The care and concern for aging pets is a subject near and dear to our hearts, and apparently we’re not the only ones. Photographer, Isa Leshko dedicated a portfolio on her website to Elderly Animals in order to depict their dignity and beauty in their later years.
In her words, “Images of animals that are prevalent in popular culture generally depict animals that are juvenile, or at the very least, in the prime of their lives. In these images, animals are exoticized, anthropomorphized, and/or infantilized. This project examines animals who are elderly or at the end stage of their lives.”

Also, Jezebel.com in the “Dog Edition” of their series on Aging in America features the photography of Nancy LeVine who traveled across the country taking pictures for her series called “Senior Dogs Across America.”
Beautiful, adorable animals in all stages of life, and the amazing bond we share with them has always been our inspiration too.
