Zoinks! Like, that’s a giant dog!

April 14, 2006

Marmaduke and Scooby-Doo might be the most well-known, but in the pantheon of famous Great Danes, Gibson (pictured R.) certainly stands the tallest.

At just over 3 1/2 feet tall at shoulder height, Gibson is the tallest dog in the world, according to Guinness World Records. On his hind legs, this giant harlequin Great Dane towers over 7 feet tall!

Gibson, 4, lives in the small northern California town of Grass Valley and loves pizza and linguine with clam sauce, according to his owner Sandy Hall. (At 175 pounds, he has a big appetite.) He loves basketball and has been known to say “I love you” from time to time.

“Perhaps he just might be able to make it in the NBA one of these days,” says Orange Bear.

“I don’t see why not,” responds Mr. Crumpet.
