I like older dogs. Somehow older dogs seem to have “understood …

Snootsy is a 15 years old Dachshund, aka a ‘sausage’. He’s 15 years old and he still runs.

15 years old would be the equivalent of 105 years old for us, humans. Will I be able to run down the street at 105?

Sometimes, actually more often than sometimes, he becomes grumpy, sometimes it’s the joints not working properly, sometimes it’s …

But as all Chows, she’s stubborn. Even though, it hurts to walk, every evening she goes up the stairs to go to …

This dog is patiently waiting for his biscuit. He’s patient and he wants to be paid for his work. He’s laying in the middle of the stairs. That way he makes sure that nobody can pass by and forgets that he hasn’t been paid yet. “He worked hard, now pay-up.”
