A web search corroborates the story from a number of questionable sources. I'm still looking for the guinness book of world records source. It just looks like a meme that's be reposted a ton of times.

I have personally known old dogs that ate a vegan diet. I knew dogs that ate only coconuts and bananas, which is the only thing their owner ate. Sometimes I like to use reality as a source.
