Hollie says “hello”

We’ve done it… our own royal “baby” has appeared.

After much searching and angst Hollie has joined our family – and I’m afraid it’s another Peke. We have officially become “Peke people”.

We went to the usual rescue centres and contacted a few online rescues too. There were some lovely dogs there but, as time went on, it became clear that only a Peke would do.

I did think the whole hunt would be easier than it was. We wanted a small, older dog, and could cope with health problems. But, surprisingly, there are mainly young healthy dogs in rescue!

However we now have Hollie. She’s 6 years old and a beautiful black Peke. She’s had a little hair cut for summer and is enjoying life!
