I found these beautiful images of old/senior dogs on Google Images. There were quite a few sweet sentiments about old dogs, as well, which leads me to surmise that old dogs do indeed have a place in people’s hearts, a rather special spot that puppies and adult dogs don’t garner.
There is something about the expression in an old dog’s eyes that just melts the heart. What have those eyes seen? Where have they been, what have they witnessed? What joy, or sorrow? There is such dignity, nobility even, in these dogs.
Remember, you will never have a dog for the duration of your entire life, but a dog may have you for its entire life. We ALL get old and die, every living being on Earth. So, learn now to appreciate that our beloved dogs will grow old and die on us some day, and see their beauty and grace even in old age. They will always love you with all their hearts.
Here are some sentimental quotes I found on Google Images, dedicated to old dogs:
