The Famous Dogs Image-n-Info Bank Presents:

Adjutant


This image & the accompanying text came from The Guinness® Book of World Records Revised & Enlarged Edition, 1966

" Dogs of over 20 are very rare but even 34 years has been accepted by some authorities. The oldest reliably reported dog in the world was "Adjutant," a black Labrador gun dog who was whelped on August 14, 1936, and died on November 20, 1963, aged 27 years 3 months, in the care of his lifetime owner, James Hawkes, a gamekeeper at the Revesby Estate, near Boston, Lincolnshire, England. On December 18, 1937, the death of a collie, aged 27 was reported by its owner, Mrs. Cole of Cyrus Street, Clerkenwell, London, England."

Listkeeper's Note: the odd appearance of his eyes is most likely due to severe cataracts; i would guess he was totally blind when this picture was taken. Just in case you were wondering.
