9. It's tough adopting older dogs since you know it's not a whole lifetime

But I just can't seem to help it, since I've found dogs who need me. My eldest pup was my Barney who they said was 10 or 11 when he found me. He was a cocker like the dog I grew up with, but he'd been a stud dog at a "commercial kennel" until he got too old and they said he needed "a special home" since he had never lived with people and wasn't housebroken. But his foster mom, a wonderful woman who did an amazing job with him, kept in touch and still visited a few times. He was just the best dog, beautiful with the best temperament and I had him for 8 precious years. And I'm counting on having Jack at least as long.
