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.

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 :)

And no wonder, look at his face. That dog had attitude.

Christine said...

Adam said...

not really the same dog. Didn't have a picture of him, so I found one that looked probably close to he did in his youth.

30 years? In dog years, that's 210! Almost as long as Rupert Murdoch.

Good God, that's amazing! I'd tell MY dog, but he's too busy licking himself.

I wish they all could live that long. My Golden is 12 and when his time comes I'll be a total mess, I'm sure.
