It's hard to believe George was the runt of the litter when he was born on Nov. 17, 2005. Dave and Christie Nasser adopted him when he was about seven weeks old. Little did they know the lovable blue Great Dane would one day grow to be 43 inches tall from his paws to his shoulders.

Tipping the scale at about 245 pounds, he consumed about 110 pounds of food every month. In 2010, Guinness World Records named George the Tallest Dog Ever and World’s Tallest Dog.

George helped raise money for various animal charities during his life. On Oct. 17, 2013, the gentle giant passed away, just one month before his 8th birthday.

Giant George Service Day not only commemorates George's birthday, but also provides the "purrfect" opportunity to help a four-legged friend in need. In an online interview with Giant George Team member, Paul O'Rourke:

"Giant George Service Day is a chance for everyone to honor GG's spirit of giving. We ask that people use GG's birthday, 11/17/13, as a day to give of their time and/or money to an animal cause or organization that is important to their family. Every little effort to help can make a huge difference in an animal's life."

Thanks skpy - that sounds like an excellent service those dogs provide... somehow animals have a way of reaching people when other people are unable to get through. George certainly has made an impact on the lives of those around him.

Thanks Wendy - I'm glad I chose it too! I was so amazed when I saw George!!

Wonderful info. When I saw the word Service in the puzzle I thought it would be celebrating srevice dogs. There's a group (probably one of several) in Florida that call themselves K9s for Warriors. the work they do is Prenominal. They train service dogs for returning veterans. Not just physical injuries but for emotional and psychological relief - those we PTS are helped so much by having a dog who always has their back. Dogs are truly amazing!
George must have been a beautiful dog - runt of the litter, amazing!
