Experts often argue about the relationship between human and dog life expectancy. However, the duration lifespan of a dog is 10-15 years.
Unfortunately, most owners outlive their pets and parting with them is always very painful. And recently, the myth of equating one dog year to seven human years was debunked.
The new method calculates life expectancy for each breed, but there is a pattern that small breeds of dogs live longer than their larger ones.
But surprising exceptions sometimes happen in nature, and many owners become real lucky ones, as their dog lives much longer than the average statistical norm.
Charming Australian kelpie Maggie was considered the oldest dog. Her loving owner said that she lived for 30 years and she died six years ago, as Brian assures calmly and peacefully, having lived a happy life.
At 30 years old, of course, this is an absolute record that allows Maggie to be considered the oldest dog in the world, and the previous record was registered in 1939 by Victoria, a Rochester who lived for 29 years and she was lifted in the Guinness Book of Records.
Unfortunately, Maggie’s owner does not have a document that confirms her record, so it is unlikely that she will get into the record book. But this does not matter at all, because the dog lived a happy life on a farm, and only towards the end of her life did she begin to have certain health problems associated with old age.
