SPCA SUNDAY! (Old folks edition)

Everyone loves them some pups and sometimes they overlook the older folks. My rescue thought I was a lifer--I was 8 years old and a bit poorly when I picked out my ape. So my bud Jackson, also an older gentleman, asked his ape to make this video for Malachai and Nina. They are two shar-pei (mixes, probably) who were seized from a home where they had been living without electricity and they were in poor health (along with some other sharpies.) They've been at the SPCA for a long time now and they're very sweet. They are also bonded and they share a run, love to go outside together (they're housebroken and don't like to go in their run!) and they don't want to be separated. Shar-pei rescue came and took their son (!)Warf but they're still there. So if you know anyone who has been wanting some very low maintenance dogs with great personalities who just want a retirement home OR if you know a rescue that might take them in please contact the SPCA. They really are a sweet love story that melts even my cold heart!



Thank you, Jackson and his ape for looking out for us older, more mature folks. Some things DO get better with age! (Too bad our apes don't!)

Hey, Walls!

That is one very fine old folks vid! Both of my girl's first 2 rescue Dales were of the older variety. She said they're even more practiced at breaking in hoomans than us younger pups. Someone is missing out by NOT adopting Nina & Malachi. (The Billy Holliday soundtrack made my girl think of David Sedaris doing his Billy Holliday impersonation.)

We've been bad about keeping up lately... thesis deadlines approaching. Have to defend by the 27th. We're going to get our girl there if it KILLS us.

Give some major smooches to your ma ape for doing what she does with the SPCA pups!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Grammie says, "Moco, see these older dogs. If only we had our old dogs home." We truly know the benefit old more mature K9's. How could any one resist them especially with Billie Holiday singing in the background. Once someone has had a pup similar to us they are never going to want those babes again.
Beside Grammie is as old as dirt and i am thinking that she has some cosmic bond with all things older.
