Welcoming you, and Jersey to the forum. How lovely you have been together for 15 years.
My oldest Vizsla is 10 1/2.
I do have Jasper (6 years old) at my home. His mother is 14, and from what I hear she is still quite the character. Still known for her counter surfing ways, that she passes on to her offspring.

Wow 16 years! that's amazing!

My pup is only coming up on 8-months and it would be amazing to have him as long as you've had Jersey.. Any tips on how you got Jersey to be so long-lived? what do you feed her/him? what's her/his exercise regiment looked like?

That’s such a an amazing age!
My vizsla is just a pup (9 months) but I’m still sharing the care for my family cocker spaniel together with my mom.

She turned 16 in February and although she seemed a bit weak in the summer of 2019, she recovered very well and is now enjoying quiet days at home.

She has always been very active; joining my mom for running almost daily. My mom lives in a big city and she doesn’t dare to let her off leash nowadays but she still has regular walks. She is such a sweetheart!

hi there, My vizsla is not 16 til aug 1st - she is still very active, wants to go walk, wags her tail, wants to swim in our pool if we show her the way in - gone are the days of her hurling herself from the side! she also loves to swim in the lake at the bottom of our garden. She is probably 80 per cent deaf now, so I cannot let her off the lead - incase her nose takes over!

not 16 yet - but I am hoping. Her diet - complete dog food and scraps! have always done it - she loves it. I used to live in Germany and the vet used to say what a healthy looking dog - amazing!! blah blah blah - then he would ask about her food and i would admit to scraps and he would say...no no no! and then I would retort but you said and congratulated me on her health - so sorry I am going to carry on. I give her scraps from our meal - but I cook most things from scratch so i know what she is having. I have always boiled any left over bones from chicken or steaks etc - in water, for the bone marrow...and she drinks that like there is no tomorrow - I swear by it!! I call it her chicken soup or soup! I also give her cheese as snacks - as she is not greedy and never over eats (wish I was like that lol) I also in her later yrs give her bolied eggs - she loves these too - and I give her peanut butter and also coconut oil placed lavishly on milk bones and also those menthol dental stick chews. I feed her in the am with dried food and 1 pill for her joints sprinkled on, and then scraps and treats at teatime finished off with her milk bone and dental stick... works for us..,
