I read this article and though it interesting. I hope it is of interest to some of you too.

BBC News - Dog years: How do you calculate a dog's true age?

It's often said that the age of dogs can be better understood by multiplying their age, in human years, by seven. But is that really true?

I have heard and read similar articles. The 7 year stat has been around since I can remember, but I think it is pretty much just a guideline. The interesting thing: little dogs live longer, well, in many cases little people do as well. People of unusual size are inclined to die younger. I am talking about truly oversized and not just weight.

Huh. I was really looking forward to calculating Artie's age, but when I saw that Labs and Golden Retrievers were listed as medium-sized dogs, and Beagles listed as small dogs (right alongside a miniature Dachshund), I gave up. I always consider Artie to be medium-sized (he's 38 pounds and has a Beagle-sized bod). I'll just stick to my "you're going to live forever, buddy" thoughts.

ETA: Oh. Never mind. I see that there are different age weightings for each dog in the list. Artie is 62. He acts 12. Just like all men.

Max is 5 but this says he's 38. I try not to think about it. It makes me really upset to think about being without him. He's just going to have to live forever, that's all there is to it.
