He’s so Heavy!

People are often surprised at how heavy a Pekingese can be. In fact, “surprisingly heavy” is a term used to describe certain Pekes that have a muscular, blocky body. To evaluate weight on the dog, one need only pick him or her up off a table by an inch or two to quickly ascertain, “Yup. Surprisingly heavy.” Most of the weight on these dogs is on its front end, or in dog fancy parlance, the dog’s “front assembly.”
