Who says you can't teach old dogs new, world-record-breaking tricks? In 1998, Olive Oyl, an 8-year-old Russian wolfhound, set a record for the most jump rope skips made by a dog. The jump rope made 63 revolutions, with Olive Oyl leaping each time, becoming a Guinness Book of World Records holder.

Owned by Alex and Paula Rothacker, of Illinois, Olive Oyl was taught the word "up" to lift her front feet. The back feet would then follow. "She loves jumping rope," says Alex Rothacker, who taught Olive a number of tricks.

Fame is no stranger to this leaping dog. Olive Oyle was also the former record holder for the highest freestyle jump by a dog, set in 1996 at the Chicagoland Family Pet Show, according to Guinness Book of Records.
