ok no offence of anything but there's no such thing as dog years a dog will die quicker than us because it breathes to a lot when it's hot(panting)and through that dieing quicker Also a year is the time it takes a planet to orbit the sun so a dogs year is the same as a human year...unless dogs live on another planet
Ummm...the panting does not make them "die quicker". And there is no set ratio for dog age. It depends on several factors such as breed and size. Most large breeds such as Great Danes and Mastiffs only live 7-8 years because their size puts extra strain on their heart and joints. Smaller breeds such as poodles can live 20 years or more because there is less strain on their organs. You also need to take into account "natural" deaths vs. "assisted" deaths. A mastiff may live an extra 6 months in horrible pain from joint issues or the owner could put them down to spare them that pain. Please do some research before spouting off.
Your birthday is more important, but I can't brand this a FYL or YDI, so I'll just brand it YLR, your life rocks. It would be cool to share a birthday with a family beloved pet. Twice the fun and enjoyment, I'd appreciate it. Plus it would hit two birds with one stone (if your parents are the type to celebrate holidays with your pets, which I do myself). I honestly don't see how this passed moderation, unless you dislike your mothers pet.
Just take the dog for a long drive and let him out of the car. He'll find his way back home in a week or so, but it wouldgive you a chance to have your own party
If the dog is female, make your mother share Mother's Day with it--claim it's "Bitches Day". Hey, you'll be moving out soon, anyway.
agreed this is funny, animal lovers shouldn't be able to make events for the pet that involve participation of other people who may not love the animals THAT much, dont get me wrong i think pets are awesome but the op's mom can talk to(like the dog has sentient intelligence)/give party for their dog alone
