Ugh, there are so many wonderful dogs looking for their forever homes on Petfinder and I just want to adopt them all! Just this week, I fell head over heels for Lula, the slightly pudgy senior beagle girl; Opie the Chihuahua and Poonce the Fox Terrier, a couple of old dogs in love; Lady the big black dog (also a senior, raising the strikes against her to three); and Ladybug, a teeny tiny refugee from the puppymill trade. I’d like write about them all, but we’d be here all year. So do me a favor and just click through and read and share their stories, okay? Help to bring these lovely creatures the TLC they so deserve in their twilight years.

As you can probably tell, I was searching for a senior dog to feature this week. And the “winner” is … Spanky! Despite her unfortunate name, Spanky is a sweet, happy-go-lucky girl who doesn’t let her declining hearing and eyesight get her down. Just look at that happy face!
