    Our Westie Ellie is 16, she was surrendered at 10! Best dog ever! We love her so much.

      I don’t think of my senior like well worn slippers. We are seniors together, although I am much more worn at my age of 71. My yorkipoo Kissy Girl turned 16 this year and she needs medication because of her arthritic knees, but she is also losing her hearing, eyesight plus has developed some dementia. I think if us as growing old together at times and worry if she will be alive the next time I come home from an appointment. I was hospitalized this year and that fear was on my mind the entire stay. She still gets very excited after I brush her, but not so much while I brush her. She sleeps 80% of the time and paces 5% and lays on my lap 5%, leaving me 10% to groom her. I adopted a chihuahua mix, I named Peanut, from my local shelter that turned 7 this year. So now I have 2 senior dogs and it brought out a jealous streak in both Kissy Girl and Peanut.

  3. That’s true. Seniors are a special kind of care but it’s worth it! My Helik is 15. I can’t imagine life without him!

    I lost my beloved Pog in May of this year, She was nearly 15 and a half, and i have cried every single day,
    Do you think it would be too soon to get a rescue dog,,My house isn’t a home any more.

      So sorry! I think you should think about rescuing a pup! Your heart will fill up!

      We lost our sweet lab in June. We adopted a 9 year old lab at the beginning of October. Our heart continues to heal. So will yours.

    Phoebe is 14 1/2 and the sweetest puppy ever! She is active, funny and bossy. I love her immensely!

  6. ❤️ this cartoon Amy !! Very true about senior dogs I have 2 😍😍👍👍

  7. I love that you are celebrating senior pups. We have two 12 year old girls and love them “to the moon and back”!

    We lost our 15-year-old lab recently. When it was time to find a new addition to our family, and a companion for our young lab, we thought about a puppy but decided there are old souls who need a home. We welcomed a 9-year-old lab and he is just the best. He’s loving, he naps well, he likes long walks and smelling all the new and good things our home offers. He’s fully trained and trustworthy. We just love him. I believe our beloved girl sent him to us to help heal our broken hearts.

    • Very sorry to hear Debra E on your 15yo baby & I betcha she did send the boy 🙏🥰
