The World’s tallest dog is absolutely massive

Those are some damn big animals.

The 2017 Guinness Book of World Records was released on Wednesday and as you’d expect, it was full of all sorts of unusual achievements from people, things and animals around the globe.


Amongst the new entries announced on Wednesday, it was the latter that caught our eye, specifically the world’s tallest female dog and the world’s longest domestic cat.

Safe to say if you owned any of these, you’d nearly need to give them their own wing in your house.

Lizzy, a Great Dane from Florida, measures 96.41 cm (37.96 inches or just over three foot) and is so tall she has to eat her food from a bowl that sits on a chair as she cannot reach the floor.


No need to be too scared, however, as her owner Greg says she’s a gentle giant and very sociable – he puts this down to her spending much of her life surrounded by cats and two tiny pet terriers.

The world’s longest domestic cat, meanwhile, is Ludo the Maine Coon from Wakefield in South Yorkshire in the UK.


If you lay down on the floor beside Ludo there wouldn’t be much between you as he measures a whopping 118.33 cm (3 ft 10.59 in). He’s big alright…

Some of the other entries included the longest duration full-body burn, the youngest female with a full beard, the longest monster truck and a town in the US which now contains eight items (including the world’s largest golf tee and largest mailbox) that have made the Guinness Book of Records for being the largest in the world.
