We Produced A Music Video About Our Love For Senior Dogs, Because They Deserve It

You may be familiar with the challenges that many senior dogs face. They are often overlooked in shelters, as many people prefer to adopt puppies, and yet as they experience age-related changes like diminished senses and strength, they become more dependent on humans. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have friends who are dedicated to helping provide love to senior dogs in need. It was with some of those friends that we produced this music video for an original song called "Never Too Old to Love."

For the song's music and lyrics, all credit goes to a perfect pairing: Chris and Mariesa Hughes and their organization, The Mr. Mo Project, teamed up with the musicians Dan Tillery and Dave G to write the heartwarming lyrics and melody of "Never Too Old to Love."

Mr. Mo Project Is Saving Senior Dogs & Helping Cure Depression

Vicky Neville and her tender hearted bull dogs did not always have it easy. After years of heartache and enduring the loss of three bull dogs, recovering from divorce and witnessing the passing of her sister and soulmate, Vicky was admitted into inpatient care for her chronic depression...

The Mr. Mo Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group that has been responsible for saving countless shelter dogs nationwide since 2011. These dog-loving folks originally met the musical duo through SHOW YOUR SOFT SIDE, a public service campaign focused on encouraging compassion towards animals.

Here's Why You Should Adopt a Senior Dog!

From their initial connection, Chris and Mariesa asked Dan, along with his producer/guitarist Dave G., to write "Never Too Old to Love" and asked us to produce this very special music video. (Of course, we said yes!) We hope the sweet pups featured in the video bring some joy into your heart. If they do and you want even more, you can download the original song on Amazon!The Music Video was Produced by HooplaHa – Only Good News.
