My first GSD lived to be 18. My dad had him before I was born. My friend told me that her aunts chihuahua just died last week at age 27 !

My family got a dog when I was younger and he lived to be 17. He was a mutt, we don't even know what he had in him. Once I left for college, my parents really worshiped him. He would eat at the table with them at every meal and eat whatever they did and drink coffee (from a mug) with them every morning. I don't think he ever went to a vet until he got older and had arthritis.

I never had a dog that lived with me until it died. I think the closest thing to MY dog would be my grandparents old dog, Smurfy. The got him when he was around 6 months old (he was a stray). They had him before I was born and I was 15 when he died (so he was 16). He loved me so much though (my grandma thinks more than her and my grandpa) he would sleep with me when I spent the night share my food with me (especially icecream cones) and act like I was the only person on the face of this earth whenever I was around.

Wow, hearing these stories of long lived dogs being fed commercial-type food and table scraps.. makes me wonder if I should still be feeding mine Canidae, lol.

None of the dogs in my family ever died, because we never got to keep them long enough. long stories. But our oldest to date is a 5y/o GSD we had since he was a puppy.

speaking of oldest lived dogs. I just found Smurf's pictures today in the dresser. There's the first one of him as a pup and then one as an old man (shortly before he passed on).
