    I had no idea that they replaced Moose halfway through the show's run.

    My parents' first dog — Tasha, God rest her ancient schnauzer soul — lived to about three months shy of her 16th birthday. We all figured that was a pretty good life, though we agreed it could have been longer had she not stolen my Happy Meal hamburgers when I was little and had we fed her ice cream under the table.

    Sounds like she managed to live a good long life anyway. (grin)

    My Jack Russell, Sparky, is nearly 11 now and I know he's got a few years to go.

    You never know. Those Happy Meals and ice cream may have made her so happy it actually extended her life.

    Perhaps. Since Tasha died, Mr. and Mrs. OHB Sr. have added five dogs and two cats to their household. One dog died at 13 (she was a breeder's dog for 4 years), and the others are 11, 11, 7 and 1; the cats are 4 and 2. Sometimes those pets eat better than I do. Maybe there's something to the hamburger-and-ice-dream dog diet.

    Anybody else's dogs eat weird, non-traditional dog food? How has it affected them? Perhaps we could go national with this, trumpet a new canine diet for longer life. It'll be huge ...

    I guess what I meant was your dog sounded like she was happy, and I'm a big believer that people who are happier tend to live longer (or at least better). My sympathies on your loss, though.
