Hello beautiful soul!

When my sweet dog Dibsy passed on September 15, I decided I would foster a senior dog. I’ve always wanted to play a bigger part in helping animals find their forever homes. And senior dogs are the best: housetrained, calm, grateful, loving, and wise.

Within a couple weeks, I picked up my first foster pup. Her name is Mia and she’s a rat terrier mix in desperate need of dental care and weight loss. Other than that, she’s perfect in every way.

So perfect, in fact, that we’ve decided to adopt her. That’s why they call me a failure…a foster failure. I told the animal rescue organization that we really need to come up with a better name for foster homes that become permanent homes. It is not a failure at all. It’s a wild success. We set out to find a permanent home for an animal in need and that’s exactly what we did. My family and Mia both hit the jackpot!

November is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month. Senior pets are the most overlooked in the shelters because most people are looking for puppies and young dogs. Most people don’t know how awesome senior pets can be.

Here are a few reasons why I will only adopt senior animals:

* They typically have better manners, know their basic commands, and are already housetrained
* Their size and temperament is already established and their behavior is more predictable
* Their exercise needs are less than a young dog’s
* They are grateful, appreciative, and unconditionally loving

Bringing a new animal into the home is a big commitment and transition. Adding Mia to our family has been a true blessing. If you’re ready to open your heart and home to an animal in need, please consider adopting a senior pet.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving holiday filled with warmth, love, companionship, joy, and connection.
