Adopt A Senior Dog!

November is adopt a senior dog month, so I thought I’d talk about my Lucy. Although Lucy wasn’t adopted, but born into our family. Lucy is our 12 year old Chihuahua/Yorkey mix.

She loves to cudle under the blankits with me. She’ll be content to lay in bed on most days. She still loves to play with toys and get treats. She still barks at the door to let us know someones there. She still knows how to do some basic obedience. She loves to be with her people.

A lot of people will reject senior dogs because they have health problems, but they still need a home. There previous owner could have past away or they didn’t have money to take care of them. I wouldn’t want my Lucy to spend the rest of her life in a shelter! I think a senior dog would be great for a first time dog owner because they can still teach you responsibility and you’ll have a companion. They are offen low energy and in need lots of love!

If you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see next for Nanowrimo, please let me know in the comments or send me an email to: viblindresources@gmail.com

  1. Great post. I loved my little Dog, Noodles, until the day we had to say goodbye to her. Adopting an older dog is a great idea. I will be sharing this post on my Twitter feed. 🙂
