You’ve got all these 15 year old dogs out there creeping people out from the couch staring at you with those cloudy eyes and missing teeth. The number of 15-ish year old dogs I encounter would suggest that I should be encountering a similar number of 105 year old humans. I can definitively say that I am not.
