Question for the multiple and long time Vizsla owners.

This inquiry is to get a better sense on longevity of Vizslas. I could only assume that from the body size, they should be the general pain in the "you know what" till they are 14 to 16 years old. Am I overreaching my estimate and hopes?

Boone. 8 years old. Lost to Lyme disease. This was in the early days of Lyme disease. So much more is now known.

Silkcut. 9 Years old. Lost to an auto immune blood disorder. His white blood cells attacked the red blood cells.

Rush. 14 years old.

Gunnr. 11 years old. Some type of a cancer. Everything went too fast to ever really find out.
Tika. 12 years old. A large tumor was putting pressure on her heart and lungs. There were other tumors along her spine.

Between cancer, and some of the other diseases cutting life short. I think we are lucky, if they share our lives for 11-13 years.
I do see ones living a lot longer, but over all more are lost before 14.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

I have a totally distorted perspective: both of our previous two lived to be 16 and were just worn out without having a terminal disease.

Amber was 13 and a half, she was in great shape and absolutely loved life but then developed suspected liver cancer.
I know of a V that lived to 17.

My last Vizsla was almost 10 years old when she passed away suddenly of an undetected heart condition (suddenly, as in 3 hours between when she started vomiting by the time we got her to the vet, had an ultrasound done and she passed away on the floor of the exam room. Heartbreaking.)
