With World Record Attempt, Reston Truly Going to the Dogs

Picture 1.jpgIf a local man has his way, Reston will become part of a world record:

At 3:30PM on Saturday, October 17, Mike Squier of Fairfax, VA will attempt to establish a new world’s record for “Most Dog Biscuits Eaten by a Human in 5 Minutes.”

The event will be held at Baron Cameron Dog Park in Reston, Virginia ( from 2:30PM to 4:00PM (Rain date: Saturday, October 24).
Squier will be accepting pledges to raise money for Save Our Siberians – Siberspace Rescue Fund (SOS-SRF,, a 501(C) 3 charitable organization that provides funding to Siberian Husky rescue groups faced with unusual or unexpected veterinary expenses for Huskies or Husky mixes in their care that are available for adoption. Pledges can be made in advance either by mail or through the SOS-SRF website.

Dog biscuits will be provided by Tomoko Kawasumi, owner and head canine chef of Organic Doggy Kitchen of Falls Church, Virginia (, who will also be giving out free samples to attendees who want to learn more about SOS-SRF while their dogs taste test healthy organic treats.

“To the best of our knowledge, there is no existing record for consumption of dog biscuits by a human being,” says Squier. “We will be attempting to establish one.”
Couldn't he just stop after eating one, then? If that's the case, be sure to bring a -- wait for it! -- doggy bag to take the extras home.

Thank you, thank you, we're here all week.


  1. I would be more impressed if he were planning to eat milk-bones.

  2. It's a very nice photograph of the man. Somebody should've warned him. If you live the life, you become one.

  3. Great publicity stunt to create awareness for the fund and make some dough for it, too.

  4. Well? Did he do it?
