Leap doing her last agility run this past May...13 yrs 4 months.
“Leap is a border collie from herding lines, just months away from 14 years old and has been raw fed for the last 12 years. She was switched just before she turned two. She was diagnosed with less then 10% of the left hip and less then 20% of the right in the socket at 14 months old. Leap competed in herding till she was 4 and ran what was most likely her last competitive agility run at 13 yrs old in May 2010. She is not on any prescription drugs.
Unfortunately she had several puppy shots before I bought her (starting at 3 weeks old!) and I vaccinated till I learned better about two years later. Her first fatty tumor appeared around 3 yrs old.
Mitral valve issues appear in her line at about 8 yrs old. She was diagnosed at 9 but has remained off all meds even though she is now a grade 5.
I know eating a natural diet, using chiropractic, acupuncture and avoiding drugs and vaccines all these years has allowed her to enjoy her life as she has in spite of her health issues. I know our time together is winding down but she has not lost one bit of her drive and zest for life!”

Rosie (Skylark’s Vermilion Rosea)
Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
10 years old (born October 18, 2000)
Owned by Keryl
Name: Pash (Szolnoki Pasztor) Age: 13 years, 10 months (DOB 30.11.96)
Breed: Hungarian Vizsla Owner: Chrissie
Pash has been raw-fed for 11 years and had no vaccinations for the past 10 years. He has significant DJD, due to some conformational weaknesses and our mismanagement of him as a puppy (over exercised, overfed on processed food, vaccines, wormers), but he is nevertheless a great NR success as he has never required pain medication, remains mobile and alert with great stamina, has sweet breath, clean teeth, aromatic fur, no fatty lumps on his lean body and is generally a super easy keeper with a great zest for life! This is a beautiful example of how natural rearing can bring prolonged quality of life to a "damaged" body. He is a teacher dog, keeps 3 young Vizslas in check and inspires many!.

In his "day", he day he was an accomplished running dog. Although it has been many years since Sam raced competitively, he still enjoys a run through the woods although prefers to "smell the roses" a little more now.

Smotare Ibizan Hounds Ch. Rosenhill's Rugosa-Caporosso - "Rosso"
Rosso has been Naturally Reared since he came to Smotare Ibizans when he was about 2 yrs. old.
The pictures were taken 9-10-2010 when he was 13 yrs. 7 months old.
Cheyenne has been on a raw diet since she was 1 year old and will be 14 years old in Feb 2011.
The average life expectancy of Doberman's is only 8-10 years. I know she has done so well health-wise because of her raw diet. She has no arthritis, and some days still wants to play with our 2 Great Danes which are only 2 years of age and of course very playful.
Vicky’s 14 years young Siberian Husky Boy "Wolfman".
Although he has only been with Vicky for six years (and his years before that were horrible), he has turned into a huge sweetheart. He has gone from not really liking people to the one who gives the most kisses out of all. Since the very first day Wolfman has been Vicky’s snuggle bum. No vaccs and raw fed, he came to Vicky with heart disease and leukemia but is doing very well working with a great homeopath.
“He has the energy of a five year old and eats like one too! I am so lucky to have found him and am thankful every day to have him with me ~ Vicky”
Ellie, who turns 13 November 12, 2010! Not a gray hair on her chin, and she still fetches her Bumpers and goes for long walks. She won our National Specialty in 2007, nearly 10 years old, in an entry of over 120 Tollers!
Officially she's: ATCH BISS Ch. Berdia's Electra Ice Storm CD WCI JH AGI US-WC RE-CARO

All that good food and exercise keeps 'em young. Raw fed since 99 (Phoenix since he was 15 mos. when I rescued him).
Patty and the Shelties
Renee’s Wiley Wizard born May 15 1996. He is 15 will turn 16 in May. He was cold turkeyed to raw at 6 months old when I got him. As you all can see his coat is still beautiful--my vet can't believe how nice his teeth are. Wizz still walks with me at least 4 x week for like 2 hours. We do just meander but he always breaks into a trot. The one in the snow was our last storm in beginning of Feb this yr (2012). The one of him swimming was back in April of last yr.
Not bad for a old man. He sure has hiked the miles with me.

Suni - Calais' Carolina Suni ASCA CD ~ DOB Nov. 15, 1999 (13) (Red Merle)
Eve, a 48 pound Chow/Siberian Husky cross, is my matriarch dog. She was my first dog ever and my 20th birthday present to myself. She was 5 months old. She's been with me through hell and back more than once and pretty much taught me everything I know about dogs. I switched to natural rearing, including a 100% prey model raw diet, when she was 1 year old. She will be 13 May 1st, 2012, and while she has slowed down a bit and is quite gray around the muzzle, she is still going strong, hiking, protecting her domain from intruders both 2 and 4 legged, and ruling the pack with an iron paw.

Darby is totally Naturally Reared and brought in two NR Scottish Terrier Litters. She is one of the most easy going Scotties I have ever known. Darby loves people was a great dam to her litters and is exceptionally healthy. I am very confident she will be around for many more years to come.
