WATCH: Tribute to Maggie the Kelpie ‘World’s Oldest Dog’

An Australian Kelpie named Maggie who is thought to be aged around 30 years old (approximately 200 in human years) has passed away peacefully, according to her owner Brian McLaren, a dairy farmer in Woolsthorp, Victoria, who confirmed the news to The Weekly Times.

Maggie was never officially confirmed as the ‘World’s Oldest Dog’, as her owner had lost the original paperwork for her, meaning that her age could not be independently verified, but speaking to the news outlet Mr McLaren said: “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.”

But added that she had started to deteriorate recently, “She just went downhill in two days and I said yesterday morning when I went home for lunch … ‘She hasn’t got long now’. Although still very raw, he said, “I’m sad, but I’m pleased she went the way she went…we were great mates.”
