Aging in Dogs – Companions Teach Us to Age Better – AARP

“The dog is old.”

“Age snuck up on him. Maybe this will happen to me, too, if I’m lucky. Maybe it already has. But what human has the genes and the luck and the sheer savoir faire to disguise the years as well as this amazing specimen of canine charisma does?”

“His teeth are bright. His muzzle, black; his coat, feathery. He can bounce a soccer ball off his nose. On the street, everyone loves him. “Your dog is so pretty! How old is he?” they often ask. They’re astonished to hear the number. He’s 10. He’s 12. He’s 14. On it goes, year upon year. He’s ageless; he’s immortal.”
