If you are an admirer of this little, flat face, hairy dog then you want to be in Denver. The Pekingese Club of America is sponsoring national specialties on Wednesday and Thursday. The Metro Mile Hi Dog Club moves the show to suburban Denver, Greely to be exact, on Friday for an all Toy extravaganza. Then everyone joins the party in Greely on Saturday and Sunday for the Evergreen Colorado KC all breed shows. The current number one Pekingese in the country is CH Pequest Match Point, who was bred by David Fitzpatrick and is owned by Sascha M. Rockefeller (and, yes, it’s that Rockefeller). So if you are in the Denver area this week, stop in and see the dog that has fascinated the rich and powerful for thousands of years.
