Todd is 11, he's 12 in July. He's pretty fit actually, he still goes for hour walks daily, but sleeps a lot. There's nothing physically wrong with him other than he has slowed down now.

Sally is thirteen and she's slowing down. Her back legs are really stiff, but other than that she's had no health issues or anything. *touch wood*

Millie is 10. She hasn't really slowed down in activity much in the past few years, but she's getting sooooooo much gray. Even her eyelashes are white.

Luce and Mushroom are both 9 1/2. Mushroom looks the same as he always has except for a sprinkling of white hairs on his face. Luce is starting to look old, though. She's warty, she's losing muscle mass, she's going gray especially in the face. It really struck me when I picked her up from the kennel on Sunday.

She's not allowed to be old

Kiba will be 8 in July. Technically not that old, but other than a cyst and fatty lump here, and her knee (which is not even an issue and being on supplements now), she's not acting like an old dog. We actually have seemed to have bonded closer the last year or two and she's really coming into her own and becoming a super agility dog. I want her to be like my friend's rescue group, dogs adopted at ~8yo and at 13 still rocking at agility!

Pip is the oldest at 7. Not too worried about him yet.

It's the cats I worry about. The patriarch is 15 (although he doesn't look it) and the youngest is 9, so... we're gonna have a pack of old cats around here pretty soon.

Everyone in this house is old except for Blitz! time passes so fast now I swear.

Tawny is thirteen
Gizmo is thirteen
Byron is twelve and I think the oldest of the three as far as "dog years" go.

I worry about tawny a lot. When my brother left for his army training she quit eating but finally started again and now she is fine. she has had periods of that when he has not come to see her before and I thought we would have to put her down to the point where I have been bawling on the floor with her begging her to eat. He stopped to see her and she ate a whole cup and was fine there on out last time. He comes home to visit this summer so we will see what happens. this dog is a basket case.

Byrons going to break something because he runs around like an idiot and will sprawl himself out and not understand he can't do it anymore. I have been trying to teach the slow command but he has to much energy for such an old boy I just want to wrap him in pillows.

gizmo will go forever!

I was trying to figure out how old my Siamese Diablo was the other day. I had him back when my parents divorced. I think that makes him fifteen or sixteen. The other cats are under four so guess they are all good.

Suzie is probably in the 11 range. But I've been saying that forever. Maybe now I can start dropping the age. Yeah, she's 8. And she had better stay that way for a loooooooooong time.
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
