A wire-haired dachshund that held the record as the world’s oldest dog and celebrated its last birthday with a party at a dog hotel and spa has died at age 21, or 147 in dog years.
The dog, named Chanel, died Friday of natural causes at her owners’ home in suburban Port Jefferson Station, on Long Island.
Chanel, as stylish as her legendary namesake, wore tinted goggles for her cataracts in her later years and favored sweaters because she was sensitive to the cold, owners Denice and Karl Shaughnessy said Monday.

Sad news in Los Angeles today. Last night, Ozzy Osbourne’s dog, Little Bit was killed by coyotes. Ozzy, pictured above with one of the family’s dogs was very upset.
Â Daughter Kelly Osbourne says her dad is devastated and that Little Bit was “his other woman”.Â How sad!
Â This isn’t the first time the Osbournes have had issues with the coyotes. In 2003, Ozzy rescued Pomeranian Pipi in their garden at their Beverly Hills home, fighting the wild dog and wrestling Pipi from it’s jaws! Pipi was fine after surgery.
Unfortunately, this is a common occurance in the Hollywood hills; coyotes abound there and most people know to keep their small pets indoors after dark. Of course,Â dogsÂ do need to go out every now and then.
Â It’s sad, but you really have to be vigilant; those coyotes are so quiet until they attack.
Our condolences to you Ozzy!
Sharon Osbourne has added a new little Pomeranian pup to the zoo!
Daughter KellyÂ Osbourne Â twittered about newest addition, “Puffy” who only weighs 1 pound!
I wonder what Ozzy has to say about another pup in the house, haha. This one’s so cute though, how can you get mad?
