Yesterday, at dogster’s, I found the article Guinness Announces World’s Tallest Dog Ever. Guinness is looking for record setting dogs and found George, a 4 year old Great Dane who now holds the record for the tallest living dog and the tallest dog ever. He weighs 245 pounds, is 43 inches from his sholder to his paw, and is a total of 7 feet 3 inches from nose to tail. That is one big dog!
Here is a size reference for his paws:
Look at those long doggie legs!
And he still thinks he is a lap dog!
