The World’s Oldest Dog, Pusuke, Dies In Japan At The Age Of 26 (Pictures)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 8, 2011

Living to the grand ol’ age of 26 years old, Pusuke has, as they say, had a very good innings.

Working out at a whopping 125 years old in dog years, the much-loved fluffy tan Shiba mix passed away peacefully on Monday after falling ill and refusing to eat his food.

His owner, Yumiko Shinohara, told her local paperShimotsuke Shimbun: “I’m so sad… I would like to tell him that I appreciate he lived a long healthy life.”

Bluey’s age? 29 years, 6 months and 12 days. Close, Pusuke, but no cigar.

A stray dog in Malta proved that she had the heart of a champion, when police officers discovered her buried in sand up to her face, her legs and snout bound, and suffering from pellet gun shot wounds to the head. Despite the horrible abuse (she had more than 40 pellet gun bullets removed from her skull), the dog, named “Star” by her rescuers, has managed to pull through. Read the rest of this entry »
