He does appear to get older (in mindset as well as physically - his fur is less plush etc) - (speculative answer) His lifespan could be the same as John's as it was John's wish for a friend that brought him alive in the first place - making them linked together. –  Robotnik Dec 5 '12 at 3:17

At the end of the film, Ted is killed by Donny and then reborn as a result of Lori's "wish upon a star"

enter image description here

According to the original script;

"Lori’s eyes widen a bit in recognition. She stares at the shooting star for a beat, then closes her eyes and makes a wish..."

enter image description here

Obviously he can "die" as a result of violence or accident although the mechanism is somewhat vague given that his "life" is a result of completely unfathomable magic in the first place.
