World’s Oldest Dog Dies

Worlds+Oldest+Dog+Dies

On October 23rd, 2023, the world’s oldest dog, Bobi, was pronounced dead by its owner, Leonel Costa. Bobi was said to have lived a quiet life on a farm in the village of Conqueiros in Portugal with four cats. Costa stated he had him since he was eight years old, Bobi being born on May 11, 1992, making him 31 years old. After his death, Costa stated that to all of the dog or animal lovers out there, the secret to Bobi’s death was simply good food, fresh air, and lots of love. I think this is what a lot of pet owners should take into consideration. “Bobi eats what we eat” States Costa. Remember people, dogs can eat much more than just kibble or regular dog food brands, they are even encouraged to eat more than that. Giving your pet a healthy diet of real genuine food can change their life, just like Bobi’s. Costa also states that Bobi was never put on a leash which ties into the ‘fresh air’ secret. Bobi has won the Guinness world record for the world’s oldest dog. . Bobi’s breed has an expectancy to live till about 10-14 years of age. But all in all, Bobi just had a great life.  It proves that if you treat animals with respect, they can live quite a long life.  RIP Bobi.

Hi, my name is Mia McKinnon and I'm an 11th grader at CSS. I decided to join journalism because I've always loved to read, write, and share the truth with others because I believe that people should know the full picture of everything, good or bad. I will do my best to provide that to the Conrad Howler. My pathway is Physical Therapy, and I enjoy reading about world issues and learning about how to solve them. I look forward to this year in journalism, it will give me and many others the joy and creativity to help people look through a different lens to see another side of the picture the world paints for us.
