salty is 10, which makes her 1 year older then thunder and the oldest dog in our house.
i had a golden pointer mix who lived to be 15 1/2 so he was the oldest dog i ever had. all 3 of my cats lived until they were 18 and 19 years of age, so that makes them the animals i have had that have lived the longest out of all.
well my oldest dog is 3 now and she is a little chihuahua but I had another little chihuauha and she ended up to be 20 and she had cancer and catercats and really bad arthrites I know she was a mess but she was my baby so I couldn't put her down but she died on my lap at the begining of this year
My oldest is 2, but my stepdad had a mutt that lived to be 23. They actually put him to sleep themselves (pain medication) because the vet wouldn't let them keep the body to bury him. His name was Charlie Brown.
my alaskan malamute shyanne is 12 and dakota the male is 10. My last dog was an english springer who lived to 13 but my uncle who lives on a large farm had 5 springers all living to very old age, the oldest was 18. Oh I cant forget my cat stoney who is now 12
Welcome to Terrific Pets TRIarn and I am sorry to hear about the loss of your Westie. It is so hard to let a pet go after it is in your family for so long.
When my first Yellow Lab passed, she was over 15 and it was worse for me than when my Dad passed. Of course it was almost a year to the date since we lost my Dad, so maybe that is part of the reason Blondie's death was so hard.
I've found it interesting learning about the ages of everyones pets. Nice to know there are many Senior Citizen age pets among us.
the oldest dog i have ever known was my dads dog that we just had put down like 3 years ago...he was 17 and i was 16...so yeah my dad him before me! He had liver problems and had seizures....love ya "Lucky" Ill see you again.....
