  1. Yeah but I think it’s supposed to average out to ~7 years, no?

    Either way I always thought it was bullshit. 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.
