    Gumbo is 7 and we got her when she was 7. She is our first bulldog so I have no idea what is normal or not. I have noticed that she is still pretty spry but she only plays in short bursts.

    My basis for calling Samson a senior was my vet referring to him as a senior. Your question made me curious though so I googled it. Multiple sources online say dogs are considered to be a senior in their last 25% of their breed life expectancy. Well when you look up life expectancy for bullys it's quite low unfortunately, most places say only 8-10 years so senior years would start at 6-7.5 years old. BUT if you ask me, most EBN bullys will live closer to that 10-12 year mark because we all take such great lengths to keep our bully babys healthy.

    I think that is quite normal for a bully

    I'm glad to see so many positive responses, I am starting to believe the idea that this is all just a coincidence
