Puppies are cute and funny and snuggly, but nothing compares to spending years with your dog, until you’re both older and wiser and, sure, a bit slower. And while it can make us a bit sad to watch our pups wobble and gray, the truth is that they’re not terribly bothered by it.

And these 17 pictures prove that old dogs are the best dogs, and maybe even the best choice the next time you’re looking for a new friend to bring home.
