Distinguished Dogs (10 photos)

I love to feature senior dogs on the blog.

This week, I’m featuring five photos from readers followed by five senior dogs up for adoption in the San Diego area where I live.

If you have a senior dog you’d like to see featured in the next “Distinguished Dogs” post, or if you know of a special senior waiting to be adopted, send your photos to
