A new pet has been named the world’s longest-lived dog.

Pebbles is a 22-year-old Toy Fox Terrier from Taylors, South Carolina, who recently won a Guinness World Records title.

According to Guinness World Records, the puppy, born on March 28, 2000, is even older than the previous record holder, 21-year-old Chihuahua Toby Keith from Florida.

Pebbles owners Bobby and Julie Gregory realized Pebbles might have a chance at the title when they heard about Toby Keith.

“Bobby was sitting on the couch and friends and family started texting and calling, telling stories they had seen about a 21-year-old dog getting the record,” Julie Gregory told Guinness World Records. “When I saw the Toby Keith story on the news, I applied.”

According to Guinness, Pebble slept and listened to country music every day.

“Pebble is like a wild teen who loves to sleep during the day and sleeps all night,” Julie Gregory told Guinness.

“She likes to listen to country music while she sleeps,” she added. “Two of her favorite country singers are Conway Twitty and Dwight Yokum.”

Some of her favorite pastimes include snuggling under a blanket, playing under the palm trees in Gregory’s backyard, and taking a walk with Bobby Gregory.

Guinness reports that pebbles also love food.

According to Guinness, the dog was placed on the cat food diet in 2012 because it has more protein in meat than dog food, but she also enjoys the occasional steak or chicken burgers.

“Occasionally she’ll sneak a hamburger or a hot dog,” Julie Gregory said.

According to Guinness, when Pebbles was 22, the Gregory family gave her a bunch of spare ribs and a warm bubble bath.

“Most people who know Pebbles can’t believe how long she lived,” Julie Gregory told Guinness World Records. “They always joke about it and keep telling us how amazing it is that we still have her because most of them have known us for over 20 years and remember when we got her.”

Julie Gregory says the secret to a dog’s longevity is simple.

“Treat them like family because they are,” Julie Gregory said. “Give them a happy and positive environment, good clean food and proper healthcare as much as possible.”

Although the Gregory family never expected their pet to claim the world record title, Julie Gregory said she and her husband were “really honored”.
