Japanese Dog Sets A Balls World Record


When a human being wants to break a world record, they typically have to train hard. But when a dog wants to do it? That’s a whole new ball game. Purin, a mixed breed dog living in Sakura, Japan with her owner Makoto Kumagai, is lucky in that the record she broke is something she truly enjoys doing. When Kumagai first got the dog, he noticed she had a knack for catching balls a little differently than other canines – in her paws, not her mouth. The pair worked together until she was a lean, mean, ball-catching machine and then contacted the Guinness Book to document her feat. She caught 14 balls in a minute to set the world record.
