Bobi, a pure breed Rafeiro do Alentejo, made history on May 11th, 2023, when he celebrated his 31st birthday, becoming the world’s oldest living dog. Guinness World Records declared that he is the longest living dog ever, surpassing Bluey, an Australian Cattle Dog that lived for 29 years and five months between 1910 and 1933.
Bobi has spent his entire life in a serene environment with his four cat companions, and he has never been on a leash, according to sources. Bobi’s owner, Leonal Costa, who has quietly cared for him since birth, credits his long life to his tranquil lifestyle, natural, unprocessed diet, and the love and care he has received.
Since being recognized as the world’s oldest living dog, Bobi has attracted attention from the media worldwide, with journalists visiting his home to capture a glimpse of the beloved canine. Despite facing challenges such as struggling to stand up and sit down, Bobi is reportedly in good health and regularly receives medical check-ups.
Bobi’s birthday party was a grand celebration, with a hundred guests served with local meats and fish, and a dance troupe performed. Bobi even participated in the dance routine, making the party more memorable.
Bobi’s tale is unique not just because of his age, but also because of the love and care he has gotten from his owner. It demonstrates the favorable benefit of giving our dogs with a quiet and caring atmosphere, which can help to their general well-being and lifespan.
Bobi’s extraordinary life story should serve as a reminder of the beauty and joy that dogs bring into our lives. We should honor their achievements and appreciate their presence while giving them with the care and attention they require to flourish.
