    wow that is oooollllldddd. that dog was born a month after me, I can'T imagine a dog being my same age. I am picturing a really fat dog that has to waddle because he can'T walk so good anymore. But this dog sounds healthy (well they didn'T say anything unhealthy) I wish they had pics! This is one dog for the raw diet! eating kangaroo and emu!!

    Emu, Kangaroo or any other animal that was mentioned does not have any cholesterol in them, so I dare say this is the reason why he has lived for so long.

    I also bet he did not have yearly vaccinations or heartworm medication, etc.

    Take a look at this info. about dogs "living longer" because of all our "improved" nutrition and healthcare:


    So you see, we who are young (which includes everyone on this list) do not remember the days when dogs lived longer. We were raised to think that dogs live about 10 years and are "getting old" at 7 years. Our pets are dying younger and suffering in their quality of life and yet we think it's "normal".

    Around here we generally tend to think dogs live to 15-18 quite easily before we start refering to them as 'old'. The man who lives upstairs from me has a mongrel who'll be 22 in September. He's really struggling now, but only in an 'old man' way. His heart and everything else is in good shape, he just can't move like he used to. I do feel so sorry for him when I hear him trying to do the stairs tho, and some days he'll sit there for half an hour before taking the plunge... bless him.

    Wow that is intresting. And a great post Jamiya. I sure dont remember those days but have heard about them. My poor Jassie is looking old at 6. We still feed kibble but its high grade. I have seriously been thinking about switching to raw. But right now its mostly a space factor and until I can afford another freezer we have to stay on kibble. Maybe I will start checking out yard sales and flea markets!

    My sister mentioned her 4-year-old Golden is showing some gray already. And she is a breeder's dog - pet quality from good show lines. She eats Diamond brand from Costco.

    I remember when i was young my brother had a german shepard named little John (i dont know why cuz he was huge) my mom and i would go to the grocery store and she would always stop by the butcher and he would give us huge raw bones for him and he loved them.

    ok now i'm showing my age :shock:

    "Little John" of Robin Hood fame is also very large. :)

    Rene said, "my brother had a german shepard named little John (i dont know why cuz he was huge)" so I pointed out that it was probably a reference to the Little John in the Robin Hood story, who is also huge.
