Senior Dogs are the sweetest!
I was inspired by Melissa's post today on Pugnotes about senior dogs. Go check it out because she writes very eloquently about how older dogs can teach us wonderful things about life and about aging. Dogs don't care about a few gray hairs and some crinkles around their eyes...they just care about enjoying every day as it comes and embracing things that smell good! The painting above is of a very special senior dog I painted a couple of years ago. What a beautiful old soul he was.
One of my favorite rescue organizations that helps aging animals is SAINTS. They take in and care for seniors that have nowhere else to go. SAINTS provides a warm home and three beautiful acres in Mission, BC so that they can live out their days in a nurturing, loving environment. They have an auction coming up very soon so if you'd like to donate something to help raise funds for them...go here.
Back soon with a new dog portrait!
