{This Moment} See Beautiful: Old Dog Is...

TGIF!  I wasn't sure I'd have a post for today, but then I noticed it's a See Beautiful blog hop day and when I read Sugar's entry, I couldn't not participate. 

I agree with Sugar's Mom 150% - "Old Dog is Beautiful" 

Old Dog is also...

Happy.  Just look at that smile on my Happy Old Man, Zeus.  No matter how he's feeling, he always has a tail wag and kiss for his Mommy.

Good Morning from the Happy Old Man! #dogstagram #happydog #seniordog #ilovemyseniordog #HappyOldMan #ilovebigmutts #love #smiling #mybaby

Stunning.  Lola gets compliments on her looks all the time - from strangers at the vet's office, in comments on Instagram, from the lady at the drive-through window...  Everyone seems to find the beauty in those grey eyebrows and aging snout.

Buoyant.  No matter what's going on around him, Teutul is always full of joy and ready to great you with a smile (not to say that smile isn't a little devious at times - the perpetual baby may be approaching 11, but he's still full of tricks).

Tut says Good Morning IG.. Don't forget your shades today! #dogstagram #rescued #coonhoundmix #mutt #ilovebigmutts #seniordog #ilovemyseniordog #mybaby #adoptdontshop #instadog #smiling #smile #love

Content.  We always joke about Sophie being our little "Observer," but she truly loves to just sit, watch and take it all in.  We're all so busy and always on-the-go or thinking about what needs to be done next.  My little girl reminds me to stop and enjoy life's littlest moments every now and then.

As the Lapdogs age far more quickly than my heart would like, I try to take a few cues from each 0f them on being happy - smile, be comfortable in your own skin, wag your tail like no one is watching, and slow down and enjoy the beauty around you!

I love old dogs, and yours are complimented precisely because they are happy. They are loved, and it shows!

Thank you so much for seeing beautiful with us and joining our hop. We agree, old dogs pack so much beautiful. We have a precious 13-year-old who is always dishing out beautiful!

Love it, and while the girls aren't old, they are aging and I'm grateful for every minute I have with them.
