Sprightly Yorkshire terrier Billy lays claim to title of the world's oldest dog... at 22

YORKSHIRE terrier Billy is as playful as a pup despite becoming a contender for the title of the world's oldest dog at the ripe age of 22.

He may be getting on a bit in dog years but that doesn't stop him from going out on two walks a day and regularly playing with his doting owner.

Guinness World Records said the title had belonged to a 21-year-old dog from Australia, but Billy, who is blind in one eye from a cataract and has only a handful of teeth left, has now laid claim to the crown.
