World’s oldest dog dies
Chanel, the wiry-haired dachshund who held the Guinness World Record for oldest dog, died Friday, People Pets reports.
Chanel was 21, according to her owners, Karl and Denice Shaughnessy.
Chanel gained notoriety this past spring after an appearance on the Today show where she was presented with an official certificate as the world’s oldest living pooch.
She will be listed in the 2010 edition of Guinness World Records, scheduled for publication this October.
