We figured, on her 3rd birthday, it was time to show the dog where steak comes from.
* I used to think that each dog year was the equivalent of 7 human years, but it would seem that school of thought has evolved. A more accurate measurement it turns out is to look at the specific breed and its particular life span. You then have to adjust for the aging process itself since I also learned that dogs age faster in the first few years before it starts to slow.
While all of that is mildly interesting to me, what I still can’t believe is that I know my dog’s actual birthday. That about sums up how things have gentrified during my 43 years.
