So Sad — The Famous Skateboarding Bulldog Passed Away
This is so sad!
A 10-year-old bulldog who became famous for his skateboarding skills has died of heart problems.
According to reports, Tillman the Bulldog‘s owner Ron Davis said that his pet developed a heart muscle disease after experiencing an irregular heartbeat over the summer.
Tillman died Tuesday on the way to a pet hospital.
The skateboarding canine became an instant Internet celebrity in 2007 after his owner posted a YouTube video of him skating — which has racked up over one million views!
The pooch earned the Guinness World Record for fastest skateboarding dog, and was later featured in an iPhone commercial!
Davis explained he could never get Tillman to perform normal dog tricks, like rolling over, but the bulldog always showed an interest in skateboarding. Hey, that’s still rolling!
Losing a pet is never easy. Our hearts go out to Davis at this trying time.
