It’s sad when a beloved dog dies, but the passing of Daisy, a Jack Russell Terrier who lived in Gloucestershire England, has garnered sadness from those who knew her and from people around the world. At 23 1/2 years old, Daisy was officially considered to be the oldest dog in the United Kingdom. She died quietly of natural causes at her home.
Daisy was originally adopted by Mark Barsby-Finch in 1993, when she was two years old. When she turned 22 last year, she celebrated it as her 100th — or at least the equivalent thereof, according to experts in her breed.
