Every morning, noon, dinner time and night when I’m walking my dogs (Devon – 15 years old and Rocko 10 years old), I pass other 55+ residents (friends) walking their dogs. I know that the people are 55+, but what about the dogs.
If you use the rule that every 1 people year equals 7 dog years, a dog needs to be almost 8 years old to be 55+. I think most of the ones I see are 55+.
