#HoomansoftheDogHood

For the past few months, theDogHood has become such an integral part of our lives. If before we were in love with these lovely creatures, now after months of studying more about their magical effects, we truly are in awe of their incredible ability to form social connections whether they are physically present or not 💕Today this point was reiterated. It was a usual morning & we were in Starbucks working, when a wheelchair slowly pulled closer. He gestured that he had seen us often sitting and talking about dogs…he initiated the conversation by writing “dog” shakily on the paper with a twinkle in his eyes, and pointing at us! We were of course delighted. Slowly a conversation started, with him writing on the paper to ask more about what we are doing and us sharing about theDoghood. He shared that he had one cute furry fella too that he had lost sometime back..….and between slow words, lots of gestures and warm laughs we connected over our favorite topic. Humans have a connection to pets that is like no other. But dogs also connect us to other people in a truly profound way, they truly break all barriers 🥰#hoomansofthedoghood #lovedogs #connections #unbreakablebond #thedoghood #petparents #starbucks #lifeissbeautiful #support @purvi_janardhan @ruchijoshi

"There is a slip of graph paper taped to the bottom edge of my home computer monitor with the words ìI donít want to sit in a cubicle anymoreî written on it.I wrote those words five years ago in my engineering notebook, sitting in my work cubicle, with the department secretaryís small Spaniel curled around my feet. She knew where to look if her dog wandered off ñ the pup loved me and I loved her. I itched to take her outside for a stroll that day, however, deadlines loomed and I was stuck.When I retired a few months later, I used an Xacto knife to excise those words from my notebook. I was staring at those same words when, bored with retirement, I searched job listings for something to fill my days. The only posting that caught my interest was an advertisement for a dog walker! I applied and I was hired.My first week, I walked a total of five miles and spent the entire weekend on the couch, recovering. I was painfully out of shape. Fast forward a few years and I was walking an average of six to eight miles a day. I wore through three pairs of New Balance sneakers. During a family road trip to Northern California, I calculated that in the last three years, I had walked to Eureka, California and back home a total of six times. Physically, I lost weight and regained my health and stamina. Pain from my arthritis disappeared. Out on the trails and sidewalks with my dogs, I was blessed with the feelings of peace and contentment that accompany canine companionship. Today I drive from house to house where I am enthusiastically greeted by dogs I love that love me back. Instead of office friends, I have street friends ñ postmen, roofers, gardeners, and people walking their dogs.Not a cubicle in sight!"#thedoghood #hoomansofthedoghood #lovedogs #walkingdogs #dogwalker #doglife #freedom #dogsarefamily #dogsmakemehappy #thedoghoodofficial

Muttville is changing the way the world thinks about and treats older dogs. Sherri Franklin started Muttville in 2007, in her own home, to save older dogs. Every day... Dogs in good health with wonderful personalities are euthanized. Why? Because they're older, and not considered adoptable. Muttville reaches out to senior and special needs rescue dogs; find homes for those dogs that are adoptable; and offer end of life care for those that are not. Muttville’s cage-free facility (first in the nation), foster program, on-site veterinary suite, and hospice program are innovations that have been lauded and emulated around the country. There is so much love and joy in these dogs.November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month . theDogHood implores everyone to support this commendable charity .
