Dogs in Guinness Book of World Records
Not just humans get in the Guinness Book of World Records! Here are some interesting dog records:
- Tallest Living Dog – Gibson from Grass Valley California, and he is 42.2 inches tall. He’s a Harlequin Great Dane.
- Fastest Car Window Opened by a Dog – (why is this even a dog category? this is strange.) Striker from Quebec City, Canada can open a non-electric car window in 11.34 seconds.
- Longest Time on Doggy Death Row – (another strange category for dogs!) Word (yes, that was his name), was “incarcerated” at the Seattle Animal Control Shelter for 8 years.
- Most tennis balls held in the mouth by a dog – Augie from Dallas, TX can hold 5 tennis balls in his mouth.
At least the tennis ball record makes sense for a dog. The others are kind of weird, aren’t they?
