Maybe your dog doesn’t have a graying muzzle but seems a bit creaky after a walk, or snores like a walrus in the winter. And even if your dog isn’t getting on in years yet, sometimes she’ll look at you and you’ll see a little thought bubble above her head that reads, “Do you have to walk so FAST?” or “What’s with all these skyscrapers? In my day, it was all fields around here,” or “What’s this astronaut kibble you’re dishing up? Gimme an old-school bone, pronto.”
Emmy-winning TV producer Tom Cohen noticed a lot of doddering dogs with droll expressions, so he compiled a bunch of photos into his new book, Dogs with Old Man Faces: Portraits of Crotchety Canines. Because November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, we’ve been thinking a lot about grizzled old senior dogs, and Tom’s book really tickled our funny bones.
Check out some of the photos from the book, with Tom’s captions, and then find out how to win a copy of Dogs with Old Man Faces.
We’ve got two copies of the book to give away to Dogster readers. To enter the contest, simply tell us in the comments below what your salty old dog would say if you snapped a candid pic of him or her. If you can upload a goofy photo as well, even better — we’ll select our favorites for a photo post!
