Arrival Story:
I was rescued from a New York City animal shelter in May 1996. The people who left me there didn't even tell anyone my name or age. Maybe they didn't want me because I have epilepsy. I also hadn't been walked in so long that my nails had grown in a circle and were pressing into my pads. I've had tender feet ever since. I thought my mom would be more likely to take me home if she thought I was a lap dog so I sat in her lap at the shelter. But I hate sitting in laps so that's the last time I did that. Fooled you! Ha ha.

Bio:
When mom and dad got married, I walked down the aisle on a purple satin leash, accompanied by my aunt Molly (another rescue Peke) and my human brother and sister. I am a very mellow guy, but Molly can be a little snippy and I guess the stress got to us because we had a fight shortly before our big moment. Molly gave me a nip! Mom wasn't around and no one told her because she would have been upset. I limped for a while to get some attention. We were good dogs walking down the aisle and we lay down nicely during the ceremony, but when they put the glass on the ground for dad to stomp on, Molly got up to sniff it. More recently, my sister Gigi and I had our pictures taken by the famous photographer William Wegman, and the pictures look great even though Gigi is in them. I'm still not sure about having a sister. When she's mean to me, I look at mom and bark for help.

This is Gigi, Chubbs' adopted sister again. My Mom asked me to tell you that Chubbs peacefully went to his "eternal nap in the heavenly dog bed" today. He was very old and had many health problems. Walking was very difficult and even when he could walk, he often bumped into things. His vision was actually okay but he was very confused mentally. Mom brought me to the vet to say goodbye. I sniffed him when I got there but mostly I was busy pooping and being nervous. I couldn't help myself! Mom held me up to him later to sniff him again after he had the injection, but I wouldn't do it. I knew he was no longer there so there was no reason. I'm going to lie in his old bed and think about him now.

This is Gigi, his adopted sister. Mr. Chubbs had successful eye surgery last week and was recovering nicely though he had to wear a lampshade on his head and I made fun of him. Tonight, however, Mom got worried because he was panting very violently. She rushed him to the Animal Medical Center and he is in the ICU getting oxygen. The vet said it could be a blood clot in his lung, which could clear up by itself, or it could be a brain tumor which the vets have suspected that he may have. Mom is crying because he looked very sick in the ICU and unless there is a miraculous improvement, he may not come home again. I know that I have often barked that I would rather be an only dog but now I am sad too. It seems very empty in the house without him. I am very worried and I furrow my brow whenever Mom looks at me so that she knows that I care after all.

 

My life is full of drama!

Today Mom thought I was winking at her, but when she looked closely, she discovered I was squinting out of one eye. She washed the eye off which I didn't like one bit and ran to the vet. It's the eye where I kept getting a sty. Now I have an ulcerated cornea! I don't like the sound of that. We have to go to the big animal hospital tomorrow morning to see the opthamologist. Can't an old guy ever catch a break? Sheesh. At least I got to cuddle up to Dr. Jennifer today.
