Our slogan: Building a better life for dogs, one paw print at a time.

Well-loved dogs of today have gently eased into the role of beloved family members, respected by society as a whole. Compared with a vicious and abusive past, dogs range from pampered darlings to hard-working service dogs we could not live without.

Dog studies show that with better care, high-quality dog food and medical improvements for animals, dogs are living a lot longer. On the downside, this brings canine dementia and old age diseases into the forefront of a new era. Furthermore, studies on dog diseases are now showing that there is a strong similarity between dog and human diseases. Dogs now have a major impact on the health of both, with dog diseases a boon for human medicine.

For example, OCD in both humans and dogs show similar repetitive patterns. Whereas humans with OCD may repeatedly wash their hands, dogs with OCD will repeatedly chew on their blanket, chase their tail, or do repeated grooming.

Way Cool Dogs will be focusing on the older dog in 2017: the many dog diseases; new studies in the health field of dogs and humans;; how to recognize when your dog is aging and what to do about it; how to keep old age from taking over your dog's life and your own;; and much more. Dogs now are part of the human family, in addition to becoming a major benefit to humanity.

The Collection of WayCoolDogs will be a series of articles about the older dog. They will be focusing on the care of an older dog, their health, diseases, health, photos, and memes. Many of our older articles that focus on the elderly dog will also be listed.

We ask for those who have an older dog or who are interested in them to please follow and help promote through social sites.

Thank you,
WayCoolDogs
