& Babies - 2 week old
We registered our own
Affix with the KC 'VARPEK'; (VAR = first 3 letters of our surname &
PEK = first 3 letters of the breed!)
we lost the puppy
bitch ‘Poppy’ at 4 months old - we were heart broken. Up to been 3 months old
she was healthy & was looking very promising
started stumbling & having mini black-outs, only for a split second & then
would get up & run round again. We
did everything we could for her, took her to numerous vets for different
opinions & ended up at Liverpool University Hospital for small sick
animals. They had to perform an operation, which she pulled
through. On the morning we were to pick her up, they found her dead in her cage.
didn't think we would be able to carry on exhibiting/breeding, but with so
much encouragement from new ‘peke’ friends we couldn’t give up.
