Rest in Peace Gibson

Gibson, the current record holder for the "World's Tallest Dog" sadly passed away this week. But lets reflect on what made him so notable. He was 43 inches at his shoulders, and over 7 feet tall when standing on his hind legs. At 180 pounds, he had quite an appetite too--eating 8-10 cups of kibble and over 2 pounds of wet food every day! That makes for one big dog!

Gibson suffered from bone cancer, and had to have one of his front legs amputated earlier this year. His people have set up a memorial fund for Gibson that is intended to raise awareness of canine cancer.

  1. apparently Gibson had a very good life, too bad about the amputation at the end :-((. He has lots of offspring to be proud of !!
