It looks like a typical retirement party: friends and colleagues gather to toast their departing peer, while enjoying snacks and hearing speeches. But Stryker, the retiree and guest of honor, isn’t a Baby Boomer; he is turning nine years old this spring and he’s a Labrador dog.
As reported by The Seattle Times, Stryker retired last week after seven years working for airplane manufacturer Boeing, where he sniffed out suspected bombs, luggage, and abandoned bags.
Studies have shown that adequate sleep is associated with a long list of benefits like better heart health and brainpower. And now there’s yet another reason to get your zzz’s.

They then polled baby boomers in their early 50s to see if they are embracing the same lifestyle habits that might help them reach their 100th birthday.
