A very good dog named Finley is now a Guinness World Record holder – for holding tennis balls in its mouth!

The 6-year-old golden retriever from Canandaigua, NY, has been Instagram-famous since 2018 for being able to fit a record-breaking six tennis balls in its mouth. However, due to Guinness’ lengthy application process, the pooch didn’t receive the official record holder title until this week.

Finley and his family celebrated with a social distancing ‘pawty’, that included some of his dearest friends.

“He got pretty excited when all of our neighbors were outside his front yard,” his human sister Erin Molloy said. “Obviously, he’s staying humble, but I think he’s pretty pumped.”

In 2018, Molloy created an Instagram account in the hopes of sharing Finley’s funny talent with the world (his username is @finnyboymolloy). It now has more than 36,000 followers.

That’s not too shabby, Finley.
