Dogs, like babies, don’t have to think much about death. Even if their caretakers tried to talk about The End, babies and dogs would probably interpret any gentle-sounding drop of truth as praise for their good behavior. But the blissful ignorance of dogs isn’t keeping researchers from working to extend canine longevity. On the contrary, researchers are now looking for 10,000 dogs to participate in the largest-ever study on improving canine life expectancy.
