Senior Citizen's Day

Some of my best furfriends are Senior Dogs/Cats and I've learned sooooooooo much from dem.

Dis post is dedicated to all my old Senior Dog furfriends (you know who you are).
Here is wee little story dat I saw (when I was workin on my yaptop) and it made me think of all of you.

I'm channelin my inner Senior.

Old Senior Dogs are Always Thinking

An old senior Dog starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a panther heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old senior Dog thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep do-do now!"

Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther is about to leap, the old senior Dog exclaims loudly,

"Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around here?"

Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.

"Whew!," says the panther, "That was close! That old senior Dog nearly had me!"

Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the panther. So, off he goes.

The squirrel soon catches up with the panther, spills the green beans and strikes a deal for himself with the panther.

The young panther is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!"

Now, the old senior Dog sees the panther coming with the squirrel on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?," but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old senior Dog says...

"Where's that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another panther!"

Da Moral of this story...
Don't mess with the old senior dogs... Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery!
B.S. and brilliance only come with age and experience.

Have a great day (all ya Seniors)!
