We have all owned and adored dogs and many a time mulled helplessly about How to make dogs live longer than 12-16 years. And then there’s Maggie an Australian Kelpie who lived for 30 long years, Her story is an inspiration to all and we couldn’t help ourselves but share this wonderful and surprising information with our readers. Of course it’s great to see a dog live this long and live a very comfortable life.
Maggie lived with her owner (a dairy farmer) Brian McLaren in his huge dairy farm. The senior pup as told by her owner was quite lively even in her last days. The pup passed away peacefully last year (2016) in April. Unfortunately Mr. McLaren lost the documents/certification stating Maggie’s birth date long time ago. The absence of paperwork prevented Maggie from officially holding the title of World’s oldest dog.
The current Guiness world record holder for said title is Bluey, an Australian cattle dog that lived from 7th June 1910 to 14th November 1939 in Victoria, Australia and died at the age of 29 years and 5 months. Two things were found to be common in Maggie and Bluey; they both lived in Victoria and in a farm.
Maggie slowed down two days before the day she crossed the rainbow bridge and seeing this Mr. Brian had some inkling she may not be with him for too long. Obviously it’s really hard to come to terms with a family member’s passing, but Mr. Brian’s consolation was that his Maggie lived a great long life and went peacefully. Maggie fell asleep in her basket and never woke up again.
