Yorkie, terrier mix vie for world’s oldest dog title

It turns out the Scottish Terrier and Dog News was right to be suspicious about Chanel the Dachshund’s claim to be the world’s oldest dog.

In Louisiana, a terrier mix named Max is headed for 26 years old this summer (see video) while across the pond in Britain, Sammy the Yorkshire Terrier has hit 23.

Alas, it looks like the title will not go to either of them but rather to a 26-year-old poodle named Taffy Gayle who has her AKC registration to back her up.
