We’ve all known a senior dog. They’re a little more grey-muzzled, a little slower, a little sleepier and a little less likely to be adopted from a shelter, but they still have a lot of love to give and they make great companions. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve turned to our pets for comfort. For many people, our dogs have been a lifeline during a time of constant worry and loneliness. Senior dogs in particular have been thrown into a situation that they’ve never seen before.
They’ve had to stay away from their friends and family members, perhaps they’ve had their long time routines disrupted and they may not have been able to have as many adventures with their owners as before.
...so to celebrate, we’ll be bringing you a whole week of great content across our social media channels and website. We’ll have videos, stories, blogs and special guest features to keep you and your grey-muzzled pooch entertained throughout the week.
This is why we’ve decided to dedicate one day a year to #SeniorDogDay. Let’s show everyone just how amazing senior dogs can be!
Our senior dogs have been a constant in a world that’s always changing. As we move out of lockdown, we want to make up for any time that was lost during the multiple lockdowns we’ve experienced already. So join us for one whole week from 4th October and lets raise our paws to senior dogs everywhere.
