Norman the Scooter Dog happens to be this dog's stage name. In a whopping 20.77 seconds, Norman covered 30 m on a scooter. We better watch out for this one!
2. The Tallest Dog Ever.

And the record for the tallest dog goes to... Zeus! Standing tall, hovering 1.1 meter above the ground is this
Great Dane. Sure does give the other dogs a run for their money eh?
3. The Longest tongue

Measuring in a 4.5 inch long tongue is Puggy, the male
Pekingese who lives in Texas. Puggy's tongue is a bit much, so his owner has to make sure the dog's food is cut small enough as he chews with his tongue.
4. Fastest 5 Meters On Front Paws By A Dog

So we've definitely heard of handstands, but wait till you hear about Jiff! Covering 5 meters on its front legs in just about 7.76 seconds. I'm betting a few of us can't even walk that fast!
5. Most tennis balls held in the mouth

Setting the record all the way back in 2003, Augie the
golden retriever has fit 5 regular sized tennis balls in her mouth. She hasn't been defeated since!
6. Most flying discs caught

Almost all dogs can catch a Frisbee, but get a load of this dog! Rose, the retriever can catch up to seven flying discs thrown separately without dropping a single one of them.
7. Loudest bark

This retriever who goes by the name Charlie, let out the loudest yelp the world has ever heard! 113.1 decibels! That is about as loud as a jackhammer gets!
8. Smallest dog

If we've got the largest, then we've got the smallest too! Boo Boo, the
Chihuahua is 4 inches tall and weighs less than 2 pounds. Wonder how light footed she really is!

Most treats balanced on a dog's nose at one single go is 26. It is held by Monkey and handler Meghan Fraser. Quite the balancing act we think!
10. Balloon popping

Pop goes the weasel, it would seem like! Anastasia has popped 100 balloons in 44.49 seconds! That was the
Jack Russell Terrier's shoot to fame, she ended up starring in a bunch of commercials.
Who said the Guinness Book of World Records only covered humans? Looks like these pooches hold more records than some of us, or if I'm speaking for myself, ME!
