Mull - aged 15 - fed on V-dog

"The first picture attached shows Mull, our long-haired German Shepherd, who passed away last year on her 15th birthday.

She was vegetarian for her entire life.





Islay - fed on V-dogThe second shows Islay, also a long-haired Shepherd, who was vegetarian for most of her life. She died aged 15 and 6 months.

It is very unusual, we believe, for this breed to live healthily for so long and to maintain such active lifestyles.

We used Happidog Crunchy Nuggets as our food source for them.

They were both keen fell-running dogs and, amongst many other achievements, each ran up Blencathra (which is our nearest large Lakeland fell) over 150 times.

They each walked and scrambled over the high fells regularly until aged 13 (14 for Islay).

They loved snow and I think they very much enjoyed chasing us as we skied down the hills in winter."
