World's Tallest Dog Dies

0

Gibson, a Harlequin Great Dane from California, was dubbed the World's Tallest Dog by Guinness World Records in 2004. Thanks to our friend Michele commenting on a blog we did a few weeks ago (mentioning Gibson's world record), we are sad to report that Gibson has passed away. My heart goes out to Gibson's owner, Sandy Hall. Losing a pet is not easy.

Gibson, the "lovable giant" (measuring in at 42.2" tall), recently underwent surgery to amputate his front right leg to try to stop the spread of bone cancer. Sadly, it was discovered that the cancer spread to his spine. Sandy said he was having trouble using his legs in his final days. He passed away peacefully in the arms of his owner last Friday, August 7.

If you aren't familiar with Gibson's story and all the great things he did for people, check out his web page.
