NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - After 18 years of service, U.S. Army Sgt. Colleen Starkey rarely left her home.

These old dogs are special picks at sanctuary

NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. - Eleven dogs greet visitors at the door of the lovely 115-year-old Victorian house.

Most of the dogs have a lot of white around their muzzles, several limp a bit, and some have the rheumy eyes that come with great age.
