Loving Old Dogs

Their time with us 
is more important than our time with them. 
 Adopt a Senior Dog.

  2. Old dogs for the rest of my life. My 15 year old snores gently by my feet as I type this.

    It is a consideration that they 'cost more' (they are old, they get sick, they break teeth... lots of issues). None of us have any way of knowing how long we have left, but at 65, there is a certainty of mortality that did not exist at 50. I have made pacts with my 'dog loving' friends, that we will care for each others dogs for the rest of their lives, if something were to happen to us.

    Still, I will seek out abandoned older dogs going forward. I am hoping I can find one that will be comfortable with my on the boat as I, once again, leave my land base and take to the waves.

    Fair Winds,

  3. Yes, old people and old dogs both have a lot to offer!
