    Default Max the terrier celebrates his 26th birthday

    A terrier-cross in Louisiana celebrated his 26th birthday yesterday, making him a contender for the title of world's oldest dog.
    Max, who is a staggering 182 in dog years, has a veterinary birth certificate to prove his impressive age, and is awaiting official confirmation from Guinness World Records.
    Owner Janelle Derouen, 49, bought her beloved pet in 1983 from a local sugar cane farmer.

    Dog years: Max and his owner Janelle Derouen yesterday as the mixed breed terrier celebrated his 26th birthday

    'He was the only one in the litter that was brown and I liked the colour so I took him home,' she said.
    Until recently it was believed that a New York-based dog called Chanel was the oldest dog alive after turning 21 in May - but the Dachshund-cross, who is riddled with health problems, is a full five years junior to Max.
    Max, in turn, is still in fine health and only suffers from mild arthritis and some cataracts. He has been visiting the same vet since birth at the local Robichaux Veterinary Clinic.

    'I never spoiled Max,' said mother-of-five Mrs Derouen, who lives with her husband Billy, also 49, in New Iberia.
    'I've never fed him anything but Kiddles and Bits [dog food] and a few treats like those beefy doggy bones.
    'We don't give him any food from our table,' she said.


    Puppy love: Mrs Derouen attributes her pet's age to his laid-back attitude: 'He likes to lie down, relax, nap, sleep a lot and keep life simple,' she says

    'He's a very, very laid back dog. He likes to lie down, relax, nap, sleep a lot and keep life simple. He'll play with the kids for a bit but if they bother him too long he'll wander off.
    'He doesn't have any fancy toys, just a bit of rope and a regular squeaky ball.'
    Mrs Derouen, who has eleven grandchildren, held a special birthday party for Max yesterday. 'We spoiled him just a little bit that once,' she said.

    26? If she didn't have the vet records to prove it I'd think she was full of crap. Dag 26? I have never heard of a dog living past 16 years. I had no idea.

    Small(er) dogs can live up to 18-20 years old. A neighbor of ours had
    a miniature poodle that was almost 19.

    He must just have great genes. Kibbles 'n Bits is total crap as far as pet foods go.

    Omg, what a sweet-looking dog. Mutts are the best, he looks so young for his age! She says he's laid back but I wonder if he's a little terror sometimes? Cute doggie!

    i was expecting a toothless, greying and wilted looking dog. Cute dog but doesn't look a day over 6 years.
