About Author

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).

  1. Greetings from Sydney, Australia.

    Chanel was NOT the world’s oldest dog. And New York’s Paco Sosa (20) is six years younger than a “terier mix” named Max, owned by Janelle Derouen of New Iberia, Louisiana, born on August 9, 1983. He celebrated his 26th birthday last month.
    Janelle says Max is in remarkably good shape. He suffers from cataracts, so he wears doggie goggles when he’s out in the sun, and a touch of arthritis has slowed him down, but not by much.

    You can see a video of Max and his owner at http://xmangerm.vox.com/library/video/6a00d4141bbfae685e0110160aba58860b.html

    Max is probably the world’s oldest dog.

    Earlier this week, a German woman claimed her pooch was 25 — with a tattoo of her birthdate in her ear to prove it.

    Verena Wulf from BavariaWulf told her local radio station SWR3, “My Penny is 25,” and came to her family in 1986. “The vet at the time put her age at about one and a half.”
