This widget is backwards... If my age is 28, then I would be 4 in dog years, not 196. If my dog is 4 years old, she would be 28 in human years.

The formula for this widget should be dividing the human age by 7, not multiplying it.

@timusca: Humans live 7 times longer than dogs. So if a dog reached 28 it's as if a human lived to 196. What you mean is your dog is *actually* 4 years, but from the dog's point of view that's like living to 28.

Either way the argument is rubbish because we all orbit the sun at the same speed. Try expressing it as a %. At 28 years old a human is say 30% through an average life but a dog would be 210% through.

To Whom It May Concern;
After an update my Dog Year widget keeps saying copy. I have trashed it and re-downloaded it and the same thing. I tried to update but I can't. Says something about Mavericks. I am running Safari 5.1.10. How can I get a widget that doesn't say copy?
