I love senior pets. I love the grey muzzles and the droopy eyes and the slow walks. Our Chester is definitely a senior, at 10, and Olive is getting there... she's 8 now. The cat is 10 also, so I think she's on the edge of seniorhood.
When we went to the shelter to adopt, we knew we wanted an adult dog. We wanted a precious girl or boy who had been left behind, for whatever reason. And, we got our Chester. He is the love of my life! (after Tom, of course!) What a gentle soul he has. He tolerates the wild Emily and is a good friend to the tiny Olive. And, he's curious about Molly, the kitty, but he doesn't disturb her.
Did you know November is Senior Pet Month and that The Grey Muzzle Organization is working overtime to help senior dogs across the United States?
