World's Oldest Dog Turns 21 With Birthday Bash From Dogswell

Our sincerest birthday and congratulatory wishes go out to the record holding dachshund herself, Chanel, the Oldest Living Dog who turned a very impressive 21 years old on May 6th, 2009.

To celebrate this milestone, a birthday party was held in her honor at the New York Dog Spa & Hotel. The party was sponsored by Dogswell®, a privately owned pet food company which produces the treats in which her owners, Karl & Denise Shaugnessey of Port Jefferson, New York attribute the dog’s long life to. Guinness World Records representatives Jamie Panas & Kate White attended the birthday party and presented Chanel and her owners with an updated certificate.

Chanel is 147 years old in dog years and will soon be 21 years old in human years. Just like your grandma, her hair is completely

white, she gets cold easily and needs glasses (or in this case, “doggles” for her cataracts).

On May 6, 2009, DOGSWELL®, the fastest growing private pet food company in America, will throw Chanel a birthday bash at the New York Dog Hotel & Spa complete with an oversized birthday cake, many canine attendees and an official presentation by Guinness World Records®. Chanel, a dachshund and resident of Port Jefferson Station, NY, is a longtime fan of DOGSWELL’s® HAPPY HIPS® Lamb & Rice treats. Her owners, Denice and Karl Shaugnessey, attribute her long life and agile hips to the tasty treat.
