Taking care of older dogs is not an easy task. Many people shy away from responsibility by letting go of their dogs before they get too old. Fortunately, countless people have committed themselves to caring for their dogs until the day they kick the bucket.
Yeppi and Kami are examples of two dogs that have lived way past their expected age. Yeppi is 20 years old, and her son Kami is 18. They are both very healthy.
Life living with senior pups comes with its own challenges. For example, Kami gets praised whenever he pees near the potty mat. He isn’t accurate, but at least he is trying.
Another added responsibility is grooming. Professional dog groomers often decline serving old dogs. The groomers don’t want to induce a state of shock and be responsible when something bad happens to the dogs because of old age.
The owners have to take the time to groom their dogs. Also, the owners wished they had made more videos of Yeppi and Kami when they were younger. That’s their only regret with their dogs. They still a few footages they can look at to remind them of how pretty their dogs once were.
The owners prepared a professional photoshoot for their dogs. Yeppin and Kami took turns and had their photographs taken. They got to wear cute decorations on their head, and the owners were happy to have additional photos for their collection.
After the photoshoot, the owners took their dog on a calm stroll. During the time, cherry blossom trees were in full bloom. After the stroll, the two dogs were placed in a trolley.
When the owners got back home, they got emotional. They know that Yeppi and Kami won’t be around for much longer. That’s why they’re trying their best to make the rest of the dogs’ life as comfortable as possible.
