Maggie, a Kelpie dubbed the world’s oldest canine, has died at the seasoned age of 30. In dog years, she would have been approaching her third century of life, according to the Weekly Times.

Her owner, Brian McLaren, a dairy farmer in Woolsthorpe, in south Australia, shared the news with the Weekly Times on Tuesday. He said she died peacefully, curled up in her bed.

“She was still going along nicely last week. She was walking from the dairy to the office and growling at the cats and all that sort of thing,” McLaren told the newspaper. “I’m sad, but I’m pleased she went the way she went.”

It’s unclear whether Maggie was officially the world’s oldest dog because McLaren lost her papers, the Guardian reported. However, McLaren said he got her when his son, currently 34, had just turned 4.

Long live the memory of Maggie!
