I think it's the second one. Haven't you ever heard "in dog years, I'm dead"?

Dogs, and most most mammals for that matter grow very fast in their fist couple years of life. Just think, a baby grows very fast into adolthood. Lets say child hood is 20% of your life. So a Dog is 18 when it is 2 if it lives to be ten. Or 3 if it lives to be 15

I was totally not expecting this many people to respond so quickly on this question...lol. Any other time I would have just dropped it and been like "hey it's no big deal who's right or wrong.... you think what you wanna think and I'll think what I wanna think" But you guys have no idea what kind of neighbor I am talking about. She has to be right about absoultely EVERYTHING. I just wanted to be right for once...lol. And all I care is that I was able to find it in black and white on both of those web sites I posted that supported my statement to her. And I just wanted to share with everyone again how much I love my puppy.. she's fast asleep on my chest right now as I type.

Even though a Dogs human age is trivial, many people feel happyer knowing there companions age. Becouse many people think as there dogs as a part of the family(including me)And many people see their dogs as a little human.

Is it correct to say that if a dog is 7 years old
then it is 49 years old in human years.

OR

Is it correct to say if a dog is 7 years old
then it is 49 years old in dog years

I think the first one is correct... that is always what I was told since I was a little kid. I was always told for every year of a dog's age was equivalent to 7 human years. But my neighbor disagrees and says I have it backwards and we finally agreed to disagree. I would really appreciate if someone could answer this for me and put it to rest.
There's no way a dog can be X years in human years and still be living when they're up in their years. The staple had always been a dogs years are 7xhuman years = their "lifestyle" like humans know it...

So how would you phrase it then?
