Tip 46 – Life expectancy in dogs – How long will my dog live?

We all want our pet dogs to live as long as possible, but the fact of the matter is that on average, certain dog breeds live longer than others. This might be a consideration when choosing a dog breed and …

On May 9, 2012 we lost our much loved, little GUIDO, at the age of about 17 years, due to serious illness. He will always have a warm place in our hearts.

Guido was born in Nemaiah Valley in the Chilcotin and as a kitten was abandoned in the wilderness, near a Guest Ranch. Minerva found him under one of the barns and rescued him when he was approx. one year old. He shared his new home at the Ranch with two dogs, Curly and Annie.

Guido loved his outings in the garden and he never forgot his mom, even when she returned after long absences.

Before he was taken to hospital last Sunday, already weak and tired, he made a turn and wanted to go to the garden. It took him great effort to make it down and back up the stairs of the sundeck, but for one last time, he visited his garden. He may have known what we didn’t know then, just how ill he was, and that this was his last opportunity to visit the garden.

We thank Guido for all his love and companionship, the purrs and the cuddles, for his sensitivity, understanding and caring how we were feeling and for the many “conversations” we had with him. Guido was quite vocal. He taught us “catish” – he clearly used words food was “Nam”, a short “mea” was asking for milk, and “mom” for Minerva or Irma, his caretakers. He always said his thanks for his meals, giving a short “meaou”, after he ate, before he walked off. At times he agreed with what we said by giving a “hmmmmm”, that was most amazing! At times he was funny, at times he was stubborn, at times he wanted to ponder before deciding, and he taught us “catitude”. The house won’t feel the same without him, but he will be forever in our hearts.

We will always love you, Guido.
Guido’s family: Irma and Reg, Minerva, Cesare, Kathy and Anna.

Guido...you have brought so much love to my life. Thank you so much for all the wonderful moments I got to share with you. I will treasure them in my heart forever. Miss you so much!!! Missed you every day I could not be there. Every night I could not cuddle with you. But I knew that you loved the garden and where you were and were so very well taken care of and so loved there. You are and will be forever in my heart and soul. I love you so very very much. Minerva
