The world’s oldest dog, a Portuguese pooch named Bobi, died on Saturday at 31 years old.
The senior pup was declared the world’s oldest dog by Guinness World Records in February and celebrated his 31st birthday in May.
Veterinarian Dr. Karen Becker posted about Bobi’s passing on Facebook, according to a news release from Guinness.
“Last night, this sweet boy earned his wings,” Becker said. “Despite outliving every dog in history, his 11,478 days on earth would never be enough, for those who loved him.”
Bobi was a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo, a breed of Portuguese dog trained to guard livestock, according to his owner. As he got older, he had difficulties walking and experienced a decline in his eyesight.
Bobi’s owner, Leonel Costa, attributed his dog’s longevity in part to the “calm, peaceful environment” where he lives: the Portuguese village of Conqueiros.
