I'm pretty sure that my spoiled pooches have more than they need. What do you get the dog who has everything?
However, sometimes I look at them and have to wonder if they even know it's Christmastime at all. They get presents all year long, after all. So, with that in mind, I decided to channel my puppy love another way this year. I'm giving the gift of love to some senior dogs in need.
On her blog, Will My Dog Hate Me, Edie chronicled her life with Frankie, provided tips on caring for a senior dog. She shared her struggles and her joys. Recently, she told us about Operation Spoil Frankie as she prepared to let him go.
Sadly, Edie recently said goodbye to her beloved pal. In his memory, she has started Frankie's Fund. Donations to Frankie's Fund will be used to help The Grey Muzzle Organization provide hospice care to senior dogs in need. Edie is hoping to raise $5,000 by Christmas - I can't think of a more wonderful way to honor the senior dogs in my life than by giving the gift of love to some homeless senior dogs who haven't been so lucky.
