World's Oldest Dog-Bobi

May 28, 2023

On May 16, 2023 Bobi was officially recognized by The Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest living dog.

Bobi, a Portuguese Livestock Guardian Dog, (Rafeiro do Alentejo) lives in rural southern Portugual. 
At 31 years old, Bobi is the oldest known dog.πŸΎπŸ’•
According to his owner, Leonel Costa,  Bobi's longevity is due in large part to a calm peaceful environment.
In addition Costa credits Bobi's diet for his long healthy life.
What is his diet You Ask-
           πŸŽŠ  PEOPLE FOOD- The whole food that his owners ate everyday
Another key factor that Bobi has in common with previous recognized oldest dogs is constant movement. Bobi was never chained up and wandered all day every day.
Bluey the previous oldest recorded dog was a cattle dog that worked the farm all day every day, also eating whatever he found, people food, and farm scraps. 
In other words Whole Food and Movement
Bobi's story is a reminder that sometimes, the simplest things in life are the most important. By providing our pets with a healthy whole food diet and a peaceful environment, we can help them live long, happy lives. And who knows? Maybe one day, they'll break a record or two, just like Bobi.
