PostSubject: Dog fight ensues over tallest dog record   Wed Nov 18, 2009 5:50 pm

My dog is better than yours? Well, sort of.



The owners of George told the Arizona Daily Star he's taller than Titan, the Great Dane named the tallest dog last week by Guinness World Records. According to the story, Dave Nasser said jokingly:

"George feels he needs vindication." Nasser and friends Paul O'Rourke and Dana Murray, who are campaigning to get George into the record book, are taking responsibility for not completing George's application in time to take down Titan.


In order to get the most accurate (and flattering) measurement possible, the team took longer to get a veterinarian to verify that George is 43 inches tall at the shoulder, rather than 42 inches flat or 42.625 inches, as previous measurements found. Titan, owned by Diana Taylor of San Diego, is 42.25 inches tall.


"It's just bad timing. I can't say anything bad about Guinness," said Nasser. "We sent the paperwork to them Tuesday and they got it Thursday. The winner had a plaque in hand Thursday. … we were just late to the game."
