Canine Tales Wanted

Send in Your Stories About Your Senior Rescue Dog

Although they are often overlooked in shelters, old dogs often have unrivaled warmth and wisdom about them. Just ask anyone who has rescued a senior canine. And while giving an aging dog a happy, loving home is beneficial to the pooch, there are often unexpected rewards for the adopter. Author Karen Simondet knows this and so has put together the Spartacus Project, a book-in-the-works filled with submitted stories about senior doggies and the value they have brought to their owners. Simondet is still accepting true-life tales for her compilation, so write up your ode to a senior doggie and send it in. Send submissions via email to by December 31, 2013.
