lulu_boozer_1586264c

A Beagle cross named Lulu is the world’s oldest dog after reaching the age of 147 – in dog years. Her owner, Travis Buckly, 60, has credited the dog’s longevity to it’s diet of freshly cooked fillet steak, veal and sausages.She even finishes her meals with cheese and biscuits and maltesers. Lulu, from Coventry, is now believed to be the world’s oldest canine after the previous record-holder died last summer and Britain’s most senior dog Otto, 20, was put down in January.

Mr Buckly said: “If there’s a steak and a sausage in the fridge you can guarantee she’ll be having steak and sausage for tea. That’s her favourite meal.”Lulu always has the finest meats in the house. Sometimes it’s gammon or on the rare occasion it’s been veal. I?m sure that’s why she’s lived this long – a really strong diet.

Uno, Cocker Spaniel Could Be The World's Oldest Dog

001528422

Uno the cocker spaniel has spotted something good to eat. “When he smells the food we’re bringing home, he bounds up and down and runs like he’s crazy,” says his owner Cherie Gigliotti of Sherman Oaks, Calif. “It’s so fast you can’t catch him. Both paws are up in the air. To watch him it’s hysterical.”

This isn’t news to anybody who has a “food-motivated” dog, but Uno isn’t just any other young, spry thing. He’s believed to be 22, which makes him a year older than the oldest living canine on record at the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records (a 21-year-old Dachshund mix named Chanel). And while he lacks birth records validated by the American Kennel Club, Uno’s unofficial title as the world’s oldest dog is turning heads. For a cocker spaniel who would be about 110 to 154 years old in human years, Uno can still remarkably act “like a puppy.”

Uno was adopted by Gigliotti’s boyfriend, optometrist Norman Steinberg, in 1990 from two women in Valencia who couldn’t keep him because they were opening a day care. They claimed he was born on Jan. 1, 1988. Over the years, Uno has enjoyed a steady nutritious diet prepared by Gigliotti, who began caring for him in 2005. She grinds up Kibble and purees food like chicken breasts, broccoli, zucchini, sweet potatoes, carrots and ground turkey so that it’s “easier on his digestion.”
