Westminster Follow-Up: Pekingese is the toy breed most favoured by men

Poor Malachy the Pekingese. The little guy’s been dealing with a lot of haterz since he won the 2012 Westminster title earlier this week. While the Scottie Newsagrees that his handler, David Fitzpatrick, was a bit OCD with that omnipresent purple brush, we don’t think Malachy should be blamed for that. The Pekes we’ve known have always been pretty tough little dogs.

And according to www.webvet.com, they are the toy dog most appealing to men. Famous owners of Pekingese include Alice Roosevelt, J.P. Morgan, Elizabeth Taylor and Pakistan’s former President, Pervez Musharraf (shown below).
