“Me-First’ Society Has People Choosing Senior Dogs over Kids

I can't honestly say that this surprises me, but a recent study found that more young adults would rather adopt an older dog instead of a younger puppy – or surprisingly, in place of having kids.

Now, I don't consider myself "older", but I guess to humans, since I am 6 years old (a girl really doesn't like to tell her age) I am no longer a pupster.

Well, the article is quite interesting and I do approve of the model selected (yours truly).

What do you think?  Would you consider adopting a senior pet?  There are so many waiting for loving homes. 

By the way, I don't think the camera angle is very flattering-I've actually lost weight recently.
