Morning Start: The tallest dog ever was measured at 1.118 m

Your morning start for Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021

Good morning and happy Thursday! Today’s high is 27 C, but temperatures are expected to cool in the next coming days.

Fun fact: The tallest dog ever was measured at 1.118 m

On Oct. 4, 2011, a Great Dane named Zeus was measured at 1.118 m (44 in.) tall, earning him the Guinness World Record of the tallest dog ever. When standing, he reached a height of 7 ft. 4 in. (2.23 m) tall.

According to Guinness World Records, Zeus weighed 155 lb. (70.30 kg) and ate approximately 30 lb. (13.6 kg) of food every two weeks. His height even gave him the ability to drink water straight from the tap.

Sadly, Zeus died at the age of five in September 2014.

Kelowna restaurant Frankie We Salute You was recently profiled by the account, alleging the restaurant supports “segregation.”
