When I was younger, the Guinness Book of World Records fascinated me. I don’t know why, I never had any designs to actually BE in the book, I guess it was just fun to read about the crazy stuff people would do to get their name in the record book. They used to be pretty straightforward, the biggest, the smallest the fastest, the longest, the oldest, etc. There are so many different records out there.
In the news recently was a lot of press about the largest pit bull, Hulk and the litter of puppies he recently sired. We are not fans of breeding to extremes which may happen if folks have in mind attaining one of these records. Let’s hope that’s not the case, that these are naturally occuring records being set by animals.
As far as dogs go, the records on the current Guinness website are the usual ones, largest, smallest, fastest. But there are also some unusual records:

And my personal favorite:

Fastest 100 meters with a can balanced on head. This interesting feat is performed by Sweet Pea who you may have seen before. If not – check this out:


If your dog could set a record, what would it be?

  3. YAY for Sweet Pea, that’s ART! My mom loved the Guinness Books and every Christmas she got a new one with the newest records… she always wanted an entry, but she sadly had no idea what she could do better (or worse) than other people. She decided to be the world record holder with holding her breath … after two minutes she swooned…what a crazy bat…the world record is around 20 or 21 minutes LOL

  6. As a clerk in the high school library, I can tell you that there was always a waiting list for our copies of the Guinness Book of World Records! Pierre would set the world record for launching out the back door after squirrels Bentley would set the record for most belly rubs mooched! Have a great holiday. ☺

  8. I saw one on TV today…most catches of a ball by a dog, (or something like that), 14 in a row by a beagle. Yes, he caught the ball in his paws! But no, I don’t ever see Cricket doing that, not even once. 🙂

  9. Incredible! These creatures continue to amaze and dazzle us with all sorts of skill sets. Hope you and your pack are hanging in there. I’ve been away and more than slightly behind in keeping up with reading. We’re thinking of you and sending loads of pawsitive puppy energy. 😉
