Portuguese dog Bobi loses title of oldest in the world

The Guinness Book of Records has stripped Portuguese Bobi of the title of oldest dog in the world. The famous “Rafeiro Alentejano” (this is the name of the particular breed, originating from the Alentejo region) had received recognition when he was over the age of 30, before dying at 31, last October.
According to his owner Leonel Costa, in fact, Bobi was born on May 11, 1992 and the date was confirmed by the Portuguese veterinary union. However, immediately after Bobi's death, the English veterinarians of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons had expressed a certain skepticism about the venerable age of the four-legged friend. Thus, the Guinness Book of Records had opened an investigation. Today its director, Mark Kinley, declared that there is no evidence regarding Bobi's true date of birth, transforming the suspension of the title into a definitive cancellation.
