Bernard was left at a shelter when he was 20 years old.
He was taken into an experienced foster home.
He had stopped eating.
Then, he stopped drinking.
He went into liver failure and was put to sleep.
This is the not uncommon tale of many senior cats who are left at shelters. Bernard was lucky, actually, because he went to a foster home. Most don’t.
I don’t know anything about his prior family, the excuse for surrender to the shelter just said “allergies.”
Senior cats often do not cope well with losing their family. When taken to a shelter they not only lose their family, but are placed in a noisy, strange, environment where nothing is familiar. Many cats react to stress by not eating and not using the litter box. Some cats will adjust to their suroundings, but the older the cat the less likely they are to adjust. Many, like Bernard, just grieve themselves to death.
Bernard did not understand what happened to him and there was no way to explain it to him. One day he was

The following script is from “Sniffing For Bombs” which aired on April 21, 2013. Lara Logan is the correspondent. Max McClellan, producer.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, highly trained dogs were rushed to the scene to search for more explosives. Boston police have said dogs swept the streets in the morning and a second time just an hour before the first marathoners crossed the finish line. It’s considered likely that the bombers planted their devices well after the dogs finished sweeping the area. Since 9/11, dogs have been used more than ever because nothing has proven more effective against hidden bombs than the nose of a working dog.
The best of them serve with U.S. Special Operations and they’re in a league of their own. It’s nearly impossible to get anyone to talk about them publicly because much of what they do is classified, but we were able to talk to the people who train them for this story. We took the opportunity to ask about what might have happened in Boston while getting a rare glimpse inside the secretive world of America’s most elite dogs.
Green Beret Chris Corbin and his dog, Ax, are at 14,000 feet in the skies over North Carolina.
They’re about to test a new harness that America’s best soldiers will use to jump into combat. But it’s not for Corbin — it’s for Ax.
As they free-fall for nearly 10,000 feet at 125 miles an hour, Ax is wrapped in Corbin’s arms. They’ve been to war together, nearly died together, and they never like to be too far apart.

Many times people are afraid to adopt an older dog – not because they don’t like them, or are afraid of any extra care or money that might be needed – but because of how soon they might lose them. But death is a part of life. Imagine giving a senior dog a loving, secure, and happy retirement home for whatever time he has left. His life, and yours, will be richer for it.
The Benefits of Adopting an Older Dog
- Calmer temperaments. Older dogs are less likely to have that crazy puppy energy that can challenge even the most patient of pet owners! Senior dogs often enjoy just hanging out with their people or going for quiet walks.
- What you see is what you get. You know how big the dog is going to get (he’s already full grown) and you know his temperament.
- Many older dogs are already good house pets. They’re housetrained, know what they should (or shouldn’t) chew, and are happy to find a soft place to nap. And they’re happy to share their nap time with their people, too.
- You give a deserving dog a loving home. Every animal needs love, even older ones. They still have lots of love to give and deserve a family that will return that love.
Homes Suitable for Older Dogs
There’s no easy answer to figuring out what kind of home is best suited to a senior dog. Senior dogs’ personalities and abilities are as varied as younger dogs (and people)! Some of the things to consider, though, include:
- Easy access around the house. It’s easier for older dogs with joint or mobility problems if they don’t have to navigate a lot of steep stairs. There are ways around this, of course – many companies these days manufacture ramps that will help dogs climb onto their favorite couches, beds, etc.
- Quieter household. Young, rambunctious children or dogs (or other pets) might not be the best fit for a senior dog that enjoys his sleep!
- Families willing and able to care for an older pet. This includes time, effort, and finances. Many dogs live to a ripe old age, happy, active, and with only minor health issues. However, if the aging process starts to catch up with the pooch, his family should be willing and able to put in the extra effort and money into his care.

I’m new to the non-profit sector, especially when it comes to fundraising. Our talks in class have made me think about the small percentage money from fundraisers that actually goes towards the cause. Like most people, I thought the entire amount was donated to what it was being raised for. I had no idea that such a small percentage (1% – maybe 10%) actually goes to charity. I can understand why people don’t trust fundraisers because they see that very little of their donation goes towards the cause. So my post this week is mostly me asking two questions and posing some solutions. Please feel free to add to it and correct me where I’ve misunderstood.
1. What I don’t understand, is where all the rest of the money goes? We have talked about how if a person was hired to raise the money then some of the funds go…

There are many reasons that people do not adopt a black cat or dog. One reason is that they are superstitious. Really? Wow, not adopting a four-legged family member due to the color of their skin is just simply well silly!
