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.

Could 26-Year-Old Max Be The World's Oldest Dog ?

26 YEAR OLD  DOG

When Janelle DeRouen of New Iberia, La., heard about Chanel, the 21-year-old pooch who made headlines recently for being the world’s oldest dog, she knew she had to set the record straight. After all, she’s the mother of Max, a terrier mix who celebrated his 26th birthday at home on Aug. 9.

After getting in touch with the Guinness World Records and giving them vital stats about “her baby” Max, who is 182 in dog years, the dog is a major contender for the title. So, at Max’s 26th birthday bash on Sunday, there was definitely much to celebrate. “We had a gift table set up. He had other little doggie friends over,” DeRouen tells PEOPLE Pets. “Me and my husband [got] him his own little sofa bed. He has his own little couch now.”Born in 1983, the “active” geriatric dog hasn’t had many health problems over the years, says DeRouen, who first told her story to the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph. “The only time I had to bring him to the vet for something serious was for a tooth to be extracted. But that’s it,” she says. In recent years, he’s had a few expected aliments. “He is starting to get cataracts, a little arthritis, but otherwise he’s healthy.”DeRouen, who’s a patient services coordinator at a neurologist’s office, says the dog’s longevity is a mystery to her. “I’m still wondering,” she says. “I don’t feed him any type of table food. He started on Puppy Chow as a puppy and has been eating Kibbles ‘n Bits for the last 15 years.”
