I found this web article on the real age of dogs and cats very interesting. I've known since I was a kid that the theory of every year equals 7 years of a dogs life was silly. Because a 7 year old person can't have babies, but a one year old dog can have puppies. The age scale in this article makes good sense and my dog Molly is 3 1/2 years old and is 30 years in human years. I attached the link below!
