Allow us to introduce you to Otto.

Otto is a bulldog who has some serious skills. Not content with mastering the usual ‘sit’ and ‘stay’ like his canine peers, Otto considers himself more of an adventurer. 

He broke a Guinness World Record yesterday when he skateboarded through the legs of 30 people in Peru.

Otto is not the only one trying to break a record today. Guinness World Records Day celebrates a 12 year anniversary today. Some of the records attempted include the fastest 100m run on all fours and the biggest gathering of people dressed as penguins. 

While these both sound highly entertaining, we are pretty certain that Otto’s video is probably the most adorable we have seen in a while.
