Senior dogs indeed make wonderful companions.
They’re wise and they have a more mellow attitude.
Anyone who has adopted a senior dog knows just how charming these animals can be.
Sadly, there are still a lot of people treat the process of welcoming a companion animal into their home as a shopping experience and are always looking for the cutest and youngest pups.
This most certainly leaves lovable and deserving senior dogs in shelters where they can become unbearably lonely. Thankfully, though, there are people out there who are willing to give a senior dog a chance.
Take Julie Docherty, who own not one, but four senior chihuahuas!
Their names are MoMo, Choli, Paloma, and Benito spend their days eating, napping, sunbathing, and just making the most of their golden years.
These guys have gotten pretty used to their way of life but just recently, their world was rocked when Julie arrived home with a mysterious bundle of fur in her arms – a kitty! At less than one month old, this kitten, now named Rosita, was unsurprisingly full of energy and always ready to play.
The quad-squad was a little leery of Rosita at first, but before no time they were hangin’ out like they had been together their whole lives. Meet the crew! It may take you a second to locate Rosita, but keep looking, she most certainly is there!
Actually, Julie didn’t just adopt Rosita. She actually rescued her.
Some people had been tossing the innocent creature around and Julie just knew she had to take in this little kitty and give her a better life.
Rosita gets the pups to play with her!
Paloma teaches Rosita the art of laying down!
It’s an amazing relationship!
Rosita has gotten so close to the pups that sometimes it’s actually quite hard to even tell them apart!
Sometimes they even sleep in each other’s beds!
Sometimes they all just rest on the carpet!
No matter how they choose to play or relax, one thing is for sure: a crew that rests together, stays together!
We here at The Best Cat Page hope these guys are able to enjoy many more happy years in each other’s company.
Although this tiny kitten still has to recover from her traumatic start to life, it appears she’ll at least be able to do it with her chihuahua grandparents.
Best of luck, Rosita!
