A PICTORIAL LOOK INTO THE PAST

Nash County Animal Friends’ Notebook

Who doesn’t love the mental image of sitting on a porch in a rocking chair on a quiet sunny day, with an old dog at your feet? Old dogs should be cherished. After living their lives obeying their masters through good times and bad, they have proven their loyalty.
It seems that lately we have had an influx of senior dogs. It breaks our hearts to see them sit in the shelter, confused and scared, with one eye always watching the kennel door for their master to come back.
