And her owner is Burt Ward, who played Robin in the 1960s hit TV series "Batman."

Tara is Ward's favorite and he credits her long life to a dog food he makes himself called Gentle Giants. It is low-fat, non-greasy canine chow he sells commercially and is also the name of the rescue and adoption refuge he runs on his property.

Feeding all his animals costs $14,000 a month  which covers about 600 pounds of food.
