Thanks to the wonders of science it's all got a lot more complicated - you don't just times by seven to convert anymore! https://www.newscientist.com/article/2224268-convert-your-dogs-age-into-human-years-using-this-new-formula/

Oh dear. Mine are both over 69 now. No wonder they are struggling with the stairs more than I am.

The graph only goes up to 12 years of age. My old Whippet is 15, had a Stroke in July but has recovered (to a certain extent). We have not been away in the van since her Stroke as it would have been unfair to put any unnecessary stress on her.

Chloe is over 70yrs....allowed to be more sedate now. We take her for a " drag" instead of a walk, on her off days! Love the avatar picture, Rob!

Sox is now 16 years old in real years. She can still jump into the car, climb the stairs and is happy to do a six mile walk. She is, however, a little deaf and not so good at seeing things, unless it's food.

This is Zak our old boy , not sure how old he is , we have had him thirteen years and he was at least two when we got him , he was a stray. We are down to three dogs but Zak who is a mongrel , has outlived all previous dogs. We had five rescues at one point but the two other dogs we have now are a four year old lab and an eighteen months springer. Zak has been a surrogate dad to all dogs we have had and helped socialise them into the family. He is mostly deaf and I cannot trust him not to wee on people . Some days he runs for England , others he just wants to do his stuff then lie by fire. He is my boy , the others are Bruce’s dogs. Zak as he is getting older is definitely going a bit senile. We have been delayed travelling until tomorrow and pals Have offered to look after him in our house. But ... we are taking him as he frets if not with me .
