In Memory Of …

This table shows dogs who have featured on the live Veteran’s List but are no longer with us. Whilst it is interesting to look at the current living veterans and appreciate their longevity the bigger picture of all the long living dogs we have known about is much more useful. Without it the knowledge and implications of the fantastic achievements of some of these dogs will be lost. This list can be used to look back for consistent and repeated longevity in lines rather than just current generations. As time goes on obviously this list will get bigger and bigger and if certain kennel names appear on it on a regular basis then this has to mean something in terms of genuine longevity in their lines.

It is perfectly true that longevity is not purely about the breeding, just as in people there are many many variable factors, diet, lifestyle, fitness, non hereditary health issues, environment, luck even, but if some names appear frequently in the list and over several years and different sires ands dams then this has to mean something. Even then there are variables in this, some breeders have many more puppies than others and law of averages would say some will qualify for this list, some may have long living dogs but don’t contribute their details to the list (maybe this in itself says something?) The repeated presence of kennel names who will be selling puppies to all kinds of different lifestyles, thus balancing out many of the variables, has to mean that there is an hereditary factor to longevity. By documenting this it demonstrates that a valid question to ask when considering a puppy is along the lines of “How old are his Grandparents? What sort of ages did the dogs on her pedigree live to?”

I would thank everyone for contributing to the list and just say it is what it is. A list of volunteered Bernese who have lived longer than the average age produced by health surveys on our breed. As such we appreciate their being on the list and having it here to use has got to be better than having nothing. People must bear all the variables and background issues in mind and draw their own conclusions from the list.

Sometimes all the bad news about health issues can get out of proportion so another reason to publish this list is to remind people that we do have plenty of dogs who live much longer than some would have you believe, still maybe not as long as we’d like but nevertheless to an encouraging age. Yes, their passing will always be sad and upsetting at the time but there is an uplifting side to their memory for us all.

Longevity, or rather lack of it, for many different reasons, is our overall biggest health issue and listing those dogs which overcome the problem to any degree and therefore putting the issue in the spotlight has to be a good thing.

It is very much appreciated that viewing this list may be difficult for some people but take comfort from your dog’s listing here being part of a bigger picture to increase awareness of the longevity issue and improve the future for our lovely breed. All the dogs here lived for a relatively long time with their families and were a treasured part of that family. Being on this list is intended to celebrate that and not disrespect your dog’s memory in any way, absolutely the opposite in fact. Owners and breeders should take pride in having dogs on this list, not be upset by it. The rest of us should be inspired by it that it is possible for Bernese to live to such respectable ages. The list is reproduced with a huge amount of respect for the dogs featured and their owners with the aim of contributing to a better future. If anyone wishes their dog’s details to be withdrawn from this list you only have to ask via health@bernese.co.uk where any comments can also be sent.

Finally, Congratulations again to the breeders who have several entries in this list. Although often not actually stated a decent degree of longevity is an obvious basic requirement when looking for a puppy and it is good to see that at least some breeders seem to consistently produce dogs that live to acceptable ages.

The table below lists dogs in order by age at date of death, however by clicking on the arrows beside the column headings it is possible to resort the data and order the list by Kennel Name or any other heading.
