Too many people are unwilling to adopt a senior dog. People might believe that these dogs are not going to live long enough to make the adoption worth it. Senior dogs get adopted much less frequently and many of them are euthanized. People who are adopting dogs in order to rescue them should really be able to get a lot out of adopting an older dog, since they are almost certainly rescuing them from death.
People should know that adopting a senior pet does not necessarily mean what they think that it might mean. These pets can still be active. Dogs age at different rates. Smaller dogs have longer lifespans than larger dogs.
Got out the suitcase and started getting organized for my trip to New York this coming weekend. Engelbert is the only one that’s really supposed to come with me, but technically the suitcase size qualifies as a carry-on and technically these five fit in it. #howtogetonthenoflylist ( There are few tickets still available.

I like how you can see Melvin’s different expressions through his ears, in contrast to Edsel who seems to have the exact same look on his face no matter what the circumstances are.
It really is possible to teach the proverbial old dog new tricks, contrary to popular belief. Since a lot of older dogs have been well-trained previously, a lot of people will find it easy to add them to any household. Many less experienced dog owners will prefer senior dogs, which are not as energetic and which will probably be able to adjust to a new household more easily.
