How hard can it be to find the world’s oldest dog and why do the Guinness World Records people seem to have botched it so badly when they awarded the longevity title to Chanel?
Paco exercises regularly and eats organic poultry, fish and fruit; and in good
weather he can be seen in Central Park with his human companion, filmmaker and
venture capitalist Bernadine Santistevan. But Paco’s healthy regimen isn’t
the only factor in his longevity, according to Dr. Talia Goldberg of Park East
Animal Hospital, where Paco has been treated since 1990.
“A lot of it has to do with the care that Bernadine provides him.
Acupuncture, physical therapy, Eastern therapy — she goes well beyond for
him.” Thanks in large part to this comprehensive wellness program and to
Bernadine being “in tune” with her dog, “Paco is still with us and in pretty
good condition,” said the New York veterinarian.
Oh, what money can buy along with some birthday publicity.
