|Look! We gave him his own tags!|
Their is something so wonderful and refreshing about a senior dog. They are like a warm blanket and cup of coffee in the doggy world. I just want to sit on the couch and hang out with him all day.
If it weren't for the fact that we also have three young'ins living with us I'd probably do just that! Especially with the temperature dropping, and the threat of snow we heard about this morning on the radio.
While he waits for his forever home we're giving him the best life possible, he's enjoying being groomed by Ziva, and he takes his door guarding job very seriously. Any potential intruders beware! Between Dante, Ziva, and Eddie barking (nope Mikey doesn't seem to bark!) it sounds like the house is going to come crashing down!
However he is such a lover, Eddie has spent some time with my neighbor's kids, and little girls of a good friend of mine. He's very gentle with children and takes treats with the utmost of delicacy.
Eddie is currently available for adoption, his anxiety has come way down as he has settled into our house and the Relaxation Therapy we have been doing has been making a huge difference!
I know many people want puppies, but really? Puppies are so much work! It ends up being a give and take, do you want to deal with teething, potty training, indoor manners, chewing, destruction, or in an adult dog maybe a bad habit or two?
Adult dogs are perfectly capable of giving lots of love, and while they may not have puppy breath they are big and snuggly just the same! And so relaxing to be around, like I said - a warm blanket and a cup of coffee kind of dog. I don't have to worry about what he's getting into because he prefers his bed to shenanigans. He follows me around like a giant protector - he's a big dog! People don't realize it until they meet him in person but he is very tall.
He looks a little funny in certain angles because he has some old man bumps, but they are perfectly harmless and the vet gave him a clean bill of health!
I am very thankful this Thanksgiving, for such wonderfully behaved dogs. Although we have a very full house, I can proudly say that everyone is getting along beautifully!
