World's Tallest Dog

9

Last year we introduced you to Zeus, an awesomely large and handsome Great Dane from Otsego, Michigan. Zeus weighs 155 lbs, measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder, and currently holds the Guinness World Record for World’s Tallest Dog.

Now we’d like you to meet Freddy, another awesomely large and handsome Great Dane. He lives in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, England with his sister Fleur and their doting human Claire Stoneman. Freddy is only 18 months old and already weighs 154 lbs and measures 41 inches tall. And he’s still growing, which means he may overtake Zeus and claim the record.

When Freddy stands on his hind legs he stands a towering 7 feet 4 inches tall. Claire takes him on nighttime walks so that other dogs won’t be scared by his size.

‘If he wants to run after a dog I wouldn’t be able to stop him,’ said Miss Stoneman, who is 5ft 4in tall.

He also eats $125 worth of dog food each week - plus the occasional roast chicken or peanut butter on toast as a treat.

I’m interrupting my political blog to bring you all the world’s tallest dog – at least as far as anyone knows.

(AP) OTSEGO, Mich. - A Great Dane from Michigan is doggone tall.

The Guinness World Records 2013 book published Thursday recognizes Zeus of Otsego, Mich., as the world’s Tallest Dog.

The 3-year-old measures 44 inches from foot to shoulder.

Standing on his hind legs, Zeus stretches to 7-foot-4 and towers over his owner, Denise Doorlag. Zeus is just an inch taller than the previous record-holder, Giant George.

Zeus weighs 155 pounds and eats a 30-pound bag of food every two weeks.

I Love George, the 7 Foot Tall Great Dane. Unfortunately, That’s Why I’m in Tears Right Now.

Dave and Christie Nasser didn’t mind adopting the runt of the litter. They fell in love with the Great Dane as soon as they saw him. They just didn’t realize that he would grow up to break world records, their furniture and, eventually, our hearts.

When George passed away in his home in Tucson, Arizona, he was one night shy of being 8 years-old.

It’s hard to believe, but when George was born he was the runt of his litter. Needless to say, he hit a pretty crazy growth spurt.

As an adult, George weighed 245lbs.

In 2010, he was recognized by Guinness World Records as not only the World’s Tallest Dog, but also the Tallest Dog Ever.

George consumed more than 180lbs of food a month and he slept in his own, queen-sized bed.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce Giant George died last night. George passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones; one month before his eighth birthday.”

George weighed more than 100lbs more than the average Great Dane, he loved eating chicken and rice and then, of course, barking at the mailman.

Before passing away, George won over the attention of the globe, Guinness Book of World Records and Oprah. He lived a big life for a big dog.

RIP, George. We hope heaven has big enough clouds for you to sleep on.
