    Maggie the Kelpie, believed to be the world's oldest dog, passed away while asleep in her basket Sunday night.

    Maggie, who belonged to Australian dairy farmer, Brian McLaren, was 30 at the time of her death. That's approximately 200 in human years. According to McLaren, Maggie had been happy and healthy up until two days before her death, when she began to deteriorate.

    "She was still going along nicely last week," McLaren told local newspaper The Weekly Times. "She was walking from the dairy to the office and growling at the cats and all that sort of thing."

    Though McLaren doesn't have any birth certificates for Maggie, he argues that he purchased her four years after his 34-year-old son's.

    My old guy is about 15 and it's been hard to watch him lose his flexibility and get arthritis in his hips. But he still has a good appetite and the tail wags. I'm not ready for him to go.

    She probably smoked cigars. That's why legendary comedians live so long.

    Treasure every moment you can. Take lots of vids/pics and give lots of hugs.

    Me too. It sucks that they're so short lived. You bring a puppy home and in a blink of an eye he turns 10 and is showing signs of old age.

    The worst part about pet ownership is that inevitable moment where you have to say goodbye. That really sucks.

    But having one die at home of old age in their sleep is a gift from heaven.
