The pups were a mix of my dog (Pekingese) and Basset.
She was dirty and slept with the first one she saw i guess , we didnt know she was pregnant till she was 3 pounds heavier XD.
I would have prefered if they were all Pekingese . but its okay , her second batch of pups she had this year in May were all white and black pekingeses XD
I love the story of the breed....
A lion and a marmoset fell in love. But the lion was too large. The lion went to the Buddha and told him of his woes. The Buddha allowed the lion to shrink down to the size of the marmoset. And the Pekingese was the result.
The second, less-common, originating story is The Butterfly Lions:
A lion fell in love with a butterfly. But the butterfly and lion knew the difference in size was too much to overcome. Together they went to see the Buddha, who allowed their size to meet in the middle. From this, the Pekingese came.
Another legend says that the breed resulted from the mating of a lion and a monkey, getting its nobleness and coat from the former and its ungainly walk from the latter.
Because the Pekingese was believed to have originated from the Buddha, he was a temple dog. As such, he was not a mere toy. He was made small so that he could go after and destroy little demons that might infest the palace or temple. But his heart was big so that he could destroy even the largest and fiercest.

Funny because i have 2 Brasilian Mastiffs , and my Pekingese is fierce alright , she commands the house and territory. Bites , scratches , and barks .
She loves to walk around the big dogs flaunting her little tail XD
