Guinness Announces World's Tallest Dog Ever -- Do YOU Have a Record-Setter?
Size does not matter. Just ask George. Guinness World Records has just declared him the Tallest Living Dog and the Tallest Dog Ever.
These new titles clearly will not stop this Great Dane (Greatest Dane?) from trying to be a lap dog.
"Great Danes are inherently lapdogs. He really thinks he's a tiny dog and wants to sit on your lap all the time. He wants to be right with you," owner David Nasser told AP.
The 245-pound, 4-year-old guy is 43 inches from paw to shoulder, and seven feet and three inches from head tail, according to Guinness stats.

And in case you were wondering about how his cute little paws compare to the mitts of his owner, David Nasser:
According to USA Today, Guinness is currently searching for pet owners who think they might have record-breaking animals in the following categories: Dog with Longest Ears, Smallest Dog (Length), Oldest Dog, Smallest Cat and Oldest Cat.
