Farewell Chanel. The feisty wire-haired dachshund with a penchant for peanut butter died of natural causes Friday at her home outside of New York City. At the time of her passing, Chanel was 21 - or 147 in dog years - and held the Guinness World Record as the oldest living dog.
Chanel, despite having to wear goggles for her cataracts, exercised daily and ate home-cooked chicken with her dog food, but good care wasn't entirely responsible for her long life, said her owners.
Owner Denice Shaughnessy, who adopted Chanel as a tiny puppy from a shelter in Virginia, told the Associated Press: "Dogs are God's angels sent here to look out for us."
