The World’s Oldest Dog Has Died [Video]
On a bit of sad news Maggie, believed to be the world's oldest dog, died peacefully in her sleep Tuesday.
WGN reports that Maggie, a Kelpie, was thirty years old and was still fairly active on the farm in Australia.
Her owner, Brian McLaren said “She was 30 years old, she was still going along nicely last week, she was walking from the dairy to the office and growling at the cats and all that sort of thing....I’m sad, but I’m pleased she went the way she went.”
Maggie actual age is documented as McLaren lost her paperwork, but said he got Maggie when his son was four years old. Brian's son is now 34.
Either way you look at it this was an old dog. but by watching the video below although she was old and moving slow she looked like she was still enjoying life.
The officially documented oldest dog in the world, according to the Guiness Book of World Records, "was Bluey, an Australian cattle dog that also lived in Victoria. Bluey was put to sleep in November, 1939 at the age of 29."
Hmmm, another long living dog in Australia. Just what are they feeding them?
