In June 2012, fifty dogs participated, and three Guinness World Records were broken, including a new record of eighteen for the most dogs photographed on a surfboard. A greyhound which may be the 'fastest in the world' after it smashed a Sydney track record to win its first race start has been retired to stud because he can earn more money off the track. Shakey Jakey, still a year off his maximum potential racing speed, took an amazing 22-length lead to win Race 6 at Wentworth Park on April 6. Afterwards, an Australian syndicate offered owner David Pringle $700,000. Then he knocked back $1m - which may have been from Chinese investors - after consulting with his family and deciding to retire Shakey Jakey to stud.

Scooping this Guinness World Record title is Tubby the labrador of Pontnewydd, Torfaen, Wales.

If Tubby can do it, what's stopping us humans picking up bottles as we're out walking and bringing them home to recycle? At least we can also carry glass ones too.
