Senior dogs are often overlooked in shelter and rescue situations for one reason – they are old. With age can come issues with mobility, hearing, sight and other common concerns. But dogs in or approaching their golden years must not be dismissed. Turns out, there are several amazing reasons to adopt a senior dog. The benefits far outweigh any minor health issues they may have, and when you earn the love of a senior dog, you’ll understand how truly special they are.
Many people decorate their homes with paintings, tapestries, pottery, sculptures, and other works of art. If you are thinking of adding some artwork to your home, there are many different beautiful types of art that you can choose from. You can add a painting of the ocean, or a beautiful vase.
However, even though many different types of art can help to add to the beauty of your home, few can have the emotional impact of a pet painting from Paint Your Life. Here at Paint Your Life, we take a photo of your pet (or pets) and turn that photo into a beautiful canvas painting.
Yesterday Wynston was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer (ulcerative keratitis – a medical condition in which the cornea becomes inflamed) in his right eye. In this post I’ll recap what lead up to the diagnosis, how Wynston is handling it, and what our medical treatment plan is moving forward.
Wynston has made me the luckiest dog mom in the world. He’s the extra most bestest Chihuahua to ever exist. Okay, I may be slightly biased, but he’s truly my heart dog. I often wonder if I’ll adopt another Chihuahua after Wynston, because I feel like he’s one of a kind. He’s taught me that Chihuahuas, although tiny and portrayed poorly in the media, are delightful, loving, dedicated dogs. I personally think Chihuahuas are the best dogs ever, and here I explain why.
It’s no secret that dogs live for an incredibly unfair amount of time on this Earth. Ten to twenty years isn’t nearly enough time with our beloved furry friends, whom offer us so much unconditional love and companionship. One thing I’ve noticed in the last six years or so of blogging is that pet parents tend to wait until their babies pass away to “honor” them. Some people don’t even realize how much their dog, cat or other pet meant to them until they are gone.
It breaks my heart, really. This is why I spend so much of my life dedicated to giving Wynston the best experience on this Earth as possible. For many years I’ve been stressing to people that it’s so important to honor our pets while they’re alive, not just when they pass.
