The world’s oldest dog has just celebrated his 31st birthday, maintaining his title as the only dog that has made it to its third decade.
Bobi is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo, a Portuguese breed of livestock guardian stock. He gained fame earlier this year when he entered the Guiness Book of Records for being the world’s oldest dog.
Since his time in the limelight, Bobi has been chilling at home, due to the excitement of the media attention requiring him to have a little extra rest. However, to celebrate his special day Bobi had a party in his rural village of Conqueiros in Leiria, western Portugal, where he has resided his entire life.
People from around the world flew in for Bobi’s birthday, with 100 guests in attendance.
Bobi’s owner, Leonel Costa, told Guinness World Records: ‘We’ve had a lot of journalists and people come from all over the world to take a picture with Bobi.
‘They’ve come from all over Europe, as well as the USA and even Japan.’
Bob’s celebrations included a dancing troupe, with Bobi participating in one of the dances too!
