Oldest dog 'not too old to play'


Otto Jones, a Dachshund terrier cross from Shropshire, may be the oldest dog in the world at 20 years and eight month - but he still knows how to play.

He has been recognised as the oldest living dog by Guinness World Records and, despite his age, still enjoys playing ball with neighbours' children.

His owners Lynn and Peter Jones, from Shrewsbury, said he was a "loveable, affectionate rogue".

The couple have had him since he was a puppy.
