It's hard to believe this, but a lot of people think a dog who is 7 years old is a SENIOR dog! That means I've been a senior for over a year now, which is just crazy, because I don't feel a day over 2. Or maybe 3. Except for on cold, rainy days when my knees ache.
But anyway, some dogs really are kind of old and decrepit at age 7, but others are not. A lot depends on what breed they are and what kind of life they have had and stuff like that. The main thing to remember is that older dogs need love just as much as younger dogs do. In fact, they probably need it more. And what they really, really need is a nice, warm home to live in, where they will have soft beds to sleep on and yummy food to eat and lots of scratches behind the ears.
So now I'm going to tell you about some senior dogs at the Humane Society who are waiting for somebody to adopt them. Any one of these dogs would make an excellent pet, and guess what! There is a special deal going on, so the adoption fee for a senior dog is only $50 instead of the usual $130 that you would pay for a younger dog.
So those are the nice senior dogs who need homes. If you know somebody who can adopt one of them, tell that person to hurry over to the Humane Society and do it right away!
