Handsome Eddie

Meet Eddie!

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.

Handsome Eddie is such an easy keeper. Wouldn't it be nice if we could find him a forever home for his Christmas present?

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!


  1. Eddie is so handsome, and my Christmas wish is that he has a forever home for the Holidays. I agree with you, there is something wonderful and comforting about having a senior dog in the house. I'd take one over a pupy anyday

  2. Eddie looks like a super sweet guy. I hope he finds a home soon!

  3. What a cutie. Hope he finds a forever home before Christmas.

  4. A dog is awesome through all stages of life!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. I hope Eddie finds his furever home soon, but in the meantime thank you for providing him with such a great place to stay. So much better than a shelter!

  6. I know what you mean. I love my newly senior dog!

  7. Sweet pups.

    thanks for visiting our blog and leaving your suggestions for the bunny dilemma. We have tried to lure him into a basket but he is just terrified. It is going to be hard to get a carrier in there because I have to go through the window or up and down a ladder at a very odd angle - I am too old for that stuff. We are hoping he will climb the plank once it is dark and quiet. If not, we will have to get Critter Control to come out and remove him.

  8. Yep, senior dogs are great. But those eyebrows! Who could resist them?

  9. Glad to hear everyone is settling in and getting along! I love puppies, but realistically, my next dog will be a senior or at least middle aged. While it's adorable to watch a puppy get excited over a leaf blowing in the wind, I also prefer the quiet companionship of an older, calmer dog. :)


Barks & Howls are always welcome!!
