The Unoffical World’s Oldest Dog Has Died
Maggie has joined all the other dogs at the Rainbow Bridge. The Kelpie from Australia, believed to be the world’s oldest, has died at the age of 30. According to the American Kennel Club, that would make the pup about 164 human years.
Her owner, Brian McLaren, says Maggie was blind, but healthy up until two days ago. “The best thing about it is the last couple of weeks I was petrified I was going to have to put her down, and that was going to break my heart,” McLaren says. “I’m so pleased she went the way she went.”
McLaren doesn’t have any official paperwork for Maggie, but says his family got the dog when his son, who is now 34, was four-years-old. The Guinness record for World’s Oldest Dog belongs to Bluey, an Australian cattle-dog who died at the age of 29 years and 5 months old in 1939.
