Maggie said goodbye to the world after lying down in her basket for one last time. Maggie had started struggling to walk, but she did her activities.

She enjoyed walking to the office daily and barking at all the cats on the way. Even though Maggie was deaf and losing her eyesight, she never lost her heart.

7 News Perth did a feature on Maggie before she passed away. She was full of life and love.

She was still going along nicely last week

She was walking from the dairy to the office, growling at the cats and all that sort of thing.

McLaren told local newspaper The Weekly Times.

Maggie was 30-year-old over 200 years old on dog age. The average lifespan of a dog is about 10-13, so Maggie was quite possibly the world’s oldest dog.

Though McLaren doesn’t have any birth certificates for Maggie, he argues that he purchased her four years after his 34-year-old son’s birth.

The oldest dog in the world, according to The Guinness Book of World Records, died in 1939 at age 29. ‘Bluey’ worked as a farm dog, shepherding sheep and herding cattle. Since Maggie does not have any paperwork, Guinness was not able to verify her age.
