      @IIlham a vital question to some of us that love dogs.

      Typically the lifespan of a dog is between 10-13years. But this is basically an average and this is dependent on the type or breed of dog. Do you have a dog? I had a dog that lived up to 8years. But know some people with dogs as old as 14years.

      Have you heard that actually one year in dog years is equivalent to about 7 human years. So if a dog lives up to 10years, they would be about 70years old (in human years)…..
