Distinguished dogs (10 photos)

Just a collection of 10 beautiful senior dogs. Some are in loving homes. Some are up for adoption, which I’ve indicated.

Few things break my heart as much as seeing an older dog in a shelter. The black Lab named Thea featured in last week’s post is still up for adoption with the County of San Diego. I hope someone gets her out of there!
