Chichi - oldest living dog in the world set world record 2010

Chichi - World's Oldest Dog chichi set world record 2010.

On Morton Street in the West Village lives a small poodle nearly the same color as the pavement upon which he takes his seven-times daily constitutional. He may very well be the oldest dog on the planet. But he may not live long enough to wear his crown.

According to a long string of people who have owned the little canine, he is at least 22 years old, possibly 24. The official holder of the title of oldest living dog, as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records, is a mutt from Victoria, Australia, named Sako, born on Dec. 7, 1988 — a relative puppy at 21.

But last week, the West Village poodle fell ill with an as-yet-unidentified ailment, and the proof that he is in fact as old as his family believes may come too late.

He goes by Chichi, or Uncle Chichi, or the Cheech, though at this point what he is called is a bit of a non-issue: he’s almost entirely deaf. His vision is also obscured by cataracts. The loss of two senses, however, doesn’t seem to impede him from following his owner, Frank Pavich, 36, a television producer, or Mr. Pavich’s fiancĂ©e, Janet Puhalovic, 34, down Morton Street, where he stands out among the trendy French bulldogs.

As it grew clearer a few months ago that Chichi’s longevity might indeed be exceptional, Mr. Pavich, with some aid from this reporter, decided to look into getting him into the record book. The people at Guinness need several pieces of proof: documentation of Chichi’s age, or a veterinarian’s statement attesting to it, and pictures or videos that show him aging through the decades. These would then be reviewed by a Guinness board in London.

Mr. Pavich adopted Chichi in January 1996, when the human was 22 and the dog was perhaps 8 or 10. “His early life is shrouded in mystery,” said Mr. Pavich.

According to Celestine Lehmann-Haupt, a relative of Mr. Pavich’s whose mother, Laura Frost, was Chichi’s original owner, the dog was adopted from the John Ancrum Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, in Charleston, S.C., in the fall or winter of 1987 or 1988. Then, shelter employees estimated he was 1½ or 2 years old, she said in an e-mail message.

But the shelter shredded its old records when it moved three years ago, a spokeswoman said.

Similar verification hurdles arose further down the chronological chain. Chichi still has his tag (No. 2836) from Animal Medical West in Charleston, S.C. But Dr. Thomas Hentges, a veterinarian who has treated many tens of thousands of dogs since he began practicing in 1985, said he couldn’t recall the dog nor his then-owners. Dr. Hentges, too, has purged his records.

In 1992, when Mrs. Frost fell ill, Chichi was adopted by her granddaughter, Jane Maybank. (Ms. Maybank, who lives in Charleston, has dug through her grandmother’s old photos for pictures of the Cheech as a pup, to no avail.) She handed Chichi off to Mr. Pavich, who then lived in California, after the dog growled at her new baby.

In the late ’90s, Chichi developed cataracts, glaucoma and a corneal ulcer. At one point he required hourly eye drops around the clock. Mr. Pavich set an alarm and kept a checklist at his bedside to log every drop. “We’ve spent more than a college education on him,” he said. “When you love someone, you don’t care.”

Chichi’s vet in California, Kathleen Boldy, who first saw him in 1998, wrote in a letter to the Guinness Records committee that dogs tend to develop cataracts after the age of 8. His condition, she wrote, was consistent with the age his owners believed him to be.

Chichi is well traveled. Before arriving in New York in 2008, he accompanied Mr. Pavich on location around the country. In February this year, after rebounding from a mysterious illness, Chichi traveled with Mr. Pavich and Ms. Puhalovic to their native Croatia, where he posed for photos in front of monuments like the church of St. Donat in Zadar.

Most people fitting into a Mini Cooper Car set Guinness world Record

Local mum Fiona Munro (42) is desperate to write Perth's name into the Guinness Book of Records by fitting the most people ever into a Mini Cooper at an event on Saturday.

However, stringent rules surrounding the bid mean she has to find a certain model to be absolutely sure the attempt is accepted by the governing body.

Despite months of planning and searching she has still not tracked down an original Mini Cooper made between 1961 and 1969 or a replica of the original made between 1996 and 2000.

She needs to fit 22 people into the retro car to claim the wacky title and has been given access to a new car so the attempt will go ahead regardless.

"Hopefully by following all the other guidelines we will still be able to get the record but Guinness haven't been very forthcoming about that," Fiona said.

"It's a frustrating process dealing with them as they take a long time to reply to queries but we will go ahead as planned and hope for the best.

"But I'm still holding out hope that someone will be able to provide me with a proper model of car in the next week.

"I can pick it up and take it back and it is insured for the day. It doesn't even have to work, as long as it has all the internal fittings like seats, steering wheel and gear stick."

The record attempt is part of Fiona's Inspire event — an afternoon of challenges to motivate and energise young people, arranged as part of her recently completed college course.

There are activities for anyone aged from five to 21 on the plaza at Perth Concert Hall, like song and story writing, rapping and clothing design.

The Inspire event takes place from 1-5pm, with the record attempt at around 3.50pm.

Dr.John Williams-oldest fighter to ever set Guinness world record - Mixed Martial Arts fighter

Mixed Martial Arts fighter Dr.John Williams oldest fighter to ever set Guinness world record 2010.

To the amazement of many, Dr. John Williams, a 70-year-old Mixed Martial Arts fighter, has willingly scheduled himself to take on Larry Brubaker (age 49) as part of the “Wild Card” event for Elite 1 MMA Productions at the Casino New-Nouveau Brunswick in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada, on July 24th.

Dr. Williams, a current Guinness world record holder, will attempt to break two new Guinness world records with the assistance from Mr. Brubaker, as the oldest fighter to ever compete inside of an MMA cage, as well as, the oldest combined age for any two fighters in the history of MMA.

All of this begs the question—is age really just a number?

Well, Dr. Williams certainly thinks so.

In fact, despite certain criticisms, this 34th generation Gunshi, in Saigo Ha Daito-Ryu Aiki Bujutsu (a 1200-year-old Samurai Art) is out to prove it.

In researching Dr. Williams, I have quickly come to the realization that it is near impossible to condense this man’s entire life into a few simple paragraphs that will in any way do justice to his amazing and unique life experiences.

Nevertheless, I will try…

Dr. John J. Williams (a.k.a. Gray Wolf) was born on March 7th, 1940, in a small town in Eastern Canada. His parents were both French speaking Native American Indians of the Wabenaki tribal nation and he is the direct bloodline descendant of the Wabanaki War Chief, Madockaweando.

Dr. Williams began training in martial arts and boxing back in 1947 at the age of 7.

By the age of 16, Dr. Williams had already been introduced to Olympic-style weightlifting, Kodokan Judo, and Tani-Ha Jiu-Jitsu.

By the time he was 23-years-old, Dr. Williams was giving strongman demonstrations such as bending spikes, tearing phonebooks and licenses plates in half, and holding two jeeps from going in the opposite directions. His most impressive feat of strength however, was a one hand dead-lift with 500 pounds.

In later years, Dr. Williams also went on to study Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Kyokushinkai Karate.

As fate would have it, Dr. Williams eventually became the inheritor of Saigo Ha Daito-Ryu in 1972 after his master, Pok Shen, was diagnosed with lung cancer. Since there were no other senior students studying under Master Shen, Dr. Williams was asked to become the successor.

In 1987, Dr. Williams set his first Guinness world record for breaking multiple blocks of ice with a single punch (11 inches thick, by 22 inches wide, by 42 inches long, and 10 stacks high).

Fast forward 23-years later and amazingly, this record still stands today (although his son Tim is the only other man to tie the record).

Throughout his years of travelling and living in the USA, Dr. Williams participated in several university courses such as psychology, philosophy, hypnotism, and eventually, he became a legally ordained Baptist minister. He was later awarded a Doctorate in Theology and eventually taught as a professor at Holland College and Success College, as well as, the Julian College of Arts & Sciences.

In 1989, Dr. Williams completed a course in Hypnotherapy and he began treating clients for various ailments. By 1995, Dr. Williams had completed his course in EFT (based on Chinese acupuncture), which he combined with hypnotism to treat sexual assault victims.

In 1996, Dr. Williams was awarded a Doctorate in Linguistics from the Cyber College out of Japan for his work teaching the English language to Japanese high school students over the internet.

By the year 2000, Dr. Williams was acknowledged by the Canadian Court System as an expert on the Eastern Woodland Indians and their treaty rights.

Currently, Dr. Williams is the site coordinator for Elite 1 MMA Productions.

Top 10 Comedians 2010 - World's Most Powerful funniest Comedians

Top 10 Comedians 2010, 10 Funniest Comedians picture, list of the funniest comedians photos, Top 10 Best Stand-Up Comedians, 10 best man comedians, World's Most Powerful Comedians
Late last month, comedian Alex Horne announced that he is trying to set a world record: to be, one day, the oldest man in the world. He says: "I have been attempting this death-defying feat non-stop for the last 31 years and seven months and although I'm now getting tired, I am still confident that I can keep going." So what is it about comedians and records? Here's my very own top 10.

Longest Edinburgh gig: Mark Watson

King of the marathon-comics, Mark Watson holds the record for the longest-ever comedy gig performed at the Edinburgh fringe festival (36 hours), though he never registered in the official world record books. So buoyed was he by his marathon that he proposed to his wife on stage at the end (Fortunately, she said yes).






Punslinger: Tim Vine

In 2004, Tim Vine broke the Guinness world record for the most jokes told in an hour (449). Admittedly many were along the lines of "So I met this gangster who pulls up the back of people's pants; it was Weggie Kray", but quite a feat nonetheless. Vine beat the previous record for 362, but in May 2005 Aussie comic Anthony Lehmann beat them both with 549.





Keeping at it part one: Ken Dodd

Dodd earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records in the 1960s for the world's longest ever joke-telling session (reportedly 1,500 jokes in three and a half hours – that's 7.14 jokes per minute), in Liverpool. It's difficult to track down the set's contents, but the likelihood is that he deployed one of his favourite lines: "You think you can get away, but you can't, I'll follow you home and I'll shout jokes through your letterbox."


Keeping at it part two: John Martin

Bootle-born comic John Martin smashed the world record for continuous joke-telling in 1993, with an ear-splitting 101 hours and 39 minutes of solid, uninterrupted gags. He has the certificate on his website to prove it; he's popular on cruise ships, apparently.



Keeping at it part three: Tommy Tiernan

In April 2009 the controversial Irish comedian completed 36 hours and 15 minutes of non-stop standup comedy, I Galway, setting the world record for the longest solo standup show. Nobody left. "Tell us a joke," heckled one audience member as he received his certificate. "How long have you got?" he replied.

Biggest solo audience: Lee Evans

In 2005, high-octane Lee Evans set the Guinness world record for a solo act when he performed to the biggest comedy audience (10,108) at the Manchester Evening News arena.

Gervais entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2006 for the most downloaded podcast – an average of 261,670 downloads per episode, right here on guardian.co.uk – for The Ricky Gervais Show. At the time, Gervais said: "Steve and Karl wanted to charge for the podcast. Just a pound, they said. I said no. We've had nearly 3m downloads so far."

Biggest duo: Newman and Baddiel

Comedy duo Rob Newman and David Baddiel played the largest ever standup gig at Wembley arena in 1993 to 12,000 people. This was trumped in March 2010 by the "biggest live standup show in history" in front of a 20,00-strong O2 arena crowd – a Great Ormond Street bash featuring Alan Carr, Jonathan Ross, Bill Bailey, David Mitchell, Michael McIntyre and Omid Djalili. On the night, Ross joked he was going to break the record for getting the most people to shout the word "cunt" at the same time.







Fastest-selling: Michael McIntyre:

With apparent ease, comedian Michael McIntyre pranced his way into the record books with the fastest-selling debut standup DVD (2008) Live and Laughing; the follow-up, Michael McIntyre: Hello Wembley in 2009, was the fastest-selling standup DVD ever.





Getting political: Mark Thomas

The mischief-making agit-comic entered the record books in 2006 when he attended the most number of political demonstrations in 24 hours (20).





Second Life: Jimmy Carr

Of all the world records you'd expect serial news-maker Jimmy Carr to break, this somehow wasn't one. In 2007 he became the first comedian to perform in cyberspace with his Second Life show. Virtual punters were able to heckle him and his avatar form could respond. It could have been worse: "Got a phonecall today to do a gig at a fire station. Went along. Turned out it was a bloody hoax."

Most successful sports franchise in film history - Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren get Guinness Records

Actors Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren receive an award from the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the most successful sports franchise in film history with their movie 'Rocky' during a news conference for the upcoming Lionsgate motion picture 'The Expendables' at Comic Con in San Diego

Sylvester Stallone and the cast of The Expendables brought their "manly" approach to Comic-Con in San Diego.
Steve Austin, Terry Crews, Randy Couture and Dolph Lundgren appeared alongside Stallone, the film's writer, director and star.

On being intorduced, Crews, a former America footballer, unbuttoned his shirt and jiggled his biceps and abdominal muscles to impress watching fans.

The former football star described the film as "the manliest movie ever made" in which the actors did their own stunts and the fight scenes were real.

Austin broke Stallone's neck during one scene, sending the star to the hospital for surgery.

Lundgren, who sent Stallone into intensive care when they made Rocky IV together, said he was thrilled to work with the filmmaker again and be part of such a big, tough cast.

"It was a great experience for me," he said, "one that only comes along once in your career."

Bruce Willis popped by unannounced to thank Stallone for casting him in a cameo role in the film. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger also makes an appearance in the movie.

Near the end of the presentation, a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records announced that Stallone and Lundgren would be honoured for creating the most successful sports film franchise ever - the Rocky movies.

Stallone said he had planned to retire after concluding his Rocky franchise with 2006's Rocky Balboa.

But after the success of that film, and Rambo, which followed, he said he "got greedy again" and wrote The Expendables, which opens next month.

Comic-Con continues until Sunday at the San Diego Convention Center.
