British Woman Over 100 Reveals Secret: Better To Have Lots Of Dogs Than Lots Of Children

Ada Daniel has lived at Codnor Park Care Home, in Codnor, Derbyshire, since 2015.

Derbyshire care home flooded with cards for resident's 108th birthday.

What is the secret to living long? Not having children and adopting lots of dogs, simple as that. This is claimed by Ada Daniel, an English grandmother who reached a truly astounding milestone this year, blowing out 108 candles. The 100-year-old, born on 1 June 1915, has witnessed some of the most critical events in history. Having survived numerous wars and two pandemics, she has seen the election of no fewer than 23 prime ministers and the coronation of five monarchs.

Ada Daniel, the English grandmother who blew out 108 candles this year

After living to the age of 103 in the cottage she shared with her husband Perry, who died at 73, she decided to move to a retirement home in Codnor Park. To mark the occasion, the facility organised a wonderful surprise in honour of its longest-serving guest, inviting people with a Facebook post to send Ada a birthday card. The response from users was enthusiastic, to say the least: the grandmother received almost 300 cards from her fans.

The secret to longevity is not to have children: Ada’s word

The celebrations did not end there, however. On her birthday, her carer and the nursing home staff organised a fabulous party with balloons, a buffet, banners and photos of the birthday girl. On this very occasion, Ada revealed her secret to those present.

I’m 108 years old – the key to a long life is to have dogs instead of kids

According to the woman, you don’t have to have children to live long. She has no family but often receives visits from her great-grandchildren. Ada said that she has always preferred dogs to people.

In the past, no fewer than six greyhounds have graced her life with affection and companionship, which, according to her testimony, have helped her to keep busy and not let go. To date, Ada Daniel is the 65th longest-living person in the UK, but thanks to her secret weapon, we bet she will spend many more birthdays on this planet.
