"When two hundred and forty-five pounds of dog gets a twinkle in his eyes, size matters. Boy, does size matter!!!"--From Giant George
I got the book from the library.
This is a humorous story of George, a Great Dane who won the title the World’s Tallest Dog-ever. George was the runt of his litter and Dave and Christie Nasser chose him because not only was he cute but they believed he we wouldn’t get very big. Surprising everyone, even the vet, George became almost five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds. Being such a playful dog he brought joy to the Nasser’s lives and showing them that even huge dogs has their fears. George is scared of water, dogs littler than him and, of being left alone. He even has a bladder that every dog and human would envy.
I enjoyed ready about Giant George. Dave Nassir did a fantastic job of writing this book about his beloved pet. He told the story of Giant George so well that the reader can actually see Giant George enjoying Christmas so much that takes down the tree by accident.
I gave Giant George four stars and a grade of B because this book has caused be to laugh quite often throughout the chapters. The reader is able to see the tremendous amount of love the Nassers have for their giant pooch just by the sacrifices they make for him at every turn. If you are a dog lover or have read the book A Dog’s Purpose and enjoyed it then I recommend Giant George: Life with the World’s Biggest Dog by Dave Nasser. This is one reader who can’t wait for the sequel.
