MELVILLE, N.Y. — Chanel, a 21-year-old dachshund believed to be the world's oldest dog, has died.

The small pooch, who wore sunglasses for her cataracts and rode in a stroller when she could no longer walk, died Friday at home in Port Jefferson Station on Long Island, said her owner, Denice Shaughnessy.
