Pekingese (Foo Dog) Reflection (Listen while you read)
Gentle are we. Protected and loved are we.
We do need to be, for we, you see, are not the average type you see.
In need of love, are we.
(Unlike the Shih Tzu (who can feel alone and unloved) the gentle Pekingese receives love (similar to the baby of a loving family). He is adored and cherished and protected from many of life’s harsher moments.
He needs to be, for this personality is somewhat fragile by nature. Those about him will pamper him and coddle him.
There is also a slight weakness of his physical form.
The arms can feel a little weak; something like a thumb when it is injured; suddenly one knows that one has a thumb!
There is also a sense of weakness about the chest.
His chest is melancholy like a small boy who awaits the dawn of something that never comes.
All of these personality traits are known to those about him; or, if not known, they are suspected.
He is generally blessed with caretakers who offer the energies of love, protection and solace from a world that, they know, hold dangers for him.
They (his carers) may not always appreciate the subtleties of those dangers however, they understand that he needs their strength.
And so it is that when we are attracted to the gentle Pekingese it is a time for us to allow ourselves to receive from those about us.)
