The worst thing about owning a dog is that they don’t live as we do.
Having a dog is like signing a contract with sadness—eventually, you’re going to have to say goodbye to a few fur friends in your lifetime. It’s the hardest thing to do. You never get over it, and you never, ever forget them. They’re always part of you.
When they have to go, you’ll know, but sometimes, when you think they’re ready for the Rainbow Bridge, they show you they have a little more love—and life—left to give.
Meet 11 dogs who aren’t quite ready to give up on life.

If you can spend time with an older pup, you’ll get so much of it and so will your senior, who can spend his or her last year in a home filled with love.
