I found this article about Empty Nesters who buy puppies.

“'People who are empty nesters but 10 years away from having grandchildren are saying it’s time for a fur baby.' He says people in their 50s have the urge to 'fill the void' for a number of reasons. One is the human need to nurture."

And then I realized that two children moved out of my mom's house and she bought two new dogs [above] Sweet Pea and Harry Socks...


  1. Guess what my partner (age 58, "empty nester") has been doing for the past several weeks? Yup - looking for a dog. Funny.
