SPRIGHTLY 21-year-old Queenie is thought to be Britain’s oldest dog.
The black and white terrier is the equivalent of 147 in human years.
Queenie still enjoys a potter around the garden and a “mad five minutes”.
She is almost totally blind and has a special pushchair for when she gets tired of walking.
Owner Bridget Pike said: “Queenie is one tough cookie. Despite the fact she can’t run around like she used to, she loves to be out and about.”

Bridget, who works at the Dogs Trust in Salisbury, Wilts, adopted stray Queenie in 2018.
She also has terriers Bonnie, ten, and Bo, 12.
She said: “I feel so privileged to have been able to offer Queenie a happy home. She brings so much joy to my life, I couldn’t imagine my life without her.”
