How can she be a senior already?

I can't believe that my baby is 7 ..... she still acts like she has jumping beans in her ..... "they" promised she would act like an "adult" dog when she hit 4 .... they were wrong. However, she is now frosted face, has more difficulty jumping in the car or on the bed, has arthritis in her back, and has developed a number of fatty tumors. SHE IS ONLY 7 ... sigh ... she can't get old. She just can't.

Sounds like your girl is in pretty great shape, the time goes by far too quickly for sure.

Welll they say for Golden's, senior is considered between 6 and 8 years of age. So I'd cling to the 8 based on that she's still active
