Interviews & Essays

TALLEST DOG - 'ZEUS'

Zeus is the Guinness World Records record holder for the "Tallest Dog Ever" measuring in at 3 feet 8 inches tall. A three year old Great Dane, Zeus weights about 155 pounds and has a very loving and laid back personality. In the below interview with Zeus's owners they give us insight into life with this beloved, colossal pooch!
Fun Fact - Great Danes usually reach a height of 30-34 inches

Where did the name Zeus come from?
We wanted a "big" name to go with a big dog.

What are some of the advantages/disadvantages of owning a dog of this size?
Advantages: He's a real conversation starter. People love to see him and be around him and he's an awesome dog. Disadvantages: It costs more to take care of him (food, medicines). In order to transport him we had to get a bigger car so we bought a van. Also, if he steps on your foot- he leaves bruises!

How does the dog get along with the other animals (including the cat in your house)?
He likes other animals and never growls or bites. He likes to give our cats kisses but they don't really appreciate that.

What is the relationship of the dog with your family members/children?
He loves everyone in the family especially if he can snuggle on the bed or sit on our laps.

How much food does the dog consume a week?
He eats between 10-12 cups per day which is about one 30 lb bag a week.

Describe a typical day for the dog. Does he enjoy physical activity mostly? Does he sleep all day?
He tends to be pretty lazy around the house but loves to go for walks and run around outside with our other dog

What is the general reaction when onlookers see your dog's size?
We always hear comments like "is that a dog or a horse" Where's his saddle?" "Oh my god, I've never seen a dog that big."

Are there any funny anecdotes you might be able to add?
We were at a parade and a small dog came up to Zeus and was nose to nose with him. The little dog suddenly barked and snapped at Zeus. Zeus ran around behind me and hid from the littler dog. It was very funny. The crowd thought it was hilarious too. This just demonstrates Zeus's sweet personality.

    Great Book! We have given this to our son as a Christmas present for 10years now and he (as well as the rest of the family) still loves it. It gets passed around for days and makes great conversation in the car. His college friends loved it too!

    There is so many fun records in it, something for everyone to enjoy reading about.

    Entertaining

    Fun book filled with crazy records and photos. These GWR books get well loved and I usually need to tape the binding. (Not suitable for a child that would immitate dangerous stunts.)

    Disappointing

    I wanted this to be the perfect gift for an 11 y.o. old boy since I had enjoyed the original versions when I was a kid. And yes its big and colorful, but if you stop to actually read some of the awards/achievements they become so ridiculous! As if the Guiness folks needed to make more money so they "watered down" the soup. Really silly stuff in there now...the absence of any intellect. Very disappointing.
