Who hasn't seen a bulldog riding a skateboard? You may remember Tillman the bulldog who rode a skateboard in the 2007 iPhone commercial, or Darla, the Southern California bulldog who rides a skateboard every day. A quick YouTube search turns up Dozer and Tyson and several other dogs performing some impressive skateboard stunts.
But Norman, a three-year-old French sheepdog, is something else altogether. He rides a standing scooter and even rides a bicycle and surfboard. Watch the video to see Norman earn his place in the Guinness world record book. The event held on July 12, 2013, during which Norman set the world record, shows Norman completing a 30-meter ride in under 30 seconds.
Even better, Norman donated the proceeds to Road Trip Home, a relocation group that transports rescued dogs from high-kill shelters to no-kill shelters. Road Trip Home Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer organization in Georgia, where 250,000 shelter animals are euthanized every year. It's easy to see why Scooter chose Road Trip Home Animal Rescue as his charity of choice for his world record event.
