Peke A Tzu Rescue
Foster Journal

We thought all of you out there would like to see what happens here in our home so we decided we would pop in on occasion and let you know what we are doing. Some days it is just the same old routine, but other times we have a lot of excitement.
Each night as we settle down and climb into bed we gather close and say a prayer for all of the pupsters that are in need.

We hope you enjoy hearing about our activities and seeing a few pictures. The majority of the time you will see us happy, healthy and well groomed, but there is a significant cost involved to get each of us to this point which can be viewed at Foster Vetting Costs..
If you would like to help with our vetting costs please let all know about our Magazine Fundraiser

Well, we certainly had a great start to the New Year. Auntie Jamie and Unkie Jeff bought Dad this really nifty turkey air cooker. No oil so it is much healthier for all of us. He marinated the turkey overnight. We of course had to give our OK before the cooking began. Then he patted on his favorite seasoning and into the cooker it went…yum, yum! If you didn't notice Mom wasn't mentioned in the cooking process…she is still allergic to the kitchen. We wish everyone the best year ever!!

Wow, would you look at this? Aren't these flowers boootiful? Even though its snowy and cold outside we are keeping spring alive in the house. We make sure the flower is watered and we check it out every single day. We all take turns babysitting our flower. Now this is a chore we do not object to!

Neither sleet, nor rain, nor snow will discourage we pupsters from holding our wrestling matches you know. Barone and Rolo are in the ring today. Barry is on the lookout for Mom. We think this will probably be a pretty short match for it is cold enough to freeze our butts off out here! Barone is the long shot today, but you never know how these matches will turn out. All bets are in and we are ready to start the match!

Well, this is a bummer! There is absolutely nothing in this container. Now you would think there would be a little crumb of something in here. Paper, a toy anything would do. All this work for nothing. It took us forever to get the top off only to be disappointed. Ten to one Mom did this on purpose. She knew if we were left unattended we wouldn't be able to resist. She is always pulling pranks on us!

Hi Everyone,
My name is Sprite. I was found on the side of a busy city road and this wonderful lady picked me up and immediately took me to emergency care. I was then transferred to PATR for care. I am approximately 10 years old. I weigh 5 1/2 pounds and a healthy weight for me should be about 10 pounds. I have a large growth in my left ear which is infected.


I have visited our veterinarian and am on antibiotics for the ear infection. Surgery in the future will be necessary once the ear infection is under control and I have gained some weight. I also suffer from dry eye and am sight impaired. I will be on eye medication for the remainder of my life.
I am hoping that you can help out with my vetting costs which will be in excess of $700.
I have been gently bathed and my rescue angel is working on grooming bit by bit so that I am not stressed. So many mats! Pictures will be posted once I am fully groomed.

Here I am and I feel so much better!! I am getting all kinds of treats and goodies. My ear feels a bit better, but I have a ways to go before I am healthy.

Well, we are in now!! Auntie Eileen made us Michigan pillow covers. Now we know a lot of you out there favor the "other" team, but we are dyed in the wool Michigan fans here. Yeh, we know football season is over, but we are getting all revved up for the arrival of the new coach at Michigan. We just know Michigan can be Number One once again!!

Snow, snow and more snow. It is so cold we just run out, do our duty and right back in. Sure does get boring around here in the winter. Mom said she was going to make popcorn for all of us and will find something really fun on TV. Then we are going to play some games to help keep our minds busy. Geez, she is already counting down the days until spring. Always the optimist you know!

Now, darn it I know it is in here somewhere. Pepper here gets so disgusted with some of the pupsters. They can never put the toys back in the toy box without making a mess. And then I think they bury my favorite toy deliberately. In fact there have been times when I have found it hidden outside. One of these days……!

Today our sweet Santo met his Mom and Dad. We pupsters are sure going to miss him. He has been a true friend, a confidante and the best playmate we could have ever asked for. We know Mommy Jan is really going to miss his sweet kisses. He is Sydney's Grandson and as most of you know Sydney holds a very special place in Mom's heart. Santo was also born on Mommy Jan's birthday. We know he is going to such a good home and will help heal his new sisters heart for she has been grieving since losing her brother. We love you Santo!!

Well, yesterday we sent our Santo to his wonderful home and today Samona is leaving. She played the shy role when her Mom first arrived, but it didn't take her long to realize that this was a very special moment for her. After being held for nearly an hour she was in her glory. So off she went tucked into her own little bag.

We have a feeling she is going to be very, very spoiled! She promised to send lots of pictures and emails and will be visiting us for her home is close by.

Everybody keeps accusing Buffy here of being stuck up. Now, that is not the case. Actually there are times where I have something in my mouth which is totally off limits and I know if I get caught I am going to be in big, big trouble. So when Mom walks by I just look sooooo innocent she doesn't even know. Boy, hope she is not reading the Foster Journal today because if she is my secret will be exposed and I will be in for a BIG timeout!

Mom, Pretzel here would like to file a complaint. Every time I start to discuss my problems with the pupsters they turn their back. Now, I will admit I may be a bit of a pupsterchondriac, but you would think they could have a little empathy for me. None of us are perfect you know!
