World's oldest dog Chanel dies in New York at 21, 147 dog years
Chanel, the world's oldest dog has died from natural causes in suburban Port Jefferson Station in Long Island. A dachshund, Chanel was presented a certificate by the Guinness World Records for being the world's oldest dog at a Manhattan birthday bash in May.
Whats the key to Chanel's longevity? Chanel exercised daily and ate home-cooked chicken along with her dog food. She also once ate an entire bag of Reese's peanut butter cups containing chocolate which is usually considered to be toxic to dogs.
Chanel, as stylish as her legendary namesake, wore tinted goggles for her cataracts in her later years and favored sweaters because she was sensitive to the cold, owners Denice and Karl Shaughnessy said Monday.
