Legends of the Pekingese

The Common Legend:

A lion and a marmoset fell in love. But the lion was too large. The lion went to the Buddha and told him of his woes. The Buddha allowed the lion to shrink down to the size of the marmoset. The Pekingese is the result.

A lesser know Legend:
A lion fell in love with a butterfly. But the butterfly and lion knew the difference in size was too much to overcome. Together they went to see the Buddha, who allowed their size to meet in the middle. From this, the Pekingese was created.

We met Milo last month when animal control had to take all of the animals from a hoarder.  Hoarders often believe that they can save every animal and feel a need to collect them.  Most often they realize they are in over their heads but their heart is so big that they can't stop trying.  I appreciate the intent of hoarders but in the end, their need ends up hurting the animals.  They cannot afford the care necessary and the animals will suffer. 

Milo definately came from a home of love.  He isn't shy, loves to be near us and while he doesn't snuggle or kiss he very much wants to be touched and near.  suffers from dry eye.  He is skinny but given his appetite we'll get past that quickly.  

Milo is blind.  His hearing is very strong and he  has a talent for knowing where everyone is. 

Milo is HW- and healthy.  He's about 8-10 years of age and has only barked a few times.  He is good with the other dogs but doesn't spend much time with them though he will play for a few minutes here and there with them. 

If you are interested in fostering or adoption, please contact me at pekesandyoutx@gmail.com.  Please visit our website if you would like to donate to his care.  While he is healthy his initial vetting expenses were higher than usual because we had to treat an ear and eye infection.  Visit our website at http://www.pekesandyou.com/ to make a donation.

Thanks everyone!!
