George, The Giant Dog
Giant George was a blue Great Dane previously recognized as the world’s tallest living dog, and the tallest dog ever by Guinness World Records.
His records were reported as he made an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in February 2010.
At home he slept in a queen-sized bed, and one of his hobbies was to ride around his family’s neighborhood in a golf cart.
When traveling to Chicago for his 2010 appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, George was given a row of three airline seats to himself.
He caused a turmoil with fellow passengers visiting him to take photos, “There were so many people coming to the front of the plane, the pilot ended up illuminating the ‘fasten seat-belt’ sign to get everyone to sit down” explained his owner, David.
George died on October 17, 2013.
