Many of us have heard that a vegan, plant-based diet can extend the lifespan of a human being, but did you know that this can be true for our canine friends, too?

Enter Bramble, a blue merle Collie from the United Kingdom who once held the Guinness World Record for oldest living dog. How old was she? A whopping 189 dog years, which equals 27 human years! Bramble thrived on an exclusively vegetarian diet, ate one meal of lentils, rice, and organic veggies each day, and got plenty of exercise.

Bramble was the companion animal to Anne Heritage, a vegan. Heritage calls Bramble an inspiration: “[She] just goes to show that if you eat the right things and keep on exercising, you can extend your life.”

Do you have a veggie-loving pooch in your family?
