Calgary dog breaks own balloon-popping record




Calgary dog Toby the whippet holds world record for fastest time to pop 100 balloons with time of 28.22 seconds.

The 9 year old purebred first broke the record in March at the Shawnessy YMCA with a time of 36.25 seconds, beating the previous record holder — Twinkle the Jack Russell terrier — by 2.83 seconds.

But this he burst 100 balloons in 28.22 seconds — trouncing his old record by 20 per cent.

Toby’s owner, Christie Springs said  they first got a glimpse of Toby’s balloon-popping prowess on a walk when they discovered a balloon caught on a frost fence.
