Happy Birthday! How fit is she? Is she still physically OK? What kind of dog is she?

Wow 18 years old! thats great, the oldest my dogs live to is about 14yrs which is about 98 in doggy years. What kind of dog is she and whats her name?
wellerchap
Happy doggy birthday, old girl....here's hoping you have a good few more in you yet, too !
mtorregiani
Quite a milestone, that's an extremely old age for a dog. I remember my old dog, it died at the age of 13... and it was quite sick.
How's the health of your pet?
Cliffer
thanks for you all ! my dog is old now,she can't jump and run fast,and if walked a little bit long road,she felt very tired,but she still looks young and beautiful. she's not a pure type,she's a mixed type,white fur,looks like a fox.

i can't upload picture here,or i will show her to you.

Maybe you need to get a new puppy and it will serve two purposes. It will keep the older dog still young, and if it should get to a time that it has to pass on, it will be less of a great hurt, as when dogs die, it can be worse than when family dies. Having another dog, may make it slightly easier to deal with. Since you treasure your old dog, the dog may be able to teach the puppy some good things too, as puppies usually like to copy behaviour like us humans tend to do too when we are small kids, so something of your old dog will always stay alive.

That is really sad. Most dogs need a little friend. Can you get a kitten instead? Smile

Dang! O.o 18 years old in HUMAN YEARS is something I've only heard once before. Congratulations on having a healthy dog at that age! And happy 18th to her!

WOW! Happy birthday!

It was my Dog's Birthday on the 10th, he's five!

WOW thats an old dog....must be very active and healthy to live that old! whats your secret?
Dean_The_Great
That is intense!! 18 years! Wow, there's nothing wrong with that. That's longer than I've ever heard of a dog living. A cat once, but never a dog.
jabce85
i've never seen an 18 year old dog.. that is extremely old for a dog.

Confused
What?
I've never seen a dog die of natural causes younger than 20... It isn't very unusual for one to live to 18...
Maybe I've just been mislead by only knowing large dogs that lived in rural areas, so they got lots of exercise...

Perhaps a small dog that never leaves the house wouldn't live as long...

Perhaps it depends on the breed of dog. For example Dachshunds may tend to gain weight as they get older, and have a natural shorter life span. Maltese dogs tend to be more highly strung as they grow older, probably because they are so intelligent. My experience is around 12 years max. So 18 years are really impressive.

Not to mention the giant breeds have a very short life span. Their size is just too much for their hearts. Breeds like the Great Dane, the Mastiffs, and the Irish Wolfhound among others, tend to have shorter life expectancies. Their life span is more in the 7 to 10 years max. I agree 18 years is very impressive, 12 to 14 is more what I am used to.

Eeeps, that is impressive! Give her a big birthday cuddle from me! I hope my boy gets to be that old. He's only 7 though so guess I've got a while...
roadmouse
Impressive! I've never seen a dog of 18 years old. I hope she'll make 19 and then some more...
Congratulations! Smile

Thanks for the Video Johnson. I really like WangWang. When I first saw her in the movie she looked almost young, but when she started to move around I could see she is much older. Also when you made close-ups of her face. It was a nice video. Smile
