My mom is literally the biggest dog lover I know. No, seriously. She will spend around an hour debating what’s the best treat to buy for our dogs, and then settle on the most expensive one. She may even love them more than me, smh.
Can’t say I’m jealous tho, because two months ago the best thing ever happened to us – she adopted two senior furry queens! Named after the Hadid sisters, our angels Gigi and Bella are both 14/15 years old. And with almost no teeth and the goofiest smiles they’re on their way to giving the Hadids some real competition.
I’ve heard it all – why did you adopt senior dogs? One of them can’t even walk, how do you guys play with her? Isn’t it sad knowing they’ll have to cross the rainbow bridge soon?
BRB taking my bullet journal out with all my answers to Having Senior Dogs 101. From Bella, our little arthritic angel who’s livin’ life in a baby stroller these days, I learnt patience. She’s so delicate, you can’t be mad at her no matter what. Like how many times she almost jokingly rolls off the couch and gives all of us 6 heart attacks at once. Or how many times she’s stuck her tongue out at me, And with those big puppy eyes...
Gigi, who’s partially deaf, taught me that age is just a number. Our furry friend luuurves lounging in the sun for hours, and despite moving 5-6 houses in the past 15 years of her life, her ability to adapt and to adopt us as her new family showed me that love can always be found again. She’s funky and ready to take on everything with a slow wag of her tail. Because tbf when you’re 15 your standards with people are high.
Honestly, if you haven’t already, consider adopting a senior dog and making their last few years totally fab! Dog moms, lemme tell you – they’re a full-time baby business with licks for kisses!
