Rest in Peace Pebbles
Pebbles, the world’s oldest dog, died on Monday. She was surrounded by her family, at her home in Taylors, South Carolina. She was a Toy Fox Terrier who died of natural causes.
The oldest living dog record was set on May 17, 2022. At that point, she was 22 years and 50 days old. Pebbles was five months away from her 23rd birthday. In human years we calculated that Pebbles would have been 98 in human years based on a chart by Petfinder.
“She spent her days enjoying country music and being loved,” Pebbles’ family remembered her in a statement Tuesday. “Pebbles was not just another dog, she had her own way about her and her own personality.”
The family enjoyed dressing Pebbles in precious outfits. These outfits included a fun pumpkin hat and a pink dress. These adorable pictures can be found on the pooch’s Instagram account.
She was a once-in-a-lifetime companion, and it was our honor to have had the blessing to have had her as a pet, and family member,” Pebbles dog parents Bobby and Julie Gregory said in a statement on Instagram. “There was never anyone who met Pebbles that didn’t love her. She will be deeply missed.”
RIP precious Pebbles.
