Senior (all of them rescued as strays) dogs have ruled our home for years!
These precious frosted faces, all rescued stray dogs have lighted up our home over the years. They left their past behind and gave us the opportunity to give them a second chance at life. Once you bring home a senior dog, tending to them becomes a habit. That said, doing so is never a burden, but rather a privilege. They are the biggest blessing and the best companion animals one can ever have.
