OLDEST KNOWN HAV on Forum Turned 17
Our oldest HAV turned 17 on Saturday. While slowed down A LOT and she can get a bit cranky, she cannot hear, but still has vision (don't know how much), still loves to eat, still loves to cuddle and she is happy in her life. She still goes for walks with us in her stroller (previously mentioned in other threads) and walks on HER FEET when she wants to. We now have to get her muzzle cut short (like a poodle) because she drools some and the hair can get yucky.
She is small (about 9#) and has maintained her weight.
Gosh, from my description it does not sound so good, but really she is in the best shape of any older dog I have had -- had one little Lhaso Apso live to 17 but she had dimentia and another live to 16.
The picture of her snoozing on the couch was from this morning and the other was from a couple of years ago.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our Jaime and hope all your HAVS have wonderful long lives!
Mom to my girls Jaime, Dori, & Chloe
