November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month

Don’t let a pet’s age prevent you from adopting them!   Senior pets have so much love to offer their owners.   They are usually a bit more mellow, potty trained and yes….senior dogs can be taught new tricks.

Top 10 Reasons to Adopt a Senior Dog

1. Older dogs are house trained. You won’t have to go through the difficult stage(s) of teaching a puppy house manners and mopping/cleaning up after accidents.

2. Older dogs are not teething puppies, and won’t chew your shoes and furniture while growing up.

3. Older dogs can focus well because they’ve mellowed. Therefore, they learn quickly.

4. Older dogs have learned what “no” means. If they hadn’t learned it, they wouldn’t have gotten to be “older” dogs.

5. Older dogs settle in easily, because they’ve learned what it takes to get along with others and become part of a pack.

6. Older dogs are good at giving love, once they get into their new, loving home. They are grateful for the second chance they’ve been given.

7. What You See Is What You Get: Unlike puppies, older dogs have grown into their shape and personality. Puppies can grow up to be quite different from what they seemed at first.

8. Older dogs are instant companions — ready for hiking, car trips, and other things you like to do.

9. Older dogs leave you time for yourself, because they don’t make the kinds of demands on your time and attention that puppies and young dogs do.

10. Older dogs let you get a good night’s sleep because they’re accustomed to human schedules and don’t generally need nighttime feedings, comforting, or bathroom breaks.

October is Adopt a Dog Month!

Don’t know about you…but I LOVE dogs!!

I have had dogs since the day that I was born.  I could not imagine my life without a furry loving dog.

Lucy Bear, 11 yr old Aussie Kelpie.

Molly Macaroni, 9 yr old Beagle.

Lucy was given to me by someone who was overwhelmed by her puppy needs and Molly was rescued. These two girls have filled our home with love and much joy.   Lucy is my heart dog and Molly is my little clown.

Did ya know that every day hundreds of dogs are surrendered to shelters, are on the streets homeless or are abandoned by their owners!   All of these dogs are in need of loving forever homes.

Please do your part to help homeless dogs; spay, neuter, and adopt!

Before you decide to adopt a dog: Determining if You’re Ready

“To the world you might be one person, but to one animal you might be the world”

If you are not ready to adopt a dog, there are so many ways to help homeless dogs. You can volunteer at a local shelter, sponsor a dog in foster care or make a donation to your local shelter.

“Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe, we are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.” Roger Cara

How have dogs changed your life?  Has there been one special dog in your life?

Arooo and Woof-Woof!
