Sam and I started our peke affair innocently enough. An abandoned puppy found him on a wooded trail where it had either been lost or abandoned. He became our beloved Chia and we doted on him. As he became older, we decided he needed a companion and we got in touch with a very nice lady named Louise Harden who visited us and processed our application. She introduced us to Makoti (AKA Bebe) and we loved her at first sight. Chia crossed the rainbow bridge after a few years and we decided to bring a companion for Makoti into our home. Dawson Dog joined us from PVPC and he and Makoti were a couple of holy terrors. We had some success with fostering, but as we found when we fostered Taylor, we had a tendency to fall in love, so he joined our pack. In 1997 the club did a mass rescue and we found ourselves in possession of a terrified little foster peke who had barely survived giving birth to 2 pups at the home of Louise Harden. As scared as she was, she attached herself to Sam, and I knew she would be staying with us. Our pekes have been our children and have kept us grounded through many years. Sam and I divorced, but we continued to share custody of our four legged kids, and we found that given the motivation, many bad feelings could be healed. We lost our beloved Shadow the morning of the Peke picnic. I wanted to share our pictures of the wonderful life these little spirits have given us.
