This Beagle Just Broke A World Record, And We’re So Proud Of Her
Some pups break the rules, but this one breaks records.
That's the unlikely story from Itō, a Japanese city located on the eastern shore of the Izu Peninsula, where Purin, a 11-year-old "Super Beagle," has added a third Guinness World Record (a.k.a. three more than this writer will ever tally) to her already impressive resume.
In a video posted to YouTube earlier this month, the talented pooch teams with human Makoto Kumagai to jump a single rope 58 times in one minute — thereby smashing the previous best of 51, which the duo set late last year.

Purin, however, is no one-trick pony.
For an encore, the adorable doggo clambered atop an inflatable Swiss ball, rolling it forward 10 meters in 11.9 seconds. Because she's quite literally a dogged competitor, Purin subsequently improved on that feat, cutting the time down to 10.39 seconds.
While there's no word on what records she'll take aim at next, her skills also include riding a skateboard.
In an update posted on January 6th, the gifted quadruped took to Facebook to thank her adoring fans (10,000+ and counting!).
