New world record


News flash! A new world record was set today for the furthest distance crawled by a female black labrador in the 30-35kg category. Ruby, from Sydney, commando crawled using only her front paws for 63 metres, smashing the record. Her owner looked on in astonishment as she propelled herself with amazing speed, only missing the record for the 50 metre dash by a couple of seconds. Although slightly dew and slope assisted, the record counts. A fantastic effort – well done Ruby!

    We call this the Big Stretch Dog-well done Ruby-and hopefully besides the medal a well-earned treat (or two or three or . . . ) What is next fair one? a trip to Disneyland? 🙂

    Well done, Ruby! I hope your fur on the belly is still in best condition :o)

      Oh yes – it’s actually very wirey and needs a good scratch just like the rest of me!

    WOW rubes, you are the queen of crawling – I’ve never tried before, but perhaps I should give it a go

      Yes – am easy way to get around and quite stealth like. Amzing what you can reach with a good stretch without having to get up!
