I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the
size of this dog. I know he is a
Great Dane but still!

George, a four-year-old blue Great Dane from
Arizona (above with his owner Dave Nasser)
is certainly a contender for the
world's tallest dog.

The gentle giant, who measures 7ft 3ins (2.22 m)
from nose to tail, 42.625 inches (108 cm) at the
shoulder and weighs 245lbs (111 kg) could take
the title from the former record holder

Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane who
passed away from cancer last August.

Our Siouxsie (below) looks like a Chihuahua
compared to him! Even our
Archie The
Wolfhound, who was a giant, looks tiny!

EDIT 26.2.2010: George has now has been
officially recognised by Guinness World
Records as the tallest dog ever on record.
