Maggie, a 30-year old Kelpie from Australia🇦🇺 was reportedly the oldest dog in the world from Victoria, Australia. Brian McLaren (Maggie’s guardian) shared with us that she spent her days working on his dairy farm among sheep and cattle, running on average 12.5 miles a day, seven days a week, for two decades!

In our book, The Forever Dog, she is one of the many examples of long-lived dogs that spent ample time outside on a daily basis, got plenty of exercise, had a low-stress lifestyle, and consumed some raw, unprocessed foods. And though genetics certainly plays a role, it is no coincidence that the one consistent variable among all of the oldest dogs in the world was daily rigorous exercise - rain, snow or shine.🌧❄️☀️ And while most of our dogs aren’t working a dairy farm, there are simple things we can do to improve our dog’s health and longevity.

In our interview with Dr. David Sinclair,👨🏼‍🔬 the world’s leading geneticist from Harvard Medical School shared, just keeping our dogs lean and giving them 5-10 minutes of breathlessness every day, heart-thumping exercise, can contribute to slowing down the aging process.🧬

You can read more about these long-lived dogs and our more suggestions for what you can do to help maximize your dog’s health in our new book: ForeverDog.com

Petal w help from Flyboy had 3 pups yesterday (2/15/22). 2 blue fawn boys, one blue fawn girl. The boys are almost identical w minimal markings, and one was latched on eating, so here’s a couple pix of the other boy (solid) w his blazed & collared sister.


What a fun time at the LGRA/NOTRA racing nationals, put on by Sighthounds On The Lam (SOL) in Camden, SC. SOOO well-run! I was disappointed by no competition in IGs, but I brought 3 of my best runners: Ammo, Cassie and Carmen, and they managed to create drama all on their own...mainly between Ammo and Carmen. I went in thinking Carmen was gonna be the sure bet. But Ammo was all piss'n'vinegar; and at 9 yrs. old he won LGRA on Saturday...Carmen managed to win the third race but it was too little too late. I know she can beat this utterly confident, spunky nutball, who I love dearly and admire greatly, but it was plain to me, she was acting unsure and anxious. I guess she forgot she usually (always?) beats him at our local meets. Oh, the fun of trying to figure out what's going on in your dogs' heads! So I held off the needed pep talk till she was ready to hear it...after Ammo beat her in the first NOTRA race on Sunday. I mean, NOTRA is her THING. I said, Carmen, really???? Where is your speed? You should be used to this new venue by now, all you have to do is win the next two races, and you get your name on a plaque! That's very special! So she believed me, and did it, and won NOTRA. Yessss! Let's not forget Cassie, who at 11, still probably needs to lose more weight, and she may well have won a race or two if she had, but although she was the turtle both days, she was not very far behind. So I'm happy with how it went. Ammo was a good egg to share the glory, Carmen notched up her confidence a little, and Cassie thought it was pretty fun too, especially helping Ammo yell at the bunny every time it went by. The ribbon, trophy and trinket haul was obscene; there will be pix coming.


This is Louie, 5 mos. old! He was trained for 20 min. on the new agility item, the tunnel.
