May I See Your ID?

I don't think a cute little doxin named Chanel has heard that question for quite a while. Today she turned 21-years-old and just became the oldest living dog on record. She even had a guest appearance on the Today Show this morning. What's next, Willard Scott announcing her face on a Smucker's jar?

She's the world's oldest pooch, with 21 years under her collar, but she never learned how to beg.

"She's independent. If she didn't want to do something, she had a look she would give, and she usually got her way," Long Islander Denice Shaughnessy joked of her aging dachshund, Chanel, whose 147th birthday -- in people years -- is today.

Chanel took the title as the oldest dog last spring when a 28-year-old beagle from Virginia died.

Chanel is celebrating this milestone with a woofday bash in Manhattan. Now that's a girl who knows how to party in style. We hope she has a wonderful day hanging with her pup pals. Happy Woofday!

Thanks to our Catster buddy Junior for meowing this to me.
