It’s not something all three year olds can boast, setting a Guiness Record, but Norman the French sheepdog can. The furry friend set a record on July 12th of riding a scooter–with no help–for thirty meters in under thirty seconds.

Reports show, Norman’s owner says he is a curious dog, always wanting to do the things the kids in the neighborhood are doing. Apparently, riding a scooter is one of them. He’s so good at it, he set the record in 20 seconds.

Norman not only set a record, but helped raised awareness and money for the cause Road Trip Home, helping to relocate animals to no-kill shelters.

If Norman looks familiar, he’s the face of Animal Planet’s “Who Let the Dogs” Out.” He has also made national television appearances such as “The Late Show With David Letterman.”

Norman will turn four years old on Sunday.
