Grayhound's longevity

I have a grayhound that is 14 and a half, and I know that this is quite old for a grayhound. Does anyone know of one that has lived longer? I'd love to hear that someone has a 20 year old grayhound. Karen

From what I read, the average lifespan is 12 - 14 years
What is the condition of your dog right now?
Heard there is a 20 year old hound still living in NJ from this site.

That would be good news!
She is in good condition now -- eats (my husband cooks for her)well and even runs some. Just has times she has trouble getting up,and walks like a drunken sailor.

Glad to hear she is doing well
Feed her GOOD dog food and GOOD treats, stay away from table food and I hope she lives a lot longer.
What does your Vet say about her condition?

She gets dog food, AND cat food, AND chicken, liver, steak etc. cooked especially for her. When her sister died she had just stopped eating. We took her to the vet who put in an IV (which bothered her) and gave us medicine, which she hated. She was trembling and cringing when we tried to give it to her-- in anything. We finally had her put down because she was so ill and miserable. With Sasha we are basically going to provide hospice. We will give her anything we can get her to eat, and lots of love. Her quality of life is still good.
