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?
