The World’s Oldest Dog, Maggie, Has Closed Her Eyes And Taken Her Last Nap

Maggie was an absolutely gorgeous Australian sheepdog that has recently passed away at an age that many people believe are breaking world records. Her heartbroken owner confirmed the death to local media outlets.

Dairy farmer, Brian McLaren, was devastated by the passing of his 30-year-old Kelpie. She had been by his side for many years. He says that she was fairly healthy overall up to the time that she passed.

“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,” McLaren, who lives in Victoria, Australia, told The Weekly Times.

“She just went downhill in two days, and I said yesterday morning when I went home for lunch … ‘She hasn’t got long now.’”

McLaren said that Maggie had been curled up in her bed the evening before he went to bed, and she was in the exact same position come morning. His heart dropped to the floor, but he did find a bright side.
