The world’s oldest dog celebrates a milestone birthday today: 21! That’s 120 years old in human years! The wire-haired dachshund named Chanel and her owner Denice Shaughnessy, of Port Jefferson Station, N.Y., appeared on the Today show this morning to mark the special occasion. Chanel looked oh-so-cool in red shades (the elderly pooch wears them because she has cataracts). Shaughnessy credits the Dogswell glucosamine treats Chanel eats everyday for her longevity.
