Only recently, a Jack Russell named Daisy turned 22. Apparently, this makes her the oldest pooch currently living in Britain.
Mark Barsby-Finch from Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, i.e. Daisy's owner, explains that, all things considered, this pooch has not changed all that much since he rescued her from a shelter back in 1993.
Sources say that, despite her age, this dog still enjoys playing and going for a walk every once in a while.
Granted, sleeping is her favorite hobby, yet this happens to also be true for some pets (and even people) still in their early days.
Daisy's owner explains that, as far as he is concerned, this dog lived to reach this impressive age because it never ate any dog food, and always kept active.
“Daisy has never had a tin of dog food in her life, she eats exactly what we eat. Her favourite meal is roast chicken and mashed potatoes, but she'll happily eat anything.”
“She's partial to a takeaway Chinese, and she loves a homemade chilli too, as long as it's not too spicy,” Mark Barsby-Finch told members of the press.
