Otto crowned world's 'oldest dog'

A dog from Shropshire has been crowned the world's oldest canine, which his owners have put down to a "wholesome diet of Sunday dinners and vegetables".
Otto Jones, a Dachshund terrier cross from Reabrook, Shrewsbury, is 20 years and eight months old.
He has been recognized as the oldest living dog by Guinness World Records and despite his age still enjoys playing ball with neighbors' children.
His owners Lynn and Peter Jones said he was a "loveable, affectionate rogue". The couple has had him since he was a puppy.
He is a bit deaf, but apart from a few grey whiskers and a touch of arthritis they said he was fit and healthy.
"The only thing I can put it down to is plenty of good wholesome food. He loves his Sunday dinners and his vegetables," Mrs. Jones said.
