was abandoned at a Sheetz store in NC.  We were asked to help.  He was a sweet boy. 
In 2012, Annabelle was a stray in Maryland.   She was little at 8-9 pounds. 
Little and mighty.  
She joined Jojo’s family and became the boss.   🤣
She took control, took over couches and ottomans.   What a pistol. 
Jojo got used to it-  more or less.   (His lost his right eye after he had been adopted.  It began having issues and it was removed to keep him comfortable.  There was no sight in it.)
They are both older now.   But they curl up on occasion even though another bed is near by.   I love updates!!   Hug each other for me.
