But there is an even smaller dog on record, who was a Yorkie named Sylvia. She belonged to Arthur Marples of Blackburn, England. When Sylvia died in 1945, she was only 2 years old. At that time, she was 2.5 inches tall at the shoulder, and she weighed 4 ounces. I tried to find a picture of Sylvia, but I couldn't, so you will just have to use your imagination!
Biggest and Heaviest Dog:
In 1849 at Brecon Lodge, Glouchestershire, England, a greyhound named Bang jumped 30 feet when he was chasing a hare. While making the jump, Bang cleared a 4-foot, 6-inch gate and landed on a hard road, which injured his pastern bone.

Well, I hope you are properly impressed by all these fabulous world records set by dogs. I know I am! And I'm not just impressed, I'm also getting tired thinking about jumping and skateboarding and balancing things on my head. So maybe I'll go lie down now and see if I can set a world record for napping!
