13 dogs skip their way into world record book

275x250.jpg We've often wondered how some people come up with the idea to set a bizarre world record -- like this one for the most dogs skipping on the same rope.

Well according to the dog handler at Uchida Geinousha's 'Super Wan Wan Circus' in Japan this came about by accident when a curious poodle joined in with some human skippers.

"One day Mayonnaise, an incredibly curious poodle, started to try and skip with us.  She clearly really enjoyed it and we decided to get the other dogs involved.  It’s become part of their playtime," he said.
 
To make sure all 13 dogs have full credit for their achievement, they are (from left to right) Leo, Doremi, Button, Koume, Aya, Kimchi, Nami, Mayonnaise, Ann, Sumire, Kurobe and Akebi… what do you mean that's only twelve, oops.
As you may have noticed we're having something of a Guinness World Records fest on Newslite today -- to mark the release of the 2012 edition of the wonderfully bizarre records book.
