The Inspiring Stories of Susie's Senior Dogs

After meeting her husband-to-be and Susie, the senior dog he'd adopted, Erin Stanton was inspired to launch a popular social media campaign (nearly 600,000 followers on Facebook alone!) and found a non-profit organization, both called Susie's Senior Dogs, to help raise awareness of the plight of older shelter dogs, who are too often passed over for adoption because of their age.

In her book, Susie's Senior Dogs: Heartwarming, Tail-Wagging Stories from the Social Media Sensation, Erin shares dozens of stories that attest to what warm and loving companions older dogs can be. Here are some of our favorites.
