A 3-year-old Great Dane in Sacramento, Calif., has been named the world's tallest dog by Guinness Book of World Records.
The award-winning dog, named Gibson, stands 7 feet tall when upright, according to the report. He was officially named the planet's tallest dog Tuesday by officials with Guinness who flew to California from England to see Gibson.
Gibson's owner, Sandy Hall, said she never dreamed Gibson would turn out to be the planet's tallest dog. She said the dog is a gift.
He is so beautiful. Gibson would just tower over my Dane. I think of my big guy as a gift too.
I wonder how many times she's heard "that's not a dog...it's a horse." Yeah, that's real funny, and original too.
