World's Oldest Dog, Max, is 26

People have long had love affairs with their dogs.  Shown here is a puppy at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York.
Until last week, the world record for 'World's Oldest Dog' was held by Chanel, a wire-haired dachshund.  Unfortunately Chanel died last week at the old age of 21.  Chanel's passing made national headlines.

Turns out that press about Chanel helped surface another of the world's oldest dogs. Janelle Derouen owns a 26 year old brown terrier named Max and has the paperwork to prove his age.  Janelle describes Max; “He’s a very, very laid back dog. He likes to lie down, relax, nap, sleep a lot and keep life simple. He’ll play with the kids for a bit but if they bother him too long he’ll wander off. He doesn’t have any fancy toys, just a bit of rope and a regular squeaky ball.”

Guinness World Records has yet to officially recognize Max.  Max's birthday is August 9th.
