Seniors Make Great Pets!

Exhibit A. Papa John

Papa John knows how to have a good time. He still has a lot of life left in him. He likes to run around in the muck and to play. Here he is rolling around on the bed and rubbing his face. His play is cute and fun and does not involve destroying anything ...

He also likes to sleep soundly and often ...

Homely is cute and garden gnomes are totally in :P

Senior animals have value. They live everyday to the fullest and they love with all their hearts.

I love all my dogs each in their own way but Eli warms me right to my heart. He is so wrecked and ancient --he looks like he has been to war but when I pick him up and cuddle him now he licks me on the nose. In the beginning he almost bit my finger off but I just carried on and now he knows I love him and he loves me back in his own little wrecked way. Seniors rock.

We adopted a 15 year old sweet girl two years ago who has brought nothing but joy and love to our hearts and our lives. We adopted her as a promise to our 15 1/2 year old Dalmatian whom we let go in June 2009. We wanted to help more of the old girls and boys. Our girl now, Jesse, is 17 and we are in the midst of an uncertain physical challenge right now but we are loving her and embracing her in every moment. It is painful to know you won't have as long a time with your doggie, but it's so worth it. They truly are special, sentient beings and to love them in their golden years is nothing short of a gift.
