Giant George

Giant George is a blue Great Dane currently recognised as the world’s tallest living dog, and the tallest dog ever by Guinness World Records.

George was born on November 17, 2005, and has been owned by David Nasser since he was 7 weeks old. A runt of the litter as a puppy, he now measures 43 inches (110 cm) high at the withers, and weighs 250 pounds (110 kg)about 114 kg, which is about 100 pounds (45 kg) more than an average Great Dane.

At home he sleeps in a queen-sized bed, and one of his hobbies is to ride around his family’s neighborhood in a golf cart.

These are actually some of the first Paperman drawings I’ve done… there’s even that one that I posted separately a while back… X’D

I… I’m not sure if I regret posting this yet. But yeah.

Shockingly enough, the giant thing wasn’t my idea this time. I fully blame Zuka for this. She encouraged me and I couldn’t say no of course. I was really hesitant to do it with them but I wanted GT fluff at the moment and they were the winners. derp. No story to them at this point really… just cute drawings.

… But it has escalated into more then just random pictures…

… Oh, so much more…

REST IN PEACE, GIANT GEORGE - “George, a Tucson Great Dane who was once crowned the Guinness World Records World’s Tallest Dog, died at age 7, a month before his eighth birthday…”

A Great Dane in Arizona named George was the previously recognized as the world’s tallest dog. Sadly, he passed away recently at the age of seven. Thanks to his large size, Giant George gained many followers and he was beloved because of his gentle nature. Read more from the Arizona Daily Star:

George, who measured 43 inches from foot to shoulder, reigned as the record holder from February 2010 to September 2012, when he was overtaken by Zeus, a 44-inch-tall Great Dane from Otsego, Mich.

George was the star of a popular book co-written by his owner, real estate agent Dave Nasser, and made the rounds on national talk shows. His Facebook page racked up nearly 200,000 likes.

“George passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones, one month before his eighth birthday,” a George handler wrote on his Facebook page.

“We appreciate the love and support you have given Giant George over the last several years. We look forward to honoring his spirit by continuing his charitable works.”

So recently we suddenly had a Paperman AU/crossover idea with Wizard of Oz and it’s sort of taken it’s own twist and such and I’m really liking it all so far and am already kind of planning to have it an original sort of thing on it’s own of a take on Oz with what we’ve developed so far on origins and such.

With this here I definitely took inspiration from the musical Wicked, (which I’ve always had a guilty pleasure for even though the story is so-so and all but dang the songs!) with the Witch of the West being with the scarecrow, where he was human before but she turned him into that to save him. Mobs were angry they were together and such.

I guess that’s the main thing still tied with the musical, because added on top of that he loses his memory of her as well. Scarecrow isn’t just looking for a brain in this, he’s looking for the mind he lost.

They are cute tragic babies and make me sad.
