Love Has No Age Limit

$9.95

It takes a special person to adopt a mature dog, but we’ve all had that moment just after you bring your new family member home when you think, “What did I get myself into?” Let “Love Has No Age Limit” ease your mind, and help you smoothly transition your new dog to his different surroundings.

Written with compassion and clarity by Patricia B. McConnell and Karen B. London, “Love Has No Age Limit” will have you ready from the moment you walk out of the adoption center.  With specific instructions on how best to prepare your home, recognizing and soothing anxiety, when to begin potential training, even where to best position his food bowl, “Love Has No Age Limit” will teach you to turn a potentially stressful situation into a comfortable one.

Brought to you from The Whole Dog Journal, “Love Has No Age Limit” is as valuable for the first-time adopter as it is for the “seasoned-pro”.  With it you’ll learn how to:

– Build a Relationship

– Develop Trust

– Recognize Anxiety

– Ease Fears

– Create Comfortable Surroundings

– Become Lifetime Partners!

When you adopt a mature dog you’re also adopting his experiences – some of which you might know (or at least what they knew at the shelter) – and many that are unknown.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t provide the comfort that will make him feel like he’s found the “right home”.

“Love Has No Age Limit” is your manual for successfully introducing – and maintaining – a stress-free, happy environment for your new, mature dog. Order your copy today!

Please throw the ball! ...

New, cute poses of her love affair with (somewhat indifferent and highly tolerant) Woody ...

Foster puppy loveslovesLOVES Uncle Woody. He is accustomed to this adulation, lol ...

Took a minute for ourselves. Ahhhhh. ...

Woody has a new project puppy. ...

Having hands would be helpful, but he does okay. (I think he deliberately drops his ball into places that will sometimes elicit my help...but I wasn’t helping, so he had to deal.) ...

"You're leaving us again, aren't you?" Spending long days at the emergency animal shelter, where pets displaced by local fire are being cared for by volunteers. It's hard on our own dogs, but at least they have homes. ...

One dog is enjoying our evacu-cation in a hotel more than the other.

Our neighborhood is under a mandatory evacuation due the the #bearfire, but we don't think our house is actually in danger currently. The fire went FAR, FAST, night before last, so they wanted folks out of the way. The wind has died down and the fire line is holding. In the meantime, like Woody, we will try to enjoy ourselves, until we can get back home.

My thoughts go to those who lost homes and animal friends. Best local relief org:

If I was half as brave as this pup, there isn't anything I couldn't do.

Dogs are the best, man. Surgery 24 hours ago and he is doing great. Thanks for the well wishes.
...

Stuff that's wrecked. Surgery day tomorrow. Send us good juju! ...

I know, it's a *terrible* idea to let the 70 lb pit-mix play with the puppy with the broken leg... but for crying out loud!

Vet has ascertained that the puppy's left hock was broken weeks ago, and is beyond reasonable or certain repair. So the little guy is going to have it amputated soon. In the meantime, he is a puppy... and Woody is golden. Ah, my heart. This puppy is killing me!

Fortunately, he has an adopter lined up and ready to take him.
...

Rip out your heart and hand it over. This tiny foster guy, found in a ditch and covered with fleas, has a badly broken rear leg, needs amputation. Working with a local rescue to get his surgery scheduled STAT. Hosting until he has surgery, recovers, and can find a perfect home. ...

He's a fishing dog, belongs to a fisherman. (He is actually fishing for crawdads, his dad says he catches as many as a dozen a day!) ...

When the forecast is over 105 for the next week... ...

Grandson watched an episode of Stranger Things with his older cousin and was too scared to go to sleep last night. We called in the sleep specialist for help. Woody is a champion snuggler...problem solved. ...
