Norman, the scooter dog, sets new World Record!

Posted: Updated:
MARIETTA, Ga. -

UPDATE: It's official! Norman, the scooter dog, is now an official Guinness World Record holder! Watch his winning moment on the video player above!

----------------------

We've all seen dogs doing tricks from roll-over to playing dead, but have you ever seen a dog ride a scooter?  

Norman, the French sheepdog, is taking his scooter and trying for a Guinness world record.  

At 70 pounds and with a full coat of fur, you might not think the 3-year-old sheepdog would be too athletic.  But, show him some wheels and he'll prove you wrong.

It all started when his owner, Karen Cobb, got an idea to help make the normally shy dog more comfortable.

"We wanted to introduce him to all new objects, so we just happen to have the kid's scooter in the backyard and thought it would be fun to put him on there and get him used to it, and he loved it," Cobb said.

He took off from there. And, now he's on his way to set the world record in Marietta at All Tournament Players Park Friday morning. Go, Norman!

    The notion of 'Keeping up with the Jones' is not new, but there is a new pressure coming at you. Peer pressure - whether you're 13 or 33 - is a powerful thing. Now throw in social media and you have what an Atlanta counselor calls 'Keeping up with the Jones' on steroids. And if you're not careful that can get costly.
