With a dog-friendly cake and loved ones around her, August the golden retriever celebrated her birthday recently. But little did she know that as she licked the frosting off her cake, she was making history.
The pup, affectionately known as Augie, turned 20, making her the oldest known golden retriever.
On April 24, Augie celebrated her 20th birthday with her humans, Jennifer and Steve Hetterscheidt, and her three furry siblings at their home in Oakland, Tennessee.
While the coronavirus pandemic canceled the 100-person party planned by Augie’s humans, they still made sure Augie felt loved.
“She had a dog-friendly carrot cake, the interior of the house was completely decorated,” “She got all her favorite foods like blueberries, bread and pasta, of course, in moderation.”
