Fact of the Day: Elderly Canine

The oldest dog to ever live (with veterinarian records proving it) was a beagle/dachshund/terrier mix named Max.  He was born in 1983, and he passed away in May of 2013 which was a few months short of his 30th birthday.

  10. I had a dog who was older than 25 when he died, he was a respected member of the neighbourhood for many years and people even talked to him when they would meet him in the street during his walks :)
