Help Spread Some #SeniorPetLove

Did you know that November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month?

As much as I don't want to think about or admit to it, I am the owner of two senior dogs (and two senior cats, too!)

Neeko, my princess, my heart dog, turned 7 earlier this year, officially earning the title of "senior."

She hasn't changed much since she was a puppy, but has become a little slower, a little calmer. I love her more with each passing year. She started me on this adventure, and I credit her with my passion for canine nutrition, love of photography, and general interest in all things dog. She is steady, solid, consistent.

Bruce is 8, the oldest, and my "grumpy old man." He too has become slightly calmer with age, and is becoming a distinguished grey-haired gentleman. Unlike Neeko, his body shows no evidence of slowing down with age, nor his personality. He remains as goofy as ever, and continues to live up to his nickname of "the jerk."

Senior pets have so much to offer us. They have weathered many storms, and mine love nothing more than a good meal and some good scritches.

Stella & Chewy's has partnered with The Grey Muzzle Organization to help raise awareness for senior pet adoption. The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries and other non-profit groups.

During the month of November, Stella & Chewy's is donating food to the Grey Muzzle Organization. For every photo posted, they will donate $1 of their food.

To participate

  • Post a photo of your senior pet on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
  • Use #SeniorPetLove
  • Tag the photo to @stellaandchewys.
This takes little or no time, gives you the opportunity to show off your senior pet, and helps senior pets in need!

My Rotten Dogs are Stella & Chewy's ambassadors. This post is sponsored by Stella & Chewy's but we only share information we believe in and feel to be relevant. 

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Stella & Chewy's. The opinions and text are all mine.


  1. Aaawwww this is sooo adorable. I absolutely love your pets and I will definitely participate in this and will get my friends to post their pictures of their senior pet

  2. I'm just thinking of adopting an adult or perhaps senior cat (most shelters in my area do not offer kittens) and I was wondering if it's harder for them to get accustomed to a new home. Also, I write reviews on services for essay writing at https://alltopreviews.com/services and so spend much time outside of house. Should I take some days off to spend with the new family member? Would be thankful if you could give some tips.

  3. There are several different types of arthritis that can affect senior dogs, but the most common is osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease.You can also give supplements like pet bounce for dogs in addition to your dog’s regular food to cure arthritis and joint pains in senior dogs.


Thanks for the howls!!
