    A few months ago, I introduced everybody to a community that my girlfriend started called Susie’s Senior Dogs. (Named after our dog Susie, who we adopted at age eleven and has been a complete joy.) I haven’t mentioned Susie’s Senior Dogs in awhile, because I try to keep HONY 99.9% portraits, but amazing things have been happening over there. In the past few months, Erin has connected over 100 senior dogs with homes all over the country. Almost all the dogs are over seven years old, and some have been sitting in shelters for months or years. Now they have wonderful, loving homes in which to live out the rest of their days. So if you think you may ever want a dog, know somebody who may want a dog, or just want to be encouraged by some of the wonderful adoption stories— please consider following the page. (The four dogs pictured— Eva, Savannah, Holly, and Lucy— all found homes through Susie’s Senior Dogs.)

    I can’t adopt a dog…but if you can, why not consider an older dog? These stories always make me cry.

    'Sonnet Against Sex'
    by Ross Robbins

    And the first one tore a picture
    out of an old issue of Redbook.
    “I don’t look at all the way I want.”

    Lonelily rolled down backroads
    whipping great dustclouds.
    Hip cocked to fire the killshot:

    (kind of trite, as it turned out)
    It’s almost Father’s Day, so I
    don’t buy stamps. Instead I suck

    oysters until my belly moans. Their grit
    accretes on my tongue. Beginnings of
    a continent. Continuity is overrated.

    Blink enough times and presto!
    you won’t see me anymore.
