Sometimes it is easy for us dog sites to focus on the cute, the young, and the fluffy (the dog blog version of the good, the bad, and the ugly), but sometimes lose sight of talking about older dog. Mature dogs. Dogs who have been around for a long time. And when it comes to web videos, the vids are almost always quirky and cute. Well, the following video is about how one man treats his old dog, and it just might rekindle your faith in people.
See, what we forget is, a dog is a dog. An old dog is still a dog. A young dog is a dog. Sometimes we ignore the older dogs (just like society ignores the elderly), but this vid will remind you just how much love exists between a dog and its owner (though we prefer the term, good friend to master or owner). What you will see here is an old dog who has some trouble getting around like it used to. You will also see the man that adores that dog so he wanted to make sure it could keep joining him on their adventures.
Well, I wont spoil it for you, but this is powerful stuff. A simple gesture by the man that just shows how much the old dog means to him. Excuse me for a second, I have something in my eye.
