Peanut Butter the Dog performs a two-run explosion and the crowd goes wild

Must Read

Before a pair of streamers identified as JSR and PB took the stage at last weekend’s Summer Games Done Quick in Minneapolis, organizers announced they would restrict access to the arena after the race began to ensure the “most comfortable environment for PB.” They took such a step because PB, short for “Peanut Butter,” is a dog.

There’s nothing in the rules that says a dog can’t be a speed runner. Peanut Butter sets a new record for “winning a game” in Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseballplaying as the Seattle Mariners and defeating the Minnesota Twins in extra innings. The elegant Shiba Inu is an experienced gamer and first picked up the controller last July, on his third birthday, to play the SNES platformer. gyromite on a custom-made controller for him by his owner, speedrunning streamer JSR. The successful completion of PB of gyromite In 25 minutes and 29 seconds he set the table for his competitive debut at Awesome Games Done Quick this past January, where JSR streamed him beating the game, albeit in a slightly slower time of 26:24.

PB has played most of his games on a modified controller with the A and B buttons spread out across large pads. JSR has trained PB to press those buttons at specific times by tempting him with a bit of food motivation. During his SGDQ run, JSR had to get PB to press the swing button at just the right moment, which took some trial and error. He struck out a pitch and fell behind early, and while he finished eight minutes shy of his previous record, he gave the crowd a perfect moment when he hit a walk-off home run in the 12th inning, which can be found at the 32-minute mark in the video below:

“This took years of training,” JSR wrote in the description of a YouTube video from PB’s birthday last year. “I wanted to train him to do something special, when as a puppy I realized he was way smarter than most other dogs I’d seen. Since I’m a speedrunner (and PB literally got his name, you know, from getting a[personal best]in a speedrun) it just made sense to me.” Peanut Butter is a pristine sweetie and a serious thinker; to him, the question “Who’s a good dog?” is purely rhetorical. The next step in PB’s journey as a player is clear: let this dog play Elden Ring.
