Meet Bobi, The Oldest Dog Ever

A 30-year-old Portuguese dog has been named as the world's oldest ever by Guinness World Records - beating a record that stood for a century. Bobi is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo - a breed that has an average life expectancy of 12 to 14 years. The previous oldest dog ever was Australia's Bluey, who died in 1939 at the age of 29 years and five months. Our dog Liz has a long way to go to beat this record. She's still a comparatively youthful 18 years old. More:  BBC News (Thanks Mr. Nag)
