Old dogs, great friends!

November is Adopt-A-Senior-Pet Month, which the ASPCA and other animal welfare organizations established to bring attention to older pets that are often overlooked in shelters. If you're considering a new pet, please consider an older pet. My partner and I adopted a 7-8 year old girl last year who was overlooked for six months in shelter while those around her got homes. She has become one of the greatest loves of our life, and is the sweetest dog you could ever meet. She also makes us laugh. Every single day. If you're still asking why YOU should adopt a senior dog, check out these 10 reasons:

    1. Thanks, Shy- she is pretty cute! A true couch potato too (you're so right about the energy level). :)

  2. Good for you! What a sweet dog.
    The Corgis are 10 and 9 this year, so senior. They haven't slowed down much, however.
