Though she looks young, Channel is all set to celebrate her 21st birthday. (In dog years that’s 147 years.) Channel just received a certificate for the oldest dog in the world! Channel lives in Port Jefferson, Idaho, and belongs to 51 year old Denise Shaugnessy. Denise adopted Channel when Denise was just 6 weeks old. According to Denise, the cause for Channel living so long is a lot of pampering, as well as giving Channel the choice between human food and dog food -- and that includes macaroni and cheese!
I think this is so cool. I have never known about a dog that lives over 100 years. The most time I know a dog can live up to is 12 years, which is 84 dog years. I think Denise is the luckiest person in Idaho to have a dog like that. Denise must be taking good care of Channel. Channel even entered the Book of World Records! Neat! I wish I would have a dog someday. . . .
