What would bloggers do without infographics? Here’s a fun one created by Pet365. I’m not sure about the “Fastest car window opened by a dog” record — after all, who knows how many other dogs simply neglected to register their accomplishments? — but I’m proud to note that Giant George, the world’s tallest dog, lives here in Tucson.
Update: I’m sorry to report that Pusuke, the world’s oldest dog, passed away peacefully on December 6.
The dog’s owner, Yumiko Shinohara, said the male cross-breed died at Sakura in the Tochigi prefecture, north of Tokyo, according to the Kyodo news agency.
Pusuke was reportedly eating well and staying active until Monday, when he lost his appetite and had difficulty breathing. Pusuke died peacefully, minutes after his owner returned home from a walk.
“I think (Pusuke) waited for me to come home,” she said, according to Kyodo.
R.I.P. Pusuke. You had a very good life and very good death.
