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

April 1, 2014


Welcome to April everyone! Well, we are hoping we will get lots of April showers for the May flowers. Of course we prefer to schedule the rain a bit. You know, it will only rain from midnight to 5 in the morning and then be nice and sunny all day. We have put our order in and are sure it will be filled. Godiva assured us it would be!!

Tessa reporting in from my Forever Home. Can you believe it has been three years since I found my wonderful home? I could not be happier and hope all of you pupsters will find a home where you are all loved as much as I am. If not I know how much Auntie Jan and Unkie Bruce love every single one of you. If the right home is out here they will find it!!


April 3, 2014


We pupsters will tell you something. For the first time there are some pupsters that have been nearly successful in avoiding all of Mom's camera shoots. Kale and Spicey dodge, duck their heads and do everything in their power to avoid pictures. All of us cheer them on for we get a lot of satisfaction seeing Mom's camera shooting being foiled. Don't tell her we told you that though!


April 4, 2014


Hi all my pupster friends! Happy (fka Dempsey) here just relaxing and playing with my favorite bone. Boy, am I ever having fun in my new home. Shasta is having one heck of a time keeping up with me, but we sure enjoy racing around together. I have Mom and Dad wrapped right around my little paws already. Hey, how do you like my new haircut? I think I look pretty cool myself.


April 5, 2014


OK Mom, Pepper here has had enough. Chica and Samona think I am their personal blanket and if that isn't more than enough they both get up on my back and try to make a bed. Of course I will have to admit those scratches feel pretty darn good although it looks like I am having a bad hair day all the time! No complaints here though. Really, what other Pekey has their own personal back scratchers?


April 6, 2014


Well, it has been awhile since Petals here first arrived, but I am finally ready to start searching for my Forever Home. I have adjusted now to running and playing on three legs and can do the Pommy twirls with the best of them. I have almost nearly overcome my fear of humans and will tentatively approach those I do not know. Mom says I am the sweetest little Pommy she ever has been blessed to have in her life…blush. Wish me luck for my search for my special home!


April 7, 2014


There is a distinct possibility that Santo may be facing a huge time out. Mom was feeding us kids and was distracted by the door bell and left Liana's plate of food on the table. Wrong move on her part! Santo was up there in a flash although he knows better. Temptation got the best of him. Guess an extra plate of food, in his mind, is worth the time out.


April 8, 2014


Bonanza again! Wow, we are making out like bandits this month. Another box of goodies for all of us. Toys, coats and sweaters to name a few. We have so much fun whenever a package arrives for us. We help Mom open it and then she turns us loose to investigate. We pull out what we like as we sort through all of the goodies. Of course sometimes we get into a slight disagreement over who gets what, but Mom is always there reminding us about sharing.


April 9, 2014


Mom I really do try to share, but there are just certain toys that are mine…all mine! If anyone tries to take away my toy I am going to give them the what too! Now Devas here doesn't have a lot of sight left so you would think the other pupsters would consider my pupsterability and be kind and leave me alone. But oh no, they show no respect at all. So, I think that gives me the right to be shall we say "a bit grumpy"?


April 10, 2014


What do you mean I am pouting. What makes you say that? Priscilla here is just laying here minding my own business. OK, so I will have to admit that I really wanted to play with Sanyi and Liana and all they want to do is sleep. I tried nudging them a few times and all they do is grump at me! Sure does get a bit boring around here sometimes.


April 11, 2014


Let's see…what do we want to listen to today? Mom puts music on for us every day and lets us help pick out what we want to listen to. Now, you gotta know Mom is getting shall we say "up there" and loves the older groups and singers. We have no complaints though for we enjoy listening to her choices. A little Seger on some days, then we jump to a bit of music from the Pointer Sisters and then there is Delbert McClinton…great country rock. Of course there is the Tractors and we love listening to Celine and of course all of the volumes for the earlier years. When we really want to mellow out a bit Mahalia Jackson always does the trick. And then there is Liberace…Mom just goes nutso over his playing for she also plays the piano. So, back to picking out our music for the day!


April 12, 2014


Well, let's see, what shall we do today? Decisions, decisions, decisions. We could have a barking contest, but that always seems to get us in trouble. There is always attending a wrestling match, but none of the pupsters are prepared for a bout. Then we could flip the donut beds over, dig a hole in the mesh and pull out the stuffing knowing full well that there will be a big time out for that. Maybe we had best just relax and watch some animal programs on TV. Mom will see us being so good she might even pop some popcorn for us just like when you go to the movies.


April 13, 2014


Dad just doesn’t get it. If you leave the refrigerator door cracked just a bit for even a minute we have to investigate. Barone here checking everything out. Frankly it is a bit boring. Mom and Dad have all this green stuff in the fridge, grind it all up in this strange machine and then drink it…YUK! Anything that really looks good is out of my reach. You know, like sandwich meat, a little cheese, maybe even some salami. Guess I am going to have to get a stool to get up to the good stuff!


April 15, 2014


Whoa!! This wind needs to go away. We pupsters are nearly being blown away. Dottie and Rufus went out to check out the sun and a gust came up and nearly blew them away. We are OK with a soft breeze, but this is out of control. Well, as Mom and Dad say…you can expect anything in April, but the best thing is we know spring is finally here so we will just have to deal with these glitches in the weather.


April 17, 2014


Hey look everyone! Our playmate is back. Mr. Snapper is making his spring journey from the woods where he hibernates to the small pond on the other side of our property. Boy, he is bigger than ever! Sad part is he still hasn't taken a bath since we saw him last. He also needs a manicure..you should see the length of his nails. We told Mom we thought she should clip his nails, but she once again explained to us why he is called Mr. Snapper.


April 19, 2014


Well, today was a big day. Auntie Melanie and Unkie Keith arrived to pick up our sweet Kale and Spicey to join their family. All of us greeted them with tails wagging and slurpy kisses.



Then they met their sweet Kale and Spicey and held them for the first time.



After spending time with all of us Mom and Dad went out to their motor home to spend some time with all of the family. On their way home Kale and Spicey sent us a special picture of them with sissy..sure didn't take them long to get comfy!!


April 23, 2014


Hi Auntie Jan and Unkie Bruce,
Kiki and Yahtzee reporting in. We were out exploring the yard and thought we would check in. All is going great here and Mom keeps us busy. As you can see Yahtzee was too busy watching the birds to give you one of his great pupster smiles, but you know him! We miss all of you pupsters and send you lots of hugs and kisses.

Today was another very special day. Our beautiful Flutter headed home finally. Flutter was a breeder dog and came in from another rescue because she could not be touched and would bite out of fear. We began working with her slowly, patiently and gently. It was a year and a half before we felt she was ready to start searching for her Forever Home. Several applications arrived, but none that were right for her until this past month and we were thrilled for we had found the perfect home for our sweet Pommy. She greeted her new Mom with tail wagging.



When she arrived home she sent us this beautiful picture of her surveying her new surroundings. We are so proud of Flutter for her bravery and the trust she eventually placed in us. Enjoy your wonderful home baby!!.


April 25, 2014


Meet the proud parents of our sweet Lyssa. Today was Lyssa's special day and she has found a wonderful home. She is still a bit shy, but we have a feeling her Yorkie brother Maxx will bring her out of her shell in no time…she can be a little flirt you know. We certainly felt blessed to have Lyssa in our lives and enjoyed watching her overcome her shyness and fears. Now, don't be stealing any treats sweetie!


April 27, 2014


OK, Dainy now hold it right there! Cooper here needs to set you straight. You are the new kid on the block and you need to slow it down right now! First rule is you do not gather all of the toys in one place and proceed to tear them apart. Second rule you do not leap on one of us as we come in the doggy door. Third rule you go outside to do your potty duties. Fourth rule you do not steal anyone elses food. Fifth rule…geez, I am getting out of breath! Basically you need to behave!!!!


April 30, 2014


This month has been very busy for us…never a dull moment here you know. We thought spring was here, but Mother Nature sure had some surprises for us…straight winds that took shingles off our roof, cold nights and then some hail was even thrown in…gotta love Michigan! Anyway, that is what Mom and Dad say. We are looking forward to next month. We have already asked Dad to get the motor revved up on his boat and go out and catch us some yummy blue gill. See you soon!
