Lexi's 6 y/o, going on 7 in October.
I hope to have her until she's at least 10, but I know that might be pushing it.
Her mother is still alive at 9 y/o and her grandmother passed at 10, so she has good genetics and a pretty decent chance of making it to that age.
I just wished they lived longer, but I knew going in that their life expectancy is a lot shorter than other dogs.
I'll be devastated when she goes. She's so larger than life, and I don't mean just size wise!
Next dog I get will probably be a Standard Poodle. I don't know if I'll be able emotionally to have another Dane so soon once Lexi passes.
