Just wondering how old your oldest dog is. This question is not directed at anyone in particular. It is for anyone that cares to answer.
I got to thinking about a neighbor of mine, when I was a child, had an ancient spaniel. The dog was well into her late teens before they lost her.
My Rat Terrier was 12 when he passed on and my first yellow Lab was over 15.
Our other yellow Lab is going to be 12 in the Spring and she is going strong. She lives with my brother and as she's gotten older, she gets lonely when he goes to work, so he leaves the light and the television on to keep her company.
Please let me know how old your oldest canine is. Hope you find this an interesting topic.
Well my oldest dog is now 11-12 we are not sure of her b-day. she is a rottie and is on her last line. has atritis,skin problems,and a eye infection. i still love her none the less she as meds for every thing. are oldest cat has passed away due ta a car... she was around 13 or 14 when my mom got her she was a stray.

bentley is my oldest and hes 1 year old- thank goodness i hope to have many many wonderful years ahead of us- i cuoldnt even bare the thought of losing him. even in 20 years but i know it happens but i think about it now and it really makes me sad- i know kinda silly to be thinking about losing him when hes only 1 year old but ive read so many post on here about ppl losing their pets and it breaks my heart.
our family dog growing up was a huge sheep dog and shaggy ( his name) was 17 years old i moved out and had my kids and every day i went over to see my mom shaggy was getting worse and it was so hard for my parents to put him down. my parents coudnt do it they had a family friend take him to be pts. even tho i wasnt at home for many years i still cried- he was the best dog ever- and i still think about him once in awhile--
