Hey, is this on? Do you remember us?
Yeah, it's been a while hasn't it. Things have gotten exciting on the Pei front though, so maybe it's time to get back blogging. We'll see how long it lasts.
First off, everyone has gotten older. Puppy has turned 8 years old. Chingmy is 5 years old.
And then, what sort of, kind of prompted us to come back:
Meet Wedgie. She is a 6 year old Blue Shar Pei, who has been championed and has had 1 litter. I don't know anything about her puppies, sorry. She had been living quite comfortabley at Chingmy's breeders place. We have somewhat regular contact with the breeder because Chingmy has been boarded there before. Anyway, Lovely Mama Michelle (the breeder) was mentioning that some of her dogs were getting older and should spend their time languishing on sofas instead of in kennels.
"Oh yeah, what colours?"
"Red Fawns and Fawns."
"Didn't you have a blue?"
"Oh yeah, Wedgie is available too."
So we thought about it. And thought about it. And thought about it. And were slightly afraid that Mama Michelle would have Wedgie's leash in hand to pass her off to us when we went to pick Chingmy up from boarding, but no, we picked Wedgie up in August.
Chingmy is a pretty small Shar Pei. She's just at/below knee height and weighs in at about 45lbs - 20.4kg. Wedgie is shorter than Chingmy, but weighs in at about 65lbs - 29.5kg. Their personalities couldn't be more different either. Chingmy is IN YOUR FACE. Wedgie stands there like a kissyface wag monster waiting to be noticed and petted. Although she will push in to get her fair share. Chingmy is a graceful dancer, Wedgie is a Sherman Tank and nothing is going to get in her way.
The two of them together..... :-)
OK, I will sign off for now. Not sure when I will update again, bit it will happen. Hopefully before another 4 years passes. Cheers!
