Pekingese Dogs and Puppies

The Pekingese Dog, one of the world’s most recognizable breeds of small dog, was once the sacred dog of China. The Pekingese Dog derives its name from the Tang Dynasty (619 – 907 AD) and their regal lineage is reflected in the Peke’s modern day character. For the Pekingese, exercise is a leisurely affair; short strolls will suffice.

Conversely, grooming the Pekingese Dog is anything but leisurely. Dedicated and regular attention is essential to avoid a knotted ball of fluff with a humorless constitution.

The Pekingese Dog is a breed for dog devotees. The grooming can be laborious, but the benefits can be great. The Peke’s occasional flirtations with humor and its attentiveness to his master can conquer the hearts of even the most reluctant groomer.

All About Labradoodle Dogs and Puppies

The Labradoodle, a crossbreed from a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle, is a handsome, playful dog. For the most part, he has inherited the best qualities from his poodle parent -low shedding and low dander, and from his Labrador parent – gentle temperament and trainability.

Since 1989 when this breed was first introduced, the Labradoodle is somewhat varied in appearance. The spectrum of colours ranges from nearly white to black with many winsome mixes in between. The coat’s texture ranges from a subtle wave to a curly cotton ball quality.

Perhaps the best known feature of the Labradoodle is its extraordinarily cute appearance and mild disposition. Frankly, they’re just the nicest dog one can image.
