November is a month that I can really get behind on the pet event calendar. This month marks not only my favorite food holiday, Thanksgiving, but also the kick off of Adopt A Senior Pet Month.
I often tell people that one of my favorite types of dogs are old ones. The golden years: full of naps on the rug in the sun; ambles about the neighborhood; and treats and tummy rubs. Yet, the cuddly cuteness of new kittens or puppies often overtakes us. How could it not?
But as you consider adding to your Floofins Family, don’t forget that some of the last animals to be adopted from shelters are the seniors. Sure, the little ones are squirmy and wiggly and beyond cute. But the soul in the eyes of a dog that has reached an age of wisdom comes with some great benefits.
