Chanel Worlds Oldest Dog Dies
Chanel, the Guinness World Record holder for oldest living dog, passed away on August 28. The wirehaired dachsund, who turned 21 years old on May 6th, wore sunglasses for cataracts, but was otherwise in great health for her age.
Adopted in 1988 by Karl and Denice Shaughnessy of Port Jefferson Station, New York, Chanel's long-term health was said to be attributed to treats from dog food company Dogswell.
"We were saddened to learn of Chanel's passing on Friday evening," says Marco Giannini, founder and CEO for Dogswell. "We were thankful to have had some part in making Chanel's life a little more comfortable and enjoyable…She will be missed."
Aww, rest in peace, bb.
