Pet age calculator by breed

My DD was asking how old our Lab was in human years, and I know it isn't exactly 7 dog years per human year, so I looked it up and found this. It gives age by breed, which is cool! Our 12 year old Lab is 89 in dog years! and somehow the 16 year old cat is only 84!

I'm sort of sad realizing how old they really are, the cat seems to not have aged at all, she still goes out and kills things, most recently an adult rabbit as big as she is. but our dog has dementia and arthritis, and a gray head.

How old is your dog?

It couldn't even calculate our 14 year old lab's age! She is still hanging in there as well as our 19 year old cat. It is hard to see them get old though.

My westie is 28 (or 3 in chronological years), dd's corgi is 44 (she's 7 in chronological years), and ds's whippet is 25 (he's chronologically 2).

When they start doing the zoomies around the house they all seem like puppies to me!

H&h, I hope that is me in a few years! I had a cat live to 22, and she was exactly like my Rocko- even had a boy name, Bruno! She also was indoor outdoor, a rather frightening homicidal killer, and a small female who started out life as a garbage bin cat. I think Rocko has a while left yet, age calculator be damned.

The dog, I just don't know. She has more good days than bad, for sure. But I know it's coming, and seeing "89" drives it home even more.

It's especially hard the pets are getting old right as the kids are growing up, I fear they will all go together and I'll be in the nuthatch for sure.

My Lhasa is 64. He has been really showing his age since his respiratory infection about a month ago. His actual age is 12. He still has some puppy in him though. Especially when he gets to go ride and we have take out delivered, lol.

Huh, we thought McFly was 7 in human years, but he's actually 15. Interesting!

My cockers are 52. I wonder why is does Cockers by color?
I saw some breeds it also did their coat type, but only cockers did color. Weird.

My beagle is 2 1/2 years old. It put 2 at 24 years and 3 at 28 years, so I think my dog is 26.

I was curious to see how old my Airedale was when he passed. He was almost 16. The calculator couldn't give me an age.

...And now it's time for a breakdown

My dog is celebrating his 16th (human years) birthday today. He is a German shorthair pointer. The calculation didn't work for him. His littermate brother is still alive and kicking at my brother's house as well.

my rhodesian ridgeback is almost 61. and he's going to the vet today because of his back legs. makes a little more sense when I think of him as 61 rather than almost 8.

Ozzi the Lhasa Apso is 44. The bit that hit me was 'considered a senior'... He's 7, and a small breed, I thought he had a year or two before senior status kicked in.

Apparently if he lives to be 20, he'll be 96!

Is there another word for synonym?

It said Mozzie is 7 (he's only 6 months old) and
Comet is 30 (He's 3) The vet told us Comet was one of the most fit dog he has ever seen. He walks 4 miles every day. He only weighs 22 lbs and he is a medium sized dog. (Cocker mix) Mozzie on the other hand almost weighs 50 lbs and he is only 6 months old. I really think he is a horse.
