A 21-year-old dog named Queenie is possibly the oldest living dog in Britain. Her age could sound even more interesting since it is equivalent to 103 years in dog time. She used to be a stray until Bridget Pike took her in and provided her with all the love and affection she deserves.
Queenie might be really old, but she does not spend all her time lying around. She may not be as young and energetic as she once was, but her love for the outdoors has never waned. Bridget thoughtfully bought a very comfy dog stroller for Queenie, which they often use whenever the veteran pooch is tired during their walks but has not gotten enough of the sunshine and fresh air she craves.
Aside from going for walks in the woods, she also enjoys frolicking around in the garden. She has two canine siblings, Bonnie and Bo, who are half his age and keep her company. The old dog is also practically blind now, but her smelling powers have heightened, and she would refuse to eat unless her food is topped with her favorite food, chicken.
Bridget met the adorable pup at the Dogs Trust Salisbury Rehoming Center, where she works as the shelter’s assistant manager. It took years before her circumstances allowed her to adopt Queenie. She finally took her home in 2018, but the senior dog used to be very shy that she even hid for the first two weeks in Bridget’s dining room. Her patience and dedication eventually won Queenie’s trust that the once timid pooch now proudly rules the house.
Bridget’s only regret is that she should have adopted Queenie sooner. Her life has been more meaningful and happier since she began sharing it with an old and charming dog. She hopes everyone will consider adopting senior dogs since these lovely oldies still have a lot to share.
21 years of age!
