Gunner is an old soul. We’ve known it from the moment that he joined our family and saw how incredibly gentle he was towards everyone. He and Lil Man quickly became best buds and we knew right away that the boy and his dog were meant for each other ? there’s no doubt about it. You can see the love between them when they cuddle. It really is priceless.
Gunner is starting to get old though. He’ll be 8 years old in November and you can just see the age in him. He’s been considered a “senior” since age 7 and you can notice white patches in his fur that were never there before, and?graying in his face. He’s a “mutt” if you will, a mixture of a number of different breeds; so many in fact, that the organization we had rescued him from got him neutered?before they would even let us adopt him.
Our boy may look old and sometimes he might even feel old, but we?gradually made a switch and’started feeding him Purina ProPlan Bright Mind dog food to help increase his cognitive awareness. The glucose metabolism begins to change in a dog’s brain at around age 7 and can affect his memory, learning, awareness or decision making so Purina ProPlan Bright Mind helps to promote alertness and mental sharpness in dogs over the age of 7 thanks to its enhanced botanical oils.
Owners my notice a difference in their senior dogs who eat Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind daily, potentially being more playful and able to better adapt and cope with change. The owner-dog interaction could potentially change too with the help of Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind. So we’re trying to keep Gunner young at heart by helping this old dog remember his old tricks.
You can find Purina Pro Plan Bright Mind dog food at PetSmart and it’s available for both large and small breeds. It’s easy to find, towards the back of the store – you’ll see the black sign that reads “Purina ProPlan” right above the food.
We love our Gunner and want to keep him as happy and healthy as possible for as long as we’re blessed to have him in our loves. If we can help him stay more alert and mentally sharp in his old age, I’m all for it. We treasure those rare moments when the “puppy” in him comes back out! So we’re going to keep helping this old dog remember his old tricks.
