Two senior dogs living their best lives

Posted

In celebration of Adopt-a-Senior-Pet-Month, I would like to introduce you to Kim Waters and her two senior dogs, Lulu and Buddy. Kim and her husband, Tony, are residents of Twin City.

Lulu, a 15-year-old Chihuahua mix, was adopted by Tony and Kim two years ago after her owner passed away from brain cancer. Lulu was a very vocal dog. The whole time I was there, doing the interview, Lulu talked to me. ( I just wish I knew what she said.) Maybe she was trying to tell me she was so thankful to be in a loving home where she’s a bit spoiled.

Buddy is a 15-year-old Shepherd mix that Tony raised as a puppy. Buddy has been a great companion dog all these years. As the years have gone by, he’s not as active as he once was, but his love and loyalty for his family is still there.

Kim says she really enjoyes having senior dogs, “They come with so many benefits. They are already housebroken, and they don’t drag you all over the yard when walking on a leash. They also have no expectations, just gratitude.”

Lulu and Buddy are two fortunate senior dogs. They are living a great senior dog life in a loving home with two special people.

If you are thinking about adopting a pet, you may want to think about adopting a senior pet. But first, before adopting any pet, do your research. Learn as much as you can about the pet before bringing one home. Be sure it is the right choice for your lifestyle, home life or family. Before adopting any animal, be sure you can provide a loving home and provide everything it needs to keep it healthy and happy. In return, it will give you years of unconditional love and loyalty.
