WASHINGTON (TIP): A talented pooch in the US holds two wacky Guinness World Records titles: the fastest 100m with a can balanced on the head by a dog and the most steps walked down by a dog while balancing a glass of water.
Sweet Pea – an Australian Shepherd and Border collie cross – has incredible balancing skills, and travelled 100m with a can skilfully balanced on top of her head, crossing the finish line in just 2 minutes 55 seconds.
The canine’s feat has secured her a Guinness World Records title for the fastest 100m with a can balanced on the head by a dog.
The successful record attempt took place in 2008, at the college of Lake County, Grayslake, Illinois, with Sweet Pea’s owner, Alex Rothaker beckoning his pet to the finish line, Guinness World Records has said.
Sweet Pea also has the record for the most steps walked down by a dog facing forward while balancing a glass of water, which she achieved with 10 perfectly placed steps. She can also walk up 10 steps with a glass of water on her head.
