Ah, the Pekingese - a boon to lazy people everywhere. Why sweep, when you have a dog that doubles as a mop?

Pontious Pilates: Hurray. More grist for the puppy mills.

/Don't breed or buy while homeless pets die.

What is needed is a National Mutt Championship. Dogs will be judged on things of greater merit like the ability to take a punch.

This is a real dog in its natural habitat...the bleachers at a San Francisco Giants game.

This is mine in what he wishes was his natural habitat:

Why anyone would get a purebred dog unless they need them for the express purpose of what they were bred for (like a hunting dog) is beyond me.

I understand the tribble had to overrcome much resistance from the Klingon judges. They just don't get along.

There is at least one record of an ancient Chinese court emissary training these dogs (actually, a miniaturized version of the same breed) to bite and hang on to the first thing their face came into contact with after he flung them out of his sleeves. He apparently felt he needed a form of self-defense to get around the prohibition of weapons of any sort within the palace -- same reason the folding fan became a weapon in some veins of martial arts.

Pekes are among the oldest breeds and were prized by Chinese royalty. They are surprisingly healthy. That said, they are also one of the ugliest breeds I've ever seen. The ex had one. Nothing like having dog snot snorted in your face while you nap on the couch.

I heard that the Shih Tzu had the same history and were a crossbred between Pekingese with the Lhasa Apso.

But after reading up, Chinese would have little doggy storage pockets in their sleeves with Pekes in them, while walking slowly and wearing funny hats.
/That had to be a sight..

cookiefleck: Bking1168: It is one of the oldest breeds, but congrats on your woeful ignorance

that doesn't mean my Rottie wouldnt want that little pathetic yappy fur ball for a snack. Booo AKC.... pick a real dog

Also FTFA, Ben Walker of the Associated Press, do you know how I know you're gay??

I love big dogs, Rotties, German Shepards, St. bernards, all of them. Just because it's small and yappy doesn't make it any less of a "real dog".

I hate pekingeses at dog shows. They always look like something I would attach to the end of a long stick and mop my kitchen floor.

I guess they couldn't find an actual dog.

Why Westminster aggrandizes these type of animals I don't know, health problems out the ying-yang. It's not a healthy breed.

recognize well bred dogs, not farcical approximations of them.
