August or “Augie” was adopted when she was 14 and her health is surprisingly good, said one of her owners, Jennifer Hetterscheidt. Augie trembles a little when she wakes up, but she continues to enjoy the daily walks in the backyard.
Augie’s owners, Jennifer and Steve Hetterscheidt, planned a party and invited 100 people for her birthday. However, plans had to be canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, Augie received gifts, a carrot cake and all her favorite dishes, such as blueberries, bread and pasta.
Most dogs live between 8 and 15 years, but there are cases in which some dogs, usually of smaller breeds, exceed the 20 years milestone. The oldest known dog was the Australian Cattle Dog Bluey, which was euthanized at the age of 29 in November 1939, according to Guinness World Records.
