When I talk to people about adopting older dogs, they often don't want to because they imagine they won't have the time with them as they would with a puppy. They may be right and yet, I have know several people who have mourned the loss of a dog too young to die from cancer, from accident, from whatever. No one, man or beast, knows the number of days we are alotted on this earth.

Older dogs are obviously grateful for their new home. They are often house trained, they put up with the supervised kids and grand-kids, they are ready to share their joy of life with you and yours. I know puppy breath is hard to resist. Yet, I urge you to consider adopting an older dog. We are all aging - you are worth as much as an older person as a youngster is - though you may not have as many years left. So is an older dog. You will be blessed - I am and I want to share my blessing with you.
