?magical thing happened on Sunday: 576 border collies with smiling faces gathered together, apparently breaking the unofficial record for the most border collies in one place at one time.
The event, which was put on by the Border Collie Owners of South Australia, was held in Willaston Oval. The group confirmed on its Facebook page that 576 collies attended the event (though we have to admit, we see some Australian shepherds in there, but we’re not judging because they’re all good dogs).
According to the Australia outlet News.com, the pups raised over $6,000 for charity, and broke the previous unofficial record of 503 dogs, which TV veterinarian Dr. Katrina Warren organized in 2013.
The Guinness Book of World Records does not recognize breed-specific accomplishments, so sadly, the record will remain unofficial.
Whatever, just look at these dogs.
