More than 7. I think he had it 10 years running until his passing.

Shelby is heading into month 3. She turned 7 two days ago, although she still acts like she is two. That's a whole nother story though.

I remember when the vet told me. He was rather serious when he said he has diabetes. He always calls her he. I think he may have been somewhat taken aback by my reply. I said ok let's deal with it (daughter type 1, wife type 2). He never mentioned option 2 which was never an option in our minds.
