Folks are studying canine longevity. That simply means, canine life expectancy. Seems there's big interest in 'aging's complexities", as it applies to our canine friends. And, how aging affects disease.
We, of sound mind and body, who love our dogs as we love our lives, already know this. Don't we? We know there is a strong connection between us and our floppy eared friends. That connection is mostly one of devoted love, both ways, but we also recognize the science behind this strong bond. Well, we recognize that there IS a science behind it. Not just that love is important, but that we need to be focused on the medical aspects of our similarities... and learn to understand how our bodies work.
