Meet the World's Oldest Dog;
145 Years Old

A new World's Oldest Dog has been named by Guinness World Records and it's Otto, a dachshund-terrier mixed dog who lives in England. Otto is 20 years and 8 months old. His owner, Lynn Jones of Shrewsbury, England has had Otto since he was six weeks old.

Though nearly 21 with a touch of arthritis, Otto "doesn't really like walkies any more," Lynn remarks. "He gets about ten yards down the road then looks back over his shoulder as if to say 'I want to go home.' [But] he can still jump all over people when they come round."

What is Otto's secret to longevity? Lynn says,"Plenty of love, plenty of good food and regular check-ups at the vets."
