Love our pets

SPITFIRE THE WHIPPET MAY BE THE WORLD’S GREATEST ATHLETE. AT THE VERY LEAST, THE WORLD’S GREATEST ON FOUR LEGS.

Spitfire’s natural gifts may make him fast, but its his love of the activity that’s the true motivator.

Each of us likely knows one of those parents who longs for, or has, a champion athlete child — one who racks up the trophies and titles and medals and perhaps has a wall dedicated to his or her feats in the house.

Spitfire’s family may need to build him a room.

This whippet is a super-champion, who breaks world records like dishes at a Greek wedding. Case in point: this video below, a 31-foot long jump that, you guessed it, set the world record for longest-ever jump by a dog.

One record is hardly enough for this world-class athlete, though. Spitfire is also the world record-holder in speed retrieval.

And while we’re showing him off like he’s ours, check out this 8-foot vertical!

In an interview with Outside Online earlier this year, Spitfire’s trainer, Kristi Baird explained what makes a legendary dog different from a regular dog.

“Any dog can do this,” Baird said. What makes the great ones, though? “Dogs that have drive. Dogs that love to chase things. And dogs that love the water — I mean, can’t stay out of mud puddles.”

Mud puddles?! Well, that means that on top of being a world champion, Spitfire’s also just a regular dog – which, amazing feats and athletic prowess notwithstanding – is his best quality, if you ask us.
