The world's oldest living dog, Pusuke, is dead. The dog could have created another record, had it lived for two years and eight months more.
Pusuke, who died at 26 years and nine months, met with an accident, causing its internal organs to rupture, was certified as the world's oldest living dog by the Guinness Book of Records last December.
Pusuke took the record of the oldest living dog from a beagle named Butch, who died in 2003, at the age of 28.
Meanwhile, the record for the oldest dog, dead or alive, is currently held by an Australian cattle-dog, Bluey, who was put to sleep in November 1939. Bluey was 29 years and five months old at the time of his death.
