      27-year-old vegan collie could be world's oldest living dog
      A border collie said to be 27 could make it into the Guinness Book of World
      Records as the world's oldest living dog.

      Bramble's owner Anne Heritage says she's still alert and active and
      goes for a walk four times a day near her home in Bridgwater, Somerset.

      The 43-year-old says she feeds her a vegan diet of rice,
      lentils and organic vegetables. (Ms Heritage is vegan herself.)

      Her partner Roy Franklin takes her swimming once a week at a canine
      hydrotherapy pool.

      A Guinness spokesman says the dog could be the oldest living and they are
      keen to examine any application.

      The Daily Mail reports Britain's oldest dog was a pedigree papillon called
      Fred who died at the of 29 in 2000. The world's longest-lived dog was an
      Australian cattle dog who lived to be just months older than Fred.

      Ms Heritage says Bramble nearly died last year after injuring her back in a
      fall, but has become better with the help of the swimming sessions.
      She said: "She loves exercise and has a real passion for being outdoors.
      She can be a thorn in my side when she's restless, but it's what keeps her


      Note: we do not necessarily propose that a vegan diet is good for all dogs,
      although it has been demonstrated that many dogs can thrive without meat.
