Age Doesn’t Come By Itself

As I’ve got older, I’ve become more aware of my own mortality. I’ve had to visit the doctor more over the past couple of years than ever before. My eyesight isn’t what it was, and I’ve had to start wearing reading glasses. I also wrote my will, so that if the worst should happen, at least my family knows what I want done with everything.

But what about my dogs? Fortunately for me, I have a wife and children that are home to take care of them. Not everyone is so lucky. If you live on your own, how would anyone know that your pets are home alone if you were suddenly taken ill and unable to communicate? How would anyone evenĀ know that you have a pet at home alone?
