Publisher's Summary

With his big blue eyes and soulful expression, George was the irresistible runt of the litter. 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 was 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, made them cry, and continues to make them incredibly happy.

Nothing much beyond a big cute dog

This is a simple, sweet story about a man who buys his fiancee a dog, which grows to be the biggest dog in the world. I love dogs, and enjoy family novels, but this story disappointed me. Why? There is very little plot. The narrator, Dave, falls in love and buys a dog and gets married, and Dave and his wife have babies while their dog grows into the biggest dog in the world. The dog does some cute things, but neither Dave, his wife, nor George (the dog) are real at all. They are all sweet and bland. My two favorite dog novels are The Art of Racing in the Rain, and One Good Dog. Both of those have engaging human stories with awesome dogs. The audiobooks have great readers, too. I don't understand how so many people could love Giant George. My wife, who loves dog stories, only thought this was okay. The one thing I will say is that the simplicity of this story makes it easy to listen to, once you get used to the fast pace of the reader. It adequately passes the time on a long car ride, but was never something that made me want to listen to more.
