Watch the video of Tillman the English bulldog, the Guinness World Record holder for Fastest Dog on a Skateboard.
Tillman the English bulldog covered a 100-meter stretch of a parking lot in a time of 19.678 seconds! 100 meters is just a little longer than a football field (which measures 100 yards) and this record was recorded in 2009!
