The world’s oldest dog celebrated yet another birthday yesterday (May 11).
Bobi, a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo from Conqueiros, Portugal, turned 31 and people are set to come from all over the world to celebrate.
Born in 1992, the handsome fella is set to celebrate with a massive party with 100 guests joining him to celebrate.

The oldest dog in history’s party is set to take place in his village, Conqueiros, with a mixture of local folk, family and pals all turning up to let him know he’s a jolly good fellow.
Part of the Costa family, the party is being thrown by his people on Saturday, May 13 – it is set to have food, drink and all sorts of entertainment.
Bobi eats human food anyway and will be joining his guests for a menu of fresh, locally sourced, fish and meat.
Dancers are due to be present at the do which will, according to 38-year-old Leonel Costa, be a “traditional” Portuguese birthday party.
Speaking to Guinness World Records in February, the time he earned the title as the oldest dog of all time, Costa said: "They’ve come from all over Europe, as well as the USA and even Japan”.
The large public interest and the influx of people coming to say hello have understandably been a lot for the old fella to handle.
Costa continued: "There were a lot of pictures taken and he had to get up and down many times. It wasn’t easy for him.”
The Portuguese farm dog has since recovered, his owner confirmed.
