A dog named Pebbles at the age of 22 years and 59 days was recognized as the oldest living dog in the world.
If you translate this age into human years, then Pebbles’ record becomes even more impressive, since she is already a whopping 154 years old.
All her life this four-legged granny lives with her owners Bobby and Julie Gregory in South Carolina.
The dog is in good health and, like all pets, still loves to play and expose her tummy for strokes.
According to Julie Gregory, initially the family wanted to get a big dog, but when her husband saw Pebbles, he was captivated by her pretty appearance and modest character, so the dog went to a new house that same day.
“They were in love at first sight” Julie said.
Pebbles is comfortable with her newfound fame and therefore continues to do her canine business despite the constant calls of congratulations that ring out at her two-legged parents’ home.
“She loves to listen to country music. Two of her favorite country artists are Conway Twitty and Dwight Yoakam.” Julie told the Guinness Book of Records.
The Gregory family is very proud of their tailed long-liver and hope that she will be around for many more years.
“Pebbles has been with us through everything: ups and downs, good times and bad, and she has always been a ray of light in our lives,” admitted the owner of the dog.
