Giant George

I received a copy of Giant George by Dave Nasser with Lynne Barrett-Lee from NetGalley in exchanged for an honest review.

With his big blue eyes and soulful expression, George was an irresistible puppy. But Dave and Christie Nasser's "baby" ended up being almost five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds. Eager to play, and boisterous to the point of causing chaos, this big Great Dane is scared of water, scared of dogs a fraction of his size and, most of all, scared of being alone.

GIANT GEORGE is the charming story of how this precocious puppy won Dave and Christie's hearts and along the way became a doggie superstar. In 2010, George was named by Guinness World Records as the Tallest Dog in the World-ever. He appeared on Oprah, and even has his own global fan club. But to Dave and Christie, this extraordinary animal is still their beloved pet, the one who has made them laugh, helped them through difficult times, and continues to make them incredibly happy.

I really enjoyed this book.  I'm an animal lover so this was my kind of story.  I grew up with big dogs and have a spot in my heart for them.  I'm glad to see that couples who have large dogs before they have children will keep them after children come along.  Way too many times the child is choosen over the dog even after being with the cople for years.
