Old Dogs

I was out walking on 22nd Street when I met an old dog.
Her face has got white on it and her eyes have a bit of white in them.
I think she looks a bit like me. She is fourteen which is very old.

This is one of the oldest dogs at the park. He walks very very slowly.
In fact he just wanders about, but he knows when people bring treats.

This is us together.
There were more photos but the computer is messed up.

I am going to the park now.




  1. He is a good old guy
    and it's very good of you to hang with him
    too many pups don't spend time with the old ones
    you're a good soul Buster

  2. Buster,

    Nice pictures. Gene Hill spoke nicely about old dogs:
    "I can't think of anything that brings me closer to tears than when my old dog — completely exhausted after a hard day in the field — limps away from her nice spot in front of the fire and comes over to where I'm sitting and puts her head in my lap, a paw over my knee, and closes her eyes, and goes back to sleep. I don't know what I've done to deserve that kind of friend."

    I bet similar words will be said about you in the future.

    DCW's comment made my mom get all teary eyed, but then I got a great big hug! I'm starting to get old too, but I'm all white anyway, so I doubt anyone will be able to tell!

  4. Buster, you can learn a lot from these old guys, its great that you're hanging out with them.

  5. I always have a soft spot for old dogs... thanks for sharing and I love DCW's comment.

    Licks, hero

  6. Old dogs - the best kind of friends. I'm glad there are old dogs in your life Buster.

  7. Buster, stick close to those elders and you'll learn wonderful things. My muzzle is getting a bit
    gray but I'm only 6. Every part of a dogs life
    has goodness in it! Have fun, Opie

  8. Old dogs are special!
    Nice pix!!!
    Mum has also been in 16th and 18th Street,
    and probably in 22nd, too....
    have a lovely day

  9. A pat on the head for you and your senior friends.

  10. Hi Buster,
    Thanks for sharing about old dogs. This reminds me of some of older dogs I had that have since passed. =)

  11. Hi, Buster!
    Sure is nice that you spend some time with your old doggie friends.
    Yes. They can learn a lot from them, right?
    Kisses and hugs

  12. Buster, you are a very sensitive soul. That sensitivity definitely feeds your art.

    Those older dogs have lots of soul.

    Best wishes.
