Over 100 in people years: 20-year-old Portsmouth pooch gets a bit of pampering

“PORTSMOUTH NH— ‘Pooh’ isn’t exactly the spry pup he used to be, but even hard of hearing 20-year-old poodles enjoy a day of pampering every once in a while.

It was for this reason that Pooh enjoyed a trim and nail clipping on Tuesday that has him looking fine as he heads into his 21st year.

Longtime Portsmouth resident Janet Goodreau — the owner of a dog estimated to be easily over hundred years old in human years — said her fuzzy companion is often described as one of the oldest animals brought to his veterinarian or groomer, but she said he remains a playful animal whose longevity might be attributed to a slightly unusual diet and top-shelf treatment.”

She scores a spare – and a chicken-flavored treat.

Not bad for an 8-year-old yellow Lab who started bowling only a few months ago (albeit eons in dog years) at Doggie Style’s Camp Dogwood, the Philadelphia pet boutique and dog care that provides cognitively challenging activities to its four-legged charges.”
