A long life is considered a life well-lived, and the same goes for our four-legged friends. In this heartfelt new collection from award-winning author Laura Greaves, we meet fifteen elderly dogs who, despite their age, are doing extraordinary things all around the world. No matter how old they are, dogs improve our general wellbeing, keep us fit and active, boost our mental health and reduce our stress. 

This collection aims to challenge this by showcasing the incredible lives of older dogs including:
Haole, who battled cancer, learned to surf, and changed the lives of dozens of young children with disabilities at a surf therapy organisation.
Maya, the conservation detection dog who sniffs out important koala habitat. She paved the way in research to establish the team of dogs that were involved in koala recovery during the Australian Black Summer fires.
Maggie, the Australian Kelpie from a small farm in Victoria considered to be the world’s oldest dog.
Chilli, who started his acting career later in life and was most notably featured in 'A Place to Call Home'.
Chaser, the dog described as ‘the smartest dog in the world’. She could ‘talk’, understand full sentences, and kept learning throughout her life. 

Uplifting and truly incredible, these elderly dogs have saved lives, helped the disabled community, inspired stunning artworks, and survived against the odds, proving time and time again that age is just a number. Above all, they teach us the secret to living to a ripe old age is simply to be happy, to love and be loved in return.
