Anything can be a world record – at least according to Guinness.
The venerable keeper of lists of people – and animals – doing all kinds of obscure things counts the largest gathering of dogs wearing bandanas as 764, which occurred on May 17, 2015 in Canberra, Australia by RSPCA ACT. That record-breaking day also raised AU $31,000 for the non-profit agency.
But on Saturday, the Calgary Humane Society says it crushed that record by gathering together 813 dogs wearing bandanas.
“We have unofficially beat the World Record! A huge thank you to everyone who came out,” the Alberta-based organization said after its annual Dog Jog fundraising event.
And then more dogs arrived.
And then more. Until finally. It was official. (Well, still, to be approved by Guinness, but we doubt there will be a disqualification.)
