Saw an ad on an Australian free classifieds site for a 17 year old dog that sounded like it was going blind, deaf, as well as suffering from arthritis. If I recall correctly, it was their son's dog and they had been taking care of it for a number of years, and had expected it to have passed away already. I believe the reason they were rehoming the dog was because they wanted to travel.
Nothing makes me more furious than seeing people trying to fob off the responsibility (and costs) of a senior pet onto others. Especially for such frivolous reasons.
