It's really great seeing the dogs that are living so long. With all the bad news that we hear of dogs dieing too young of various diseases, it's nice to hear some good news. For those of you with the Golden Oldies, if you have the information, would you mind posting the lines behind your dog? Even if it's just the name of the dam and sire.
I think it would be very interesting (at least to me) to see what lines are behind these long lived dogs. I think all the good breeders try to watch and keep track of that kind of thing. After all, it doesn't do much good to breed the prettiest dog in the world and win all kinds of titles, if the dog develops MVD or SM and dies at 6 years old.
So any information you can give would be appreciated. Thanks!
