As far as pooches go, he's about as close to perfect (ahem, paw-fect) as one can get.
But that's not why Jiff has landed a spot in the latest Guinness World Records book, which they're calling the most comprehensive collection of facts, feats and achievements ever compiled. (It's also Guinness World Records's 60th anniversary.)
The L.A.-based Pomeranian is actually the fastest dog on two paws, having reached 10 meters on his hind legs in 6.56 seconds and 5 meters on his front paws in 7.76 seconds. See him in action below!
When editors of the book first set eyes on the fluffy pup, they did a double take.
It's a plot plucked from a soap-opera script.
Displeased with her day-to-day life, Ai Hin concocts a plan to fake a pregnancy in a desperate plea for more attention – and treats! (Bwahahahaha.)
On Tuesday, experts at China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding revealed that they caught on to Ai Hin the panda's scheme – dun, dun, dun! – and canceled a live broadcast they were planning of the cub's birth, which would have been the world's first.
We have Steve Carell's next comedy vehicle all squared away.
Meet Patrick, the world's oldest living wombat, a virgin, who celebrates his 29th birthday this month.
Chatter about the chaste wombat, who lives at Australia's Ballarat Wildlife Park, ramped up this week when Australia.com's Facebook page posted a message in honor of Patrick's birthday on Sunday.
"Happy Birthday Patrick the Wombat! This 29-year-old is the world's oldest living wombat. Given that Patrick has never had children, or any partners in general, probably makes him the oldest living wombat virgin as well! Congrats mate!"
One time, our dogs only partially chewed up our shoes and didn't totally hog the bed at night. We were quite pleased.
But then we met Millie, and everything changed. Now we're not all that impressed. You see, Millie helps her owners carry groceries, door-to-door from the car to the house. (Watch the video above.)
We expected this from the cat, but we trusted you, Rooney.
You can play fetch with a dog. You can cuddle on the couch with a cat. But can either race through the air alongside you as you zoom through the streets of a picturesque Greek island?
The owner of the YouTube account waterskizone is helping the world realize the benefits of parrot ownership through this video of his macaw, Vito, racing him as he drives his scooter down a road in Paros, Greece. Though it was uploaded a year ago, the video is currently making the rounds online, grabbing the attention of anyone who can appreciate the novelty of a guy racing his pet parrot.
You've probably spent all morning breathlessly clicking VMA links about Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé and Jay Z and Blue Ivy, in anticipation of MORE Emmy links popping up tomorrow morning, BUT did any of those links contain a cat eating corn on the cob with her owner?
If there's one thing a cat knows how to do, it's improvise.
Take boxes for instance. Whenever the FedEx guy leaves one at the door, your cat sees another opportunity for a good day's sleep. So when this cat needed a pillow for its head, the feline simply fetched one from the fruit bowl.
When it comes to using produce as a pillow, however, we do believe this kitty could have chosen a little more wisely. A hand of bananas might be slightly more ergonomic.
