As far as pooches go, he's about as close to perfect (ahem, paw-fect) as one can get.
But that's not why Jiff has landed a spot in the latest Guinness World Records book, which they're calling the most comprehensive collection of facts, feats and achievements ever compiled. (It's also Guinness World Records's 60th anniversary.)
The L.A.-based Pomeranian is actually the fastest dog on two paws, having reached 10 meters on his hind legs in 6.56 seconds and 5 meters on his front paws in 7.76 seconds. See him in action below!
When editors of the book first set eyes on the fluffy pup, they did a double take.

Blind dates are always nerve-wracking, even for animals. Carla Zanoni of New York City was worried that her four-year-old pit bull terrier, Getrude, would reject her newly adopted kitten named Earnestine.
Instead, the pets surprised Zanoni by quickly becoming enamored with one another. The video above shows the adorable behavior that has become normal for this animal odd couple. Apparently, Earnestine and Gertrude often spend their days cuddling together and exchanging sweet, interspecies kisses.

The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).

If there's one thing you remember from today, it should be this: there is nothing cuter than a set of panda triplets.
There is also nothing more rare. Born on July 29 at Guangzhou's Chimelong Safari Park in China, these 16-day-old siblings are the world's first surviving panda triplets, according to The Guardian.
The birth of the panda babies – who are being cared for by their mother Juxiao and a round-the-clock team of zoo nannies – is extra-special since the animals have such a low reproductive rate.

We love babies. We love puppies. Put the two together, and we're talking about a level of perfection we once reserved solely for conversations about Ryan Gosling and well-dressed kangaroos.

Allowing consumers to make bold new fashion statements such as "I was mauled by a wild tiger," the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan, has elected to raise money by auctioning off Zoo Jeans, which have been stylishly ripped by its own four-legged residents.
