Dogs coast down slope on record-breaking float

Bedecked in over 80,000 roses and holding the Guinness World Record at 113-feet, 8-inches long, the 2010 Tournament of Roses Parade float sponsored by Natural Balance Pet Foods was already a crowd pleaser.

Add to that a bevy of snowboarding bulldogs, and now you’ve got an absolute frenzy of excitement.

Tillman, likewise a Guiness World Records holder as the “World’s Fastest Skateboarding Dog,” left his wheels behind to snowboard down a 60-foot long, 16-foot high ramp installed on the float.

Natural Balance President Joey Herrick said in a statement, “We had a great time last year with the bulldogs skateboarding, and this snowboarding float is really incredible. I’m jealous, because those dogs can snowboard better than me.”

Joining Tillman on the slopes were Rose, Lyle, Niko, and Tank. —Joy Schmoll
