Being a dog owner,I of course take my dog on many walks. My Pug is 11. People always stop to say hi,ask how old he is etc. which is all fine. The part I don’t get is “oh,mine lived to 10,mine lived to 12,etc,etc. Yes,that’s what I want to hear on my walk. ...how my beautiful dog only has a year or two left. Seriously.

... is it normal to have conversation. It's normal to talk about how old the dog lives to be. Enjoy the time with the dog. The only person who's ever visited me on a daily basis and seem to care about how I was doing was a dog. Of course this was because I fed the dog.
Not sure whom

To pity more: confused sad dogs with their uncertain lives or the pathetic creatures who think there's something more to their's with them about.

I can understand why you would find those comments to be irritating, depressing, strange & unhelpful. I can't imagine letting a stranger with a Border Collie know at what age my beloved Border Collie passed away. But the vast majority of people speak without thinking things completely through first. Go easy on people. Be glad you live in a community where people want to engage with you and are friendly. Not everyone has that.
The worst part of being a dog owner

You’re right….. thank you for the insight. Not sure if I’m guilty of doing that, hope I haven’t but I’ll know for the future.
May you enjoy every little thing about your cute little puppy!! : )

This is why I got off my psyche meds. You say stupid insensitive things without realizing it.
I realized after 10 years, you gotta be medicated/sedated to be around medicated/sedated people. Pills are straight up poison. Ear plugs are way healthier. And please… taper off meds. Let your dr know. Cold turkey is NOT recommended.
