Great stuff for Pekingese
Pekingese were meant for emperors!
According to the Pekingese Club of America, "Though the Pekingese was developed as a companion dog, it was originally bred in China specifically as an ornamental accessory for Emperors and courtiers in the Forbidden City of Imperial China as well as a personal guard dog. The smaller ones, that is. The smallest ferocious ones, called 'Sleeves,' were carried in the large sleeves of garments and served as the ancient Chinese version of mace to defend and scare off anyone threatening the courtiers.
The ancient Chinese standard refers to Pekingese having specific colors to match certain wardrobes. This suggests that Pekingese were literally an extravagant fashion accessory in a society and culture known for exotic excesses and lavishness. The Pekingese remains excessively exotic and lavish today."
The breed is thought to be over 2000 years old, one of the oldest in the world. Current trends favor a very plush coat of fur, but historically there has also been a lighter, more spaniel-like coat. Peke fur comes in just about any doggy color, and aside from daily brushing, is a fairly healthy and low-maintenance dog, requiring a minimal amount of exercise.
Here at Golly Gear, we know how to treat Pekingese like the royalty they are!

Beautiful dogs - in history, art, and real life!
The Water Rover is the most ingenious invention we've seen to carry your little dog's water supply! The Water Rover even has a patent in the U.S.
The cap has a built-in belt clip, so no hands are needed to carry the Water Rover! To fill the Water Rover, just unscrew the wide-mouth cap and fill with water and perhaps some ice on a hot day.
When your pup needs water, just pull out the stopper and put the Water Rover down.
Water flows into the bowl instantly. The flow will stop automatically - the bowl will not overflow! When your little one is finished drinking, tilt the bowl back so that the extra water flows back into the bottle - no waste!
