She is 10 1/2, but all of a sudden...my cocker baby is turning into an old lady. It is breaking my heart, because I see what is happening. She is losing control of her bladder on things. She won't let anyone groom her (she has always been feisty). Her hair is losing its luster. Eyes are not so good. I guess since I've been here before with other dogs, I dread what is coming. Maybe a year or 2 , hopefully 3...down the road...but so sad to see her getting older. My other cockers all passed around 12. I hope she breaks the record.
