Happy Birthday to Hims


Brisbane turns 15 today !

That makes him, according to several sources on the Internet, anywhere from 73 to 105 years old in comparison to a human. One source stated, "It is a common belief that 1 human year is equal to 7 dog years. That is not very accurate, since dogs reach adulthood within the first couple of years."

This source states that the formula is: 10.5 dog years per human year for the first 2 years, then 4 dog years per human year for each year after, and "The formula used above is from a canine expert and is a bit more accurate. (as accurate as one can judge these things)."

A younger pair (c. 1992)

Another source offered this rather unscientific graph:

This particular "formula" makes Brisbane 90 years old.

Whatever. The only sure thing is that he has been our best pal for about 14.5 of the past 15 Gregorian calendar years on this earth, which will be a lesser place and be all too soon when he is gone from it.
