(CNN) — Pebbles, the world’s oldest dog, has died at the age of 22, according to Guinness World Records.

The record-breaking toy fox terrier died of natural causes at her
home in Taylors, South Carolina, on Monday,
said Guinness in a
news release.

The elderly pooch was five months shy of her 23rd birthday,
according to the release.

Pebbles was only recognized as the world’s oldest living dog
earlier this year. In April, Guinness had initially named
 
a 21-year
old chihuahua named TobyKeith
 
as the oldest living dog — but
when Pebbles’ owners saw the news, they realized their dog was
actually older and they leapt into action like a dog chasing a
squirrel.

FAMOUS WAR DOG WAS HONORED TODAY

Sergeant Stubby (1916 or 1917 – March 16, 1926)

   
    
    

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — A new monument in Connecticut honors service animals — with a statue of one of the nation’s most famous war dogs.

The sculpture, "Stubby Salutes," was unveiled Saturday in Veterans Memorial
Park in Middletown.

SGT Stubby was a Boston-terrier mix that traveled to Europe with the U.S.
Army’s renown 26th "Yankee Division" during World War I.

Stubby became famous for warning soldiers of incoming gas attacks and
locating wounded soldiers on the battlefield, staying with them until help
arrived.

His story was the subject of a major animated movie last month, "Sgt. Stubby:
An American Hero."

The new bronze sculpture, created by artist Susan Bahary, is the culmination
of a three-decade effort to create a memorial, spearheaded by the family of
Robert Conroy, the army corporal who adopted Stubby during training.
