I so enjoy my dogs and have since my first Min Pin about 25 years ago. I enjoy raising puppies, enjoy the hobby of showing them. I don’t necessarily enjoy watching them get old, go grey in what seems nano time, but alas, it is part of life. Min Pins are overall very long lived. My last 3 Min Pins lived to age 18. I have also been fortunate with some of my kids, who at retirement, being accepted into someone’s home to live their lives out with lots of attention. THAT makes me happy!! Thank you to those very special folks!
