Double-Dutch Dogs Jump in Unison, Break World Records
It is what it looks like. The woman in the video, one Uchida Geinousha, is the owner of the Super Wan Wan Circus in Tsukuba City, Japan. She's also the new Guinness World Record holder for "handler of the most dogs skipping on a rope."
Congratulations to her and to Mayonnaise, the poodle with the dyed ears she's holding in her arms.
If you go to the Guinness YouTube page and troll though it at length, as we just did, you'll see that there are a number of "Meet the Record Breakers" videos available for your perusal: biggest Afro, longest nails, fastest wedding chapel, dog with the longest ears, and on and on. It's as if they know you won't be able to accomplish anything else today.
