London, August 10 (ANI): Max, the world's oldest dog, living in Louisiana, US, recently celebrated his 26th birthday with a special party.
The terrier-cross, who has a veterinary birth certificate to confirm his age, was said to be awaiting the official green signal from Guinness World Records.
Owner Janelle Derouen, who lives with her husband Billy in New Iberia, revealed the pooch boasted of fine health except mild arthritis and some cataracts.
"I never spoiled Max. I've never fed him anything but Kiddles and Bits [brand of dog food] and a few treats like those beefy doggy bones. We don't give him any food from our table," the Telegraph quoted Janelle as saying.
She added: "He's a very, very laid back dog. He likes to lie down, relax, nap, sleep a lot and keep life simple. He'll play with the kids for a bit but if they bother him too long he'll wander off. He doesn't have any fancy toys, just a bit of rope and a regular squeaky ball." (ANI)
