I love adopting senior dogs! Sadie and Barkley are 12 and 11 and just the sweetest, most lovable animals.
The first week I had them, I kept losing Barkley! I couldn’t find him at times even in my small home. Come to find out he loves to be under things. Whether it’s a table or chair, he loves to hide so he can assess the whole room!
Sadie has become my official greeter. I own my own gift shop so I am able to take them to work with me every day. Sadie has made greeting the customers HER job. She lays near the door and when someone comes in, she will get up and go over and greet them. She loves it so much and my customers do, too. Plus, the kids love to sit on the floor with her and pet her until she falls asleep on them.
Adjusting to life with Sadie and Barkley has been super easy. All dogs that are rescued come with the unknown. Sadie and Barkley have their issues. I was told Sadie couldn’t go up and down stairs. But after trying different medications, she now is running, playing, and easily going up and down stairs.
Barkley had some dental issues. After having a tooth pulled, he is a completely different dog. No longer living with pain! He is happy, cuddlilee (is that even a word?) and just so happy.
I feel very blessed to have these two gorgeous animals as part of my family! My cat, Hermes, even loves them too!
