Default How old are your "Oldies"?

It's starting to scare me how old my guys are getting...

Mindy's 13, Di 11....

They've aged well (other than Di's blindness but that happened when she was much younger, and it has no affected her much other than to make her nose rival a bloodhounds!)

It just depresses me sometimes to realize that they are seniors and this past winter was the first time it was really noticeable.. Mindy minded the cold a lot! She'd go lay by a heat source in the shop or stay in the office on the couch instead of being out in the main shop with Jeff :-(

Shamoo is 14. She both thrills and terrifies me at this age. She is doing so well but every day i fall more in love with her and hate the idea of losing her.

Arnold is 7, almost 8, which isn't that old but he's slowing down. He's been slowing down since he was 5 though. I'm really not sure how long he'll last mentally (he's gotten a bit weird) or physically (he's regularly sore).

Our oldest is just 5 yo so just hitting "perfect dog" status. I do dread things in about 7-10 years tho as all four dogs will be seniors and even our current youngest will be almost 8yo+.

Solo is 11 1/2 and going strong. He still loves practicing obedience and doing his tricks. He's even getting nicer in his old age. He recently had a physical type dog play for the first time in his whole life. Before he'd play chase games with a select few dogs, but no one can resist a cute female Mal in heat.

Rose will be 14 in October. Up until a few months ago she was doing really well, but she's aged a lot in these past few months. Her hips are a bit stiff now and her sight/hearing is about half of what it should be, but other than that she's doing well.

Chloe just turned five, so she's not old yet. Cynder is six and she's not old yet, either. They're just good dogs now. LOL

Major, St. Poodle, is 15! I do believe he is at least partially deaf and blind, however he still makes his way around the house and yard just fine. He really is in great shape for 15, and considering his family history and that all his 5 siblings have passed away already.

My oldest is Rylie- she's 6 1/2 years old. Chloe just turned 6 in February. I'm dreading the idea of them getting old.

Fromo is 6 1/2 as well. I can't really say he's slowing down as he was never that active, lol. I don't want him to get old

Lilly is 13. She had acupuncture last week and has started a course of herbs. Now according to Lilly she is about 3. LOL. I'm going to miss her SO much!
