Seniors, Selflessness, and Saviors
Many senior Bulldogs go unadopted solely because of their age. Fear that the mutual adoring relationship will end too soon may trigger us to pass on some wonderful and deserving companions.
But what becomes of the older Bullie? Some are healthy and vital while needy others suffer health challenges. Most are calm and well behaved. They yearn to drift their autumn leaves in the warm glow of family membership. Who will be their savior?
At an old folks’ institutions, loneliness darkens the lives of many neglected seniors. The toll on the weak and infirm grips the compassionate soul. Does the forgotten vintage Bulldog endure the same sadness? They have no words but the heartache in their spirit cries out to us.
The human/canine union knows few boundaries. Who amongst us loves a puppy but not the senior version? Some LSBCR adopters and foster families selflessly welcome an older Bullie into their homes and hearts, often two or more. The company of others is important to our species as we are both highly social animals.
The opportunity to brighten the ebbing days of a vintage Bulldog is unlike any other blessing bestowed upon us. They faithfully and lovingly return on the investment in Divine ways that we may not have imagined.
No matter the size and age of a family, a senior Bulldog will enrich your lives. Inspire a near miracle in a senior Bulldog’s life. Embrace the singular opportunity to cultivate happiness and vanquish hopelessness.
Listen to your heart and hear the senior Bulldog’s prayer.
