World's Oldest Dog
Wow, I just found out about a dog that is 21 years old! That is 147 in human years. She is a dachshund, which is very, very cool, and her name is Chanel. She used to be red, but as you can imagine, being 147 has your hair turning a bit white. The New York Post has her photo's and story. Keep on rolling, Chanel! I hope to live at least as long as you did!
