Dog believed to be world's oldest dies peacefully

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Maggie the Kelpie, believed to be the world's oldest dog and thought to be 30-years-old, passed away peacefully Monday night.

Maggie's owner, Brian McLaren, confirmed the news to Australian news outlet The Weekly Times.

"She was 30-years-old, she was still going along nicely last week, she was walking from the dairy to the office and growling at the cats and all that sort of thing," Brian said.

Kelpie Maggie was believed to be 30-years-old - in human years she would have been approaching her third century, according to The Weekly Times.

Brian said when he went home Monday night, Maggie was tucked in her bed, and he found her there in Tuesday morning when he arrived at the farm.

"I'm sad, but I'm pleased she went the way she went," he said.
