In 2010, a Great Dane named George was listed by the Guinness World Records as the Tallest Dog Ever. He appeared on Oprah and even had his own global fan club.
He began life as the runt of the litter, but grew to almost five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds. While typically playful and boisterous, this big Great Dane was scared of water, scared of dogs a fraction of his size and, most of all, scared of being alone.
Giant George: Life with the World's Biggest Dog by David Nasser is the humorous and compelling story of how this exceptional puppy fit into owner's Dave and Christie Nasser's lives as they tried to have a baby and how he became a doggie superstar.

The dog must figure out how to work out the food from the curvy maze before they can eat it. It can also be used as a fun way to feed treats when your dog gets bored. The one-size Maze is available in 3 colors: black, beige and grey.

Biology professor and Animal Language Institute director Con Slobodchikoff has been studying the social behavior and language of animals for 40 years, with a focus on the prairie dog. Those of us who love dogs and cats should find his discoveries enlightening.
He shares his observations on animal communication and language in his recent book Chasing Doctor Dolittle: Learning the Language of Animals, covering a wide range of mammals, including dogs, bats, apes, monkeys, hippos, hyenas, foxes, deer, lizards, bees and the prairie dogs.
