Notes: This spunky senior has a lot of life left in him! Kato is 10 years old, but he sure does not act it! He loves to do zoomies, moonwalk after he goes potty, play bow with his foster mom when she scratches a really itchy spot, and his most favorite: chew on natural treats like pig ears, hooves, knuckles, and horns. Kato would make an amazing companion in a home with no cats or other small animals (chickens, rabbits, etc.) as he does have a high prey drive. He gets along great with the dogs in his foster home. KATO, Chow Chow, Senior, Male, Large. House-trained, Vaccinations up to date, neutered. Good in a home with Other dogs, children. Prefers a home without Cats.

ONE BY ONE

One by one, they pass by my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, they say
Way past his time, he can’t run and play
They shake their heads and go on their way
A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems that I am wanted no more
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong
I got in their way, my attitude wrong
Now I sit in this kennel, where day after day
The younger ones are chosen and taken away
When I had come to the end of my rope
You saw my face and again I knew hope
You saw past the grey, the legs wobbly with age
And felt I deserved life beyond this cage
You took me home, gave me food and a bed
You gently stroked my poor tired head
We snuggle and play, you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, and make sure I know
Although I have lived most of my life with another
You outshine them with a love so much stronger
I promise to return all the love I can give
To you my dear friend, as long as I live
I may be with you for a week, or for years
We will share many smiles, and a few tears
When the time comes, that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve
When I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all who will hear
Of the person who made my last days so dear.
