“Giant George” by Dave Nasser with Lynne Barrett-Lee, published by Grand Central Life & Style.

Category – Animals/Dogs

Dave and Christie Nasser wanted a dog, not just a dog but a big dog. Christie saw an ad for a Great Dane that seemed to be exactly what they wanted. So they adopted George, a seventeen pound Great Dane, and the runt of the litter.

George grew fast, incredibly fast. In fact, he grew so fast that he quickly outgrew the largest dog crate they could buy. Of course, that was not a problem for George; he just took up residence on their King size bed. This is a story of a family, one that started out with Dave, Christie, and George. It shows how they bonded together, sometimes under trying circumstances, especially for Dave. How they overcame two failed pregnancies but now have two wonderful children. It is fair to say that George, now Giant George, helped them get through these tough times. It is the story of how they were able to have Giant George entered into the Guinness Book of World Records, not only as the Worlds Biggest Dog – but the Worlds Biggest Dog EVER!!!!!!

A story that can be enjoyed by everyone, especially dog lovers but most of us will see a little of Giant George in out dogs. Giant George has gone on to celebrity status on the Oprah Winfrey Show and continues to appear on news programs, schools, hospitals, and anywhere else where he can provide a service.

Giant George has taken this all in stride and remains a lovable, drooling puppy almost five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds.
