Our pets are important to us no matter their age….this is how it should be… but in my travels on twitter and other sources I hear about seniors being turned in to Humane Societies or people just being tired of having their pet for a duration of time and surrendering him or her.
This is NOT how it should be!
A pet should be loved no matter their age just as person should! Older is what happens to efurryone. The unbreakable bond of love should strengthen not weaken….that is not love at all but convenience.
I’m here to voice that Seniors MATTER and here are some resources, including rescues that feel the same way!
Senior Pooch was created as an homage to the senior dogs that I’ve been lucky enough to shared my travels. Somewhere along the line, people started sharing their own stories with me about their older canine companions.Given all of the challenges that first come to mind when people think about owning an older dog I wanted to create a place where those folks who know how rewarding it is to own a senior pooch can share their stories, as well as how they worked through the tough times.
My goal is to support the adoption of older dogs and show those people who are on the fence, that they can make a difference. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter Facebook
The Senior Dog Blog This blog is dedicated to all the dogs out there that have a few great years under their fur! The dog who has seen you mature, seen you through hard times, seen you laugh and cry or may have been there through a relationship or two. The “old faithful” guy or girl in your life that you know would always be waiting for you to come home with open paws! The one who is always happy to see you and can’t wait to get your love and attention but would always give you so much more in return. We know, in our hearts, that even without a spoken word, this dog has helped us through many hard times and has been there to rejoice in our good times. We thank you for always being there and for somehow just always knowing what we need to make us feel better.
