This Ultra-quick Whippet Is Illegally Fast—No Really, I Swear

  This Ultra-quick Whippet Is Illegally Fast—No Really, I Swear Reas was the top dog at Fastest Dogs USA this year, surpassing the speed limits on your local neighborhood roads.Reas the whippet has illegal speed—as in laws prohibit him from running at full speed on most of this country's residential roads. The 25- and 30-mph speed limits are simply too slow.

The world's oldest dog, a Toy Fox Terrier named Pebbles, died Monday at her home in Taylors, South Carolina, surrounded by her family. Just five months away from her 23rd birthday, Pebbles died of natural causes.

"She spent her days enjoying country music and being loved," Pebbles' family said in a statement Tuesday. "Pebbles was not just another dog, she had her own way about her and her own personality."

Pebbles set the Guinness World Record for oldest living dog on May 17, when she was 22 years and 50 days old.

The four-pound pup was born on March 28, 2000, in Long Island, New York, her family said.

Pebbles moved to South Carolina in 2007 with her family. Over the course of her life, Pebbles had a total of 32 puppies in three different litters with her late pup-partner, a Toy Fox Terrier named Rocky, according to her family. Rocky died in 2017 at the age of 16.

In 2012, the veterinarian switched Pebbles to a cat food diet because it's higher in meat-based protein, Guinness World Records said in a press release. Sometimes she got to have ribs — like on her 22nd birthday.

In their Tuesday statement, her family called her a "once in a lifetime companion."

"There was never anyone who met Pebbles that didn't love her," they said. "She will be deeply missed."

The dog was left outside of a veterinary hospital at night, but the hospital was unable to care for her due to legal liability. Her former owners left a note attached citing a family emergency as the reason, and that they had no other option because they could no longer look after the canine. "I'm sorry," they wrote. "Due to a family emergency, we cannot keep it. We love her but unfortunately we don't want to dump her and her babies just on the street. My dad tried everything without success," read the note.
