Aging Gracefully and Longevity
Aging happens even to our beloved Weimaraner………
Aging happens. Slowing down happens. Staying active is important whether you are a human or canine. Regardless a time comes when you cannot do what you once could.
Watching this happen to your beloved Weim is harder in many ways than having it happen to yourself. We always expect to beat the curve with our Weimaraner. If we expect 12 years then we want 16. Who can blame us?
A few Weimlovers are fortunate and have a 16 year Weim resident. More often longevity falls mid-range somewhere between 10 and 12 years of age. When the loss occurs it sends their family and friends reeling. We tend to think their life was cut short. It is truly never long enough. Who could love us more than our beloved Weim???
How long will your Weimaraner live? Truth be told –Not long enough! Barring something unforeseen you should be able to have at least a good decade if not a few additional years.
This is the first in a new OwyheeStar series on loss and grieving. Slowing down an aging are the precursor to the event none of want to embrace.
