Here's what I think. I think people who want to adopt older dogs are magic . The magic part is because they care more than anything about helping an older dog. For them it's the most important thing! And in my case, the magic is twice as big because my new mom and dad adopted AAGA Zooey too! We are brother and sister now and we live in Florida and have a wonderful life. We each have our soft beds (which is my favorite thing even though Zooey likes to climb on the couch next to Dad) . Who would have thought that an old boy from the streets and an old girl who lost her home would end up feeling like a couple of youngsters? Magic can do all kinds of things of which you could never imagine!! Your happy boy, Homer.
