I don't think the poll would work for me because I have had multiple dogs that passed at the same ages.
Sabre was 9ish (Wobbler's).
Rebel was one month shy of 8 (bloat).
Sadie was 12 (I never know what to put as cause, it came on so suddenly, necropsy showed a necrotic section of intestine).
Ember was 11 (cholangiohepatitis).
Wonder was 8 1/2 (lymphoma).
Wish was 9 (osteosarcoma).
Rocket was 11 (although he had dcm, he was euthanized because of degenerative myleopathy).
Karma was 12 (IBD).
Interestingly, the average works out to 10 for me in a fairly small sampling.
Rory will be 13 on Thursday!
