A Japanese floppy-eared beagle with paw-feet yoga skills has set the world record for the “fastest 10 meters traveled on a ball by a dog.”
Purin (the Japanese term for “pudding”), a ten-year-old female, nimbly maneuvered an inflatable training fit ball over a distance of 10 meters in 11.9 seconds to set a new world record.
Purin, who lives in Tokyo with her owner Makoto Kumagai, set a new record for balance on National Puppy Day on March 23.
Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday remarked, “Purin is a superstar in her own right today, having attained double-record status with her latest exploits.”
“Justin Bieber is the youngest musician to have five number-one records in the United States, but can he run 10 meters on a Swiss ball?”
Purin’s achievement was not her first journey into world record territory; in September of last year, the pup made headlines across the world when she set a global record for the most balls grabbed by a dog with paws in one minute.
Her new World Record of 14 small soccer balls caught beat out her previous World Record of 11 from the year before. Her Japanese owner claims that they practice for 15 minutes every day at their home. Her owner doesn’t want her to become bored, so she doesn’t practice for too long.
Purin also set a new record for the most rope skips in a minute with her human, with 58! Purin can be found on Facebook if you want to keep up with her.
With the assistance of her owner, the multi-talented beagle can also skateboard and walk on two legs.
