    He is my life!
    I've had nightmares regularly, that he will die. He is 3 years old now, but I still think about him as a puppy. And he will only live 8 more years according to the statistics... I can't stand that fact! It feels like I'm going to lose him soon :cry: I want him to live forever! :cry:

    Try not to think of the statistics hun. I have 2 dogs, 1 of them is 11 now & I still think of her as a puppy, she still acts like a puppy too, well actually she behaves more like a baby than a puppy but she is still so full of life.

    I'm sure you'll have more years of fun to come so please don't dwell on statistics.

    My dog has just been to the vets and I know how much I worry about him. I'm sure yours will still have a very long time left with you. Our dreams are often just our deepest fears,not something that is about to happen.

    If you spend your entire life worried sick about the future, you will never be able to fully enjoy the time you have with your dog in the present. Your worries will taint every single moment you have with him. You need to learn to appreciate the time you have with him and make the most of it, and that goes for everything good in life.

    I think you should focus on the time you do have with him and try and enjoy it.
    Make the best of the present :)

    You can never know how long they will live. As long as you do your regular vet visits and give him/her regular exercise he/she should live a healthy life.. My sister just put her dog to sleep and she was twenty one years old.. She lived a long happy life..
