In the spirit of the season, the lovable Spirit of Bo has returned to brighten your day and bring warmth to your life. (Besides, our cat Party Marty is busy napping and our dog Jessie is all wrapped up in Christmas shopping, etc.):

It’s often been noted that cat’s have nine lives. (Yeah! Lucky us!) However, what about the dogs? Did they get the short end of the stick in that regard? Well, I did some research and found a list of dog breeds that enjoy relatively long lives…perhaps enough to rival a cat or two. Interested? Well…here goes…

The Pomeranian can live a maximum of 16 years and an average of 14.

The Coton de Tulear can live a maximum of 16 years and an average of 15.

The Toy Manchester Terrier can live a maximum of 16 years and an average of 15.

The Scottish Collie can live a maximum of 16 years and an average of 15.

The Jack-Chi can live a maximum of 18 years and an average of 15.

The Pom-Chi can live a maximum of 18 years and an average of 15.

The Australian Shepard can live a maximum of 18 years and an average of 15.

The Lhasa Apso can live a maximum of 20 years and an average of 15.

The Shih Tzu can live a maximum of 20 years and an average of 15.

The Cockapoo can live a maximum of 18 years and an average of 16.

The Toy Poodle can live a maximum of 20 years and an average of 16.

The Chihuahua can live a maximum of 20 years and an average of 17.

The New Guinea Singing Dog can live a maximum of 20 years and an average of 18.

(And if Jessie gets her way, the maximum Party Marty gets to live is one of those proverbial lives! J)
