Chanel, the world's oldest dog (according to the Guinness Book of World Records) died today in New York state at the age of 21 or 147, depending on whether you count dog years or human years. Already, an insensitive woman in Germany is claiming her dog is older, but who cares?
Reaction spread across the dog world as the news broke out about Chanel's death. Benji remarked that Chanel was a great dog but wished she would have used her status more to speak out regarding the Michael Vick situation.
When asked for his comment on the death, Spuds McKenzie barked three times and wagged his tail. The Taco Bell dog just shrugged and said "Yo quiero Taco Bell".
Despite the fact that she had no ties to Buffalo, mayor Byron Brown used the dog's death as a photo opportunity and posthumously awarded her the key to the city. "Chanel was an inspiration to us all. Her determination to live provided hope to all the citizens of Buffalo" Brown stated. He also used the occasion to ask the citizens of Buffalo to stop yelling "Urkel!" whenever they see him at public events.
