All you ever wanted was a cute little puppy. It’s your 12th birthday and your parents finally got you one. There is a million-dollar smile on your face. Your Mom and Dad stand in the doorway and watch you play with your new buddy, excited and glowing. You and your new friend look at each other, your eyes shine and slightly shift color. You both make a promise to always stick around. With the passing years, your bond only grows stronger and nothing can bend or break it. Today after 12 years you hold your four-legged furry buddy and give him a big warm hug. He’s a senior now. Triple the size in the picture of your first day together. Your eyes still shine and the love grows.
Looking at old photos of you and your dog brings back a lot of memories and sentiments. 30 people share now and then photos of themselves and their dogs that will leave you in awe. Take a look!

Dogs grow up fast. You’ve probably heard phrases like, “ageing like a dog,” or “in dog years” and wondered why we say things like that? Well, that’s because one year for them is equal to 7 years for us. Dogs have an average life span of 10 to 13 years. For us, they leave behind memories of a lifetime to cherish.
