All good things must come to an end, especially the life a true companion. Maggie, believed to be the world’s oldest dog, passed away this week. Maggie was 30 human years old, making her over 200 in “dog years.”
The Kelpie (a shepherd breed) lived with dairy farmer Brian McLaren for the past three decades in Woolsthorpe, Australia. McLaren told The Weekly Times that Maggie went peacefully in her sleep earlier this week.
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. She just went downhill in two days and I said yesterday morning when I went home for lunch … She hasn’t got long now.
Rest in peace, girl. You’re in a better place now. (Cue My Way by Sinatra)
