Advantages of having a senior dog


Recommended Posts

1) Dog sleeps through 2 4.4 earthquakes, epicenters not all that far away.

2) Whilst I am calling family and friends to assure them I'm safe, Dog continues to sleep. 

3) Whilst I am checking/updating bug out bags (one for human, one for dog) Dog rolls over in his sleep and groans a bit.

4) Dog continues to sleep until his own little brain reminds him it's time for a walk.


Works nicely for me, as well.

So, so glad to hear that you all are safe!!  Yep, there are a few benefits to getting old (for both humans and canines!) Good dog, Gibbs!  Always been my favorite dog (without even meeting him!) with my favorite name of my favorite TV character!  :)

Glad that the earthquake left you and yours intact!  (And thanks for the chuckle).

And yes, there are advantages to older dogs, not to mention that for me, the older a dog gets the longer I have had that dog and it always seems as if my love for a dog keeps growing even past the point where I thought I couldn't love them more. :-) My elder gentleman is probably about 14 as well, and I am blessed by his presence every day.

D'Elle I think dogs in general are a blessing. Just about every time I'm out and about w/out Gibbs, when I see a dog I Can Not Resist Asking, 'Can I pet  your dog?' Could be a kind of addiction, but all in all  a beneficial addiction. I'm an introvert, towards the extreme end of the scale, but will head right for someone with a dog.

Me too. And if someone wats to talk to me about my dog - or theirs - I am all over it, whereas I would be unlikely to converse with a stranger otherwise. Dogs are my favorite thing, so anything concerning a dog is of interest to me. I could (and have) talk for hours about dogs. And I always ask if I may meet a person's dog, unless it is a service dog or otherwise obviously unsuitable for petting.
