Your pets lived a long life. My dog is 12. Animals come and go. Over the years I have learned this well. Life changes, and that which is within it..changes as well.
Glad to hear you are enjoying your new kitten. Sweet!
Got one lab and one mongrel to 15, but it's rare....Had friends, years ago that had St. Bernards....they told me they only live like, 7-9 years and ...lol...slobber on everything.....

My sister's in-law had a sheep dog for 20 years. Think that would do me in. My longest living dog is the one I have now. Is a give-me dog from my daughter. Not one I would go out and get. Odd that.

I knew a St. Bernard when I was young. His name was Moochy. Everywhere you looked was covered in slobber. Gross!

I put up a new pic of the puppy Sawyer on my profile. Is amazing how much a puppy changes in two months. He is a wild dog.

If you look at some of the pics...I also have a pic of Bowie. The give-me dog. He is a trip! Will say that.

12-13 years is likely about average for a 50 pound dog who is pure bred with mixed breeds and less heavy dogs generally living somewhat longer and larger dogs tending to die younger.

Hope they charge whomever owned the car and did'nt tell anybody about the puppy....
how could someone let their car be impounded for a month without trying to get it out? not to forget about the pup but has anyone checked on the owner? impound lots will let you get your personal item from a car if you don't have the money to get the car.

Similar concerns have been raised by other posters as well. Of course the owner should be punished if he deliberately deserted the puppy.

Supposedly 15-20 years and sometimes into their 30s. It is important that they do get some exercise in order to maximize their life expectancy. It appears that they live somewhat longer than house cats.
