Well, it’s all chronicled here – where I talk about my dadz finding a senior Shih Tzu destined to pass likely without being adopted. His name at the time was Mai Tai and well, my parents decided that since the little guy was deaf, and they didn’t want to call out the name of a cocktail whenever they attempted to get his attention, that they would change his name.
My parents tried all sorts of names, and the one they settled on? OD, for Old Dude! OD was awesome, amazing, wonderful, and revived anew living with our family. He passed at 17 and we all miss him every day. But we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to love and be loved by our senior rock star OD. Boy, he was so grateful to have been adopted – he showed us his gratitude every day, in everything he did!
If you are thinking of adopting a senior I’ve written a great article that addresses things to consider and perhaps do for a ‘new’ oldie that joins your family.
Read my article: Senior Animals Adoptions, and leave a message, letting me know what you think.
Thanks for listening about OD – he meant the world to us, and he was an amazing ‘older’ brother!
