Happy Anniversary to Us!

On January 6th, Dear Hubby and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary. That's 81 in dog years. The old 7 dog years = 1 human year is a myth.

Don't believe me? Here it is from a nifty little site called OnlineConversion.com

It says: "It is a common belief that 1 human year is equal to 7 dog years. That is not very accurate, since dogs reach adulthood within the first couple of years. The formula used above is from a canine expert and is a bit more accurate. (as accurate as one can judge these things)

The formula is: 10.5 dog years per human year for the first 2 years, then 4 dog years per human year for each year after."


Isn't that special?

Thank you, lala,, and welcome mrs big w. The strange thing is that I don't feel old enough to be married that long, but sadly, I am.

I'm going to have to figure out how old my puppy REALLY is. I have always heard the 7 years thing, but this one is new.

Congrats on the anniversary!!

So, nicole, did you use the online calculator to find out how many human years your puppy would be?

Thanks for the anniversary wishes, flip flop mamma.
