The Best Dog is a Senior Dog

SSD coverToday’s featured book isn’t a romance, but we’re falling in love anyway! XOXO is chock-full of pet lovers, so we couldn’t be happier to share the news about SUSIE’S SENIOR DOGS, which is on sale today!

If you don’t know it already, Susie’s Senior Dogs is an organization dedicated to finding happy Forever Homes for elderly dogs in shelters all across the country. It was founded by author Erin Stanton, and named after Susie, the sweet senior dog she and her husband Brandon adopted off a street corner in New York City. SSD built a Facebook page that now has over half a million followers, all sharing support and news about adopting senior dogs. (You can find her on Twitter and Instagram, too!)

In Erin’s book, you’ll read about some of the site’s most popular adoptees, and also read many brand-new, never-posted stories of wonderful dogs who escaped difficult situations to find the perfect homes for them. And as if that wasn’t enough, Erin is donating her proceeds to animal rescue causes, so she and Susie can continue helping senior dogs for years to come!

Check out our video (featuring Susie and her “little brother” Simon at a photo shoot for another of our fave dog books, Tails from the Booth) and some of the wonderful pictures of senior dogs enjoying their brand-new copies of the book!

How can you resist these proud little “authors”?

Sit, stay, smile! Furry friends meet photo booths in this quirky photography book that captures all the cute canine action when the leashes come off and the dogs are the star of the show. If dogs could take selfies, it might look something like Tails from the Booth.
