How Long Did Your Bichon Frise Live?

I have a 13 year old Bichon Frise. His eyesight is gone and he's losing his teeth, but otherwise seems in good shape. My dad is meana nd maes jokes that he doens't have much time left. But out of curiousity, how much time might he have?
If you had a Bichon that died, how old was it when it died?

Newsflash, Dad!- small dogs live much longer than larger dogs do. icon smile How long did your bichon frise live?

Some Bichons have made it to 16 or more.

    I heard Bichons can live up to 20 years.
    I have a 3 yearold so Im not sure what to expect yet.

    From what i've learned, Bichons live up to 15 years so yours is already really on its senior years.

    My lived to be just one month shy of age 17. However, she was in pretty bad shape during her last year. I couldn’t bear to put her to sleep, though.

    I have two bichon brothers. One will be 14 years this year and his hearing and eyesight has been going little by little over the past 6 months. The other is 13 and still as spunky as can be.

    We had to put my beloved Bichon Frise Max to sleep at 14 years old. He developed cataracts, kidney stones, arthritis in hind legs and back end and allergy problems. I am still heartbroken. Bichons are wonderful!
