If I am wrong.. I will call my neighbor tomorrow and admit I'm wrong... but I hope I'm not wrong because I would love to be able to gloat that I was right. Is it correct to say that if a dog is 7 years old then it is 49 years old in human years. OR Is it correct to say if a dog is 7 years old then it is 49 years old in dog years I think the first one is correct... that is always what I was told since I was a little kid. I was always told for every year of a dog's age was equivalent to 7 human years. But my neighbor disagrees and says I have it backwards and we finally agreed to disagree. I would really appreciate if someone could answer this for me and put it to rest.
