Mugsie the Pekinese, the Dog of the Day
Name: Mugsie
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male Breed: Pekinese
Home: Georgetown, Texas, USA
   I'd like to introduce my little Peke, Mugsie Boges. Mugsie turned seven years old this fall. Six years ago on Thanksgiving weekend something told me to go our town animal shelter. I wasn't looking for a dog, but I had this nagging feeling and while I didn't know why, I just knew I had to go to the shelter. Even though the shelter was closed, I went. As l circled around the fenced perimeter, there on the very last indoor/outside run was a little ball of tan fluff with a pushed in face. I caught my breath. Surely it wasn't a Peke? I had been raised with Pke's as a child in New York, but this was Texas cattle and horse country. What was a little Peke doing out here? Did they even know what a Peke was around here?!

     By Sunday night I couldn't stand it anymore and called the animal shelter to leave a message. Monday morning the call came, and no,  he was no one's pet,  in act not one person has asked after him. I told them I would be right there. I was at work at the time and ran into my manager's office to tell her I had a small emergency (?!) and would be gone a little while. Once at the animal shelter, gate opened, a little ball of fluff flew into my arms, clammered up my neck and buried my face in kisses. "I'll take him!", was all I could get out. And that's how Mugsie Boges came to live with us. Mugsie enjoys sleeping, playing with his toys, pupperoni's, kissing his best friend Chloe - our chow/golden and doing the back stroke on dry land when we say Mugsie, SWIM SWIM!!, and driving cross country with us to see his Grandparents and their English Bull Dog Sarge.
