The Big Dog

I received this via my e-mail recently.

"Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and who has a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds.

With "paws the size of softballs" (reports the Boston Herald), the three-year-old monster is far larger and heavier than his breed's standard 200 lb. Hercules owner Mr. Flynn says that Hercules weight is natural and not induced by a bizarre diet: "I fed him normal food and he just 'grew'...

and grew and grew and grew..."

I wonder if he sleeps on the bed.

That is one huge dog! Are you sure that wasn't Photoshop stuff?

I don't know if it's real or a doctored photo. What I know is that I wouldn't want a mutt that big...I have enough trouble with my 12 pound Celeste!
