That is fantastic news!!15 years is the most common lifespan I've come across.
Honey isnt VERY healthy.I've always read 16-18 years presuming they are very healthy. I could have sworn my breeder/friend said she knew of a woman who had a Chi live for 22 years....
I will mention a joint supplement next week when Honey has her checkup. Maybe the vet hasn't said anything to me because of everything else Honey is going through at the moment?
She is normally a very good vet. Her knee problem was only picked up at our last check up 5 days ago.
I take her to the dog beach, but she dosent really like the water. Last summer my cousin had a pool and I used to make her swim in there with me!yeah i would ask the vet and ill try and remember what my vet recommended because its not just for big dogs. its hard for a dog to loose weight when they got bad knees. does she go swimming?
That is really good that you know Dahlia willIve already talked to my 25 yr old son
that if we are both gone would he please
take Dahlia for us.He said yes of course.
I read somewhere that a chi lived to be 20.
Yes the smaller the breed the longer they live.
Big dog breeds usually live 10 yrs.
