Seniors Rock #NationalSeniorCitizenDay

Happy Sunday-Fun-Day. Did you know today is National Senior Citizen Day?

Celebrated every year on August 21, National Senior Citizen Day was created as a day to show appreciation, honor and support our seniors. Which means today, we honor our two seniors, Sophie and Teutul.


2 senior dogs, Our faces may be white, but our hearts are pure gold

Not only are they beautiful white-faced babies with hearts of gold, Sophie and Tut are also my two failed fosters. Each came with their own story of survival, and each quickly stole our hearts and our home.
 
Today I am also thinking about the spunkiest senior I've ever known, my Grandmother.

Nana would have celebrated her 95th birthday this past Thursday. It's hard to believe nearly 13 years have passed since we said goodbye.

Who are you honoring and celebrating today? My list could go on and on, but I refuse to think of my parents as "seniors." After all, I'm not old enough to have parents that old, am I?

We spent yesterday with a super senior, a 16 1/2 year old mini Doxie belonging to johns aunt. She's so sweet. Your grandma was lovely

Beautiful photo of your grandmother. They were so stylish back then - so comfortable today but kind of miss the days when people dressed up to go to a nice restaurant, concerts, etc. I'm sure your parents appreciate not being considered seniors yet :) The "failed fosters" are adorable.

You ever heard of the iron nun? Talk about incredible senior! And I love white muzzles. So precious.

I have two senior mutts! Both rescues and we celebrated with lots of belly rubs and treats.

My boy especially has gotten grey and has arthritis issues, and I love taking them on walks to keep them active!

There is nothing more precious than the relationship with have with our senior animals! My old dog Bruisy and I have been together for almost 13 years and I literally know what he's thinking and what he needs, when. I was looking at pics when he was just a young guy and it's amazing... happy belated senior day to your guys!

Happy happy day! It's always wonderful to have a chance to champion those that are close to our hearts. Please give some extra smooches to your senior pups for me. I always think of my girl scout leader on days like today, who passed away over a decade ago. Every time I see a hawk (I've noticed quite a few today) I know she's coming around to check in.

My parent's dog, Ginger, is 10. So, I think she counts as a senior.

However, Ginger doesn't seem to know that she is 10 and continues to act like a much younger dog. We are lucky that she is still in such good health!

Lovely photos and subjects! It's hard for me to get my head around, but my corgis will both be 7 (and considered seniors) in 4-5 months. That's in addition to my senior foster dog (11) and three cats (7, 13, 16). They are all precious too!
