Last month, 4-year old rescue dog, Wailin’ Phelan the Bearded Lass from Crownsville, Maryland beat out 116 other fast Fidos in the 2020 AKC Fast Course Ability Testing (CAT) Invitational, a fast-paced competition to crown the fastest dog in the country.

Phelan ran 100 yards in 6.346 seconds, or 32.3 miles per hour, making her speedier than even world record sprinter, Usain Bolt, who’s clocked in an impressive 28 miles per hour.

The slowest dog in the competition was a Pekingese named Buster who averaged 7.8 miles per hour. Buster may have taken last place in the Fast CAT Invitational, but he got there by being the fastest Peke in the country!
