I listened to this report on the radio, from NPR, last week, about the needs of senior dogs, and how many dogs are take to the shelter in their old age, and then came across this little guy on PAWS' website (a senior dog who needs a home):
This one really struck me because he was a former shelter dog at PAWS, and has now been returned in his old age. I'm really such a sucker, but I think, when we've settled down a bit, I could really get hooked on being a "retirement" home for older dogs, one at a time. It'll be hard, I know, but so much better, knowing they're spending their golden years with a family to love (shh... don't tell Scott yet!).
I'm such a sucker.
