I do have another dog, he is also 15 now. He's my anxiety support dog. Goes to all my therapy sessions with me

Dogs are great therapy. I love walking them or petting them or just sitting in quiet with them.
I just read about Dodger and Patch being nominated for a Hero Dog award! That's so cool. Your story was moving and inspiring. Gives me a glimmer of hope for my agoraphobic, suicidal, hoarding, depressed (major recurrent) sister that I (also dealing with anxiety, depression, hoarding and ADD) have been trying to care for for about 20 years now. Though she has dogs and always has dogs... Maybe a husky would do it lol.

It seems so unfair that they should have to experience death and sickness.

What's your other pup's name? And, wow...two 15 year old dogs? That's exceptional. Do you have any tips for longevity? Do you do anything special?

I'm going to go over to check out Dodger's FB page. Give your furbaby some love for me. Thanks for sharing.
Hi! My other dog is Patch. He also has a FB page (Patch the therapy dog)

I had them both for many years. Patch had a hard time with the loss too. I devoted my life to them. Like some parents give everything they can for their kids, I did for them.

I made sure to walk them every single day, no matter how cold it was. I was always making sure they were healthy and bringing them to the vet. Did a lot of home cooked foods/treats as well as high quality kibble.

I've truly no idea, I am just really blessed. Typically huskies live around 10-12 years. Granted these are both mixes but still.

Patch is 15 right now, he will be 16 in May.

Thanks for liking my page for Dodger!

Hello, I definitely understand the loss felt deep in your heart.
I miss my baby Widget and little guy Jaxton to no end. We were ripped apart almost a year ago and I cant measure the sadness I feel everyday, it seems like mornings are not the same without them at the side of my bed messing with my face with their noses to wake me up.
and then there is the worry if they are being loved and cared for like they deserve....
i sure hope and pray they are
I love you Widget and Jaxton you will live in my heart and mind forever

My husky is sleeping in his chair with a toy under his head. So cute. At least it's some happiness after my terrible day

Sounds cute DP. I always thought huskies were a cool breed.
