Celebrating Seniors on Thankful Thursday





We heard that today is Senior Citizens Day around the blogs.  So we decided to salute our Senior Canine Citizen in combination with Thankful Thursday.



Senior???  Me????  Well, I guess at 15 years and 9 months, I must qualify.




I am always finding these toys lying around the house, but I am way beyond interest in toys.  I usually end up tripping on them.




More often than not, you will find me doing a lot of this.




And you know how much I love to sleep on the hardwood floor.




But then too, I am very lucky and thankful to have a buddy who likes to have my back:)




Mom keeps trying to get me to sleep on this bed, but nope, not doing it!!!  Call me a Grumpy Ole Man - Seniors are entitled to being cantankerous.



I am very thankful to have my two packmates, but I still miss both Dakota - by first Sibe sis, and Thunder Dunder, my first Sibe brother.




And of course, I am very thankful, as are Ciara and Lightning, for the Momster who is holding some of that yummy turkey jerky she makes for us.



The pleading look!




The "c'mon-give-me-the-treat" look!



The cuteness look!



And oh, those blue eyes!




Happy Senior Citizens Day to all my pals out there who are enjoying the good life of old age like me.

Woos - Phantom

We are in the Senior Club too! You got us beat by a few years...but we are all entitled to a little crankiness now and then!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

You are the hottest looking Senior we have ever seen. Mommy would give you all the treats.

Jo's World said...

Hey, Mr. BlueEyes! You are looking just purely fine to me. Your age may be attributed to the Momster who takes such special good care of her pupkids.

Cheers,
Jo and Stella

Karen Jo said...

Happy Senior Citizen Day, Phantom. Sleep where you want and ignore the bed if you like. There's a cat bed around here that hardly ever gets slept in.

Melon said...

Oh Phantom that's such a great photoshoot, I just had to smile when I got to the cuteness look. It seems that as a senior you get handsomer every day.
On another note, my Cocoa was a definite senior too - I wonder what he and Phantom might have had to say to one another given the chance.

P.S. Every photo I see I just want to reach out and scritch those enormous ears!

CheerfulMonk said...

What a sweetheart he is! Thank you again.

Mitch and Molly said...

Love ya lots♥
