VIDEO: The World's Oldest Dog Turns 21

JR

A dog named Chanel turns 21 today, making her the world's oldest dog in the eyes of the Guinness Book of World Records. Chanel's 21 years translate to 120 "human years," vets say.

Chanel was born on May 6, 1988. She'll appear for the first time in the upcoming 2010 Guinness edition.

While she may be the world's oldest dog right now, though, Chanel doesn't hold the title of oldest canine ever (at least, not yet): An Australian cattle dog named Bluey lived to the ripe old age of 29 years and five months, dying in the late 30s.
