At an NBA-worthy 7 feet 6 inches standing on his hind legs, Freddy the Great Dane is the Guinness World Record holder. Four-year-old Freddy lives in England with his owner, Claire Stoneman, 41, a former model, and his sister, Fleur.
Freddy loves chicken and peanut butter and according to Ms. Stoneman he has munched his way through 23 sofas. She spends more than £12,500 ($14,800) a year on her pets.
She is currently single and her dogs are her children. She says she is content to get cuddles from the dogs and doesn’t have to wash dirty underpants.
However she might be ready for a relationship if she could find a man willing to put up with enormous dogs. She shares a king size bed with Freddy.
Guinness accepts dog world record holders on the basis of height rather than weight to avoid the possibility of over or under feeding them. Or, you know, stuffing them with weights. Some people will do anything for recognition.
