Turning Young Dogs Into Old Dogs, Texas Style

Updated: Oct 15, 2020

At Living Grace Canine Ranch, we affectionately refer to our monthly donors as Ranch Guardians. Typically, the first greet is a sniff, perhaps from an interesting newspaper article, then a visit to our website, followed by an all-out play bow that signals 'Let's do great things together.'

Every Ranch Guardian has a unique life story, however, all have the same compassionate trait to help canines that are relegated to the fringe of our society as 'unworthy of being a pet companion, let alone living.'

As Ranch Guardian's stories are unique, so too are their letters both in style and content. Below is one sent to us by Jean J. with the witty flavor we so dearly love about Texans. Enjoy the read and consider joining our monthly Ranch Guardian cavalry.


"I think what you are doing is amazing! I ran a horse rescue for ten years, and I always told people that they would be most fortunate if they have the room to show at least one old horse that they were loved to the very end, and I was lucky to do so for a few."

"No horses anymore, but I have found that

I enjoy turning young dogs into old dogs."

Leo left us late February and when I went to donate Leo's meds and some money to the Humane Society I was guided to an HW+ 2 yo female overgrown deer head chihuahua street dog bruiser mutt mix that I had no plans of adopting until we went back for her 2 days later.

Here's her shelter kennel picture, tell me she didn't know, something really good was about to happen.

Throughout a lifetime of loving and caregiving, my sentiment is best expressed by Curtis Salgado's, "The Greatest Wish (I Want My Dog To Live Longer)". Enjoy!
