Ball-catching dog among the newest world records

The latest edition of the Guinness World Records is launched with Linsey Lindberg, holder of a global title for the most telephone directories torn up in one minute.

One of the highlights from the new book is a dog in Japan (from 1m 07s) who holds the record for most balls caught with its paws in one minute.

Also included are a Chinese duo who claimed the title for tallest married couple (423 centimetres); the biggest cowboy boot sculpture (10.4 metres); the longest ballpoint pen (5.5 metres); and the largest horn spread on a steer (293.8cm).
