I Still Choose You, Imperfectly Perfect Rescue Dogs and Their Senior Humans celebrates the canine-human bond. Each chapter is filled with stories from a variety of seniors who share why they found and fell in love with their rescue and how an abandoned or abused dog made their life complete. Being owned by a dog is a wonderful way to experience unconditional. Maybe your kids are out of the house, the pressures of work are behind you, or when you are starting a new chapter of your life. There are physical, mental, and emotional benefits to sharing your life with a dog. When you adopt a rescue you’re giving them a better life. You’re giving yourself one, too.
I adopted my dog as a senior and he saved my life and made it so much better in every single way. If you are senior human and adopted a rescue dog before or after you turned fifty-five, then I’d love to hear from you. You do not need to be a published writer to be considered. I am looking for good stories and about being a senior adult and loving a dog.

Saying Goodbye to a faithful friend
Our lives are made of experiences which in turn become stories we tell to others. I’m looking for honest, interesting, heartwarming, and funny first person stories about senior adults, you or someone you are close to, and their dog.
If a story makes me laugh, or cry, or think, if it gives me chicken skin, well, there’s a good chance others will have the same reaction.
I want that story that helps me and my readers to be grateful that in all the chaos of what’s happening in the world, there are always dogs.
