As far as the living will is concerned, having a close friend, a bit younger, have a life-threatening heart attack or stroke can be very persuasive. Also sort of extreme and not something you can count on, anyway. You can always remind him that if he does not set down his wishes and requirements, some functionary, a stranger, may do it for him.

As far as a will governing the disposition of your property is concerned, depending on where you live, the penalties for dying intestate can be high. Among other things, wills can allow you to optimize things to the extent possible.

Include a contribution to the rescue place or another sanctuary for dogs, and tie care for your dogs to it.
