The Seniors

Posted by

A pet name my daughter gave these two "old timer,"13 year old Shelties. Their owner broke her hip and had to retire to a nursing home and the dogs were left without a home. A shelter for blind and deaf dogs took them in and tried to find a new home for them. My daughter and son-in-law volunteered to provide them a home for their declining years. They manage the blindness and lack of hearing with amazing ability to get around okay...and they like their new home and seem happy to be there.

How wonderful & tender this story is..... it sounds like something that your kind-hearted daughter would do. I, too, like the softness of the painted effect.
