Standing worlds apart, 2 Guinness Wrold Record holders come together as Gibson, a harlequin Great Dane who is the world’s tallest dog, measuring an incredible 42.2 inches (107 centimeters) meets Boo Boo, a long haired Chihuahua — who stands merely 4 inches (10.16 centimeters) high — is smaller than Gibson’s head.
Both bred in America, the 2 celebrity canines united to celebrate Guinness World Records Day 2007 outside the White House in Washington D.C.
Lana Elswick, Boo Boo’s owner has bred Chihuahuas in Kentucky for 19 years and said that the precious pooch was only the size of a thumb when she was born, and had to be fed with an eye dropper every 2 hours before she could eventually nurse a bottle.
“She has the attitude of a big dog; she would let me know if anyone was around and she would try to guard me if she could.” said Lana.
Gibson and his owner Sandy Hall from Sacramento, California regularly visit children’s hospitals, also making him the world’s tallest therapy dog, reports the Daily Mail.
“He just puts a smile on people’s faces.” said Sandy. “In one split second, people forget their cares and worries.”
