"...the book is a well-plotted and compelling story, which takes us into the Nasser family dynamic: when Dave and Christie start trying for a baby, they encounter heartbreak. Startlingly honest and well-written, Giant George's story stands apart from the slew of other dog books on the shelves." Publishers Weekly (1/30/12)
"What seems like a gimmicky idea for a book-life with the world's tallest dog (with a Guinness Book of World Records certificate to prove it)-turns out to be an engaging, humorous read...But rather than the rambles of an obsessed owner, the book is a well-plotted and compelling story, which takes us into the Nasser family dynamic: when Dave and Christie start trying for a baby, they encounter heartbreak. Startlingly honest and well-written, Giant George's story stands apart from the slew of other dog books on the shelves." --Publisher's Weekly
"He may not be Rin Tin Tin, but George has one enormous claim to fame: at nearly five feet tall, seven feet long, and 245 pounds, this Great Dane holds the Guinness World Record not simply for Tallest Living Dog but Tallest Dog Ever. With Oprah appearances, 75,000 Facebook fans, and over 2.6 million hits on his YouTube videos, George is big on followers, too. And he's a sweetheart. Buy for all those dog fans-we're legion." --Library Journal
"A hilarious story, and well told. Much of the humor comes from the spectacle of a couple of innocents having their eyes opened. After you've read about [George's] exploits, the Nassers won't be the only people smitten with him. You will be, too -- although if you're lucky, no one will ever ask you to provide space for him in your home." --Mike Neill, The Reading Room

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF BIG DOGS BUT LIKE GEORGE, BIG DOGS ARE VERY LOVABLE. OUR BIG DOG WAS A LABRADOR MIX NAMED MILO AND WEIGHED ABOUT 125 #. HE AND GEORGE WOULD HAVE LIKED EACH OTHER! MILO DIED IN MAY 2008; WE'D HAD HIM SINCE JANUARY 1994. HE WAS THE BEST DOG--LOVED US, LOVED KIDS. UNLIKE GEORGE WHO HATES WATER, MILO WOULD STAND IN HIS WATER BUCKET EVERY CHANCE HE GOT. HE HAD HIS OWN KIDDIE POOL AND WOULD SNAP AT THE FISH PAINTED ON THE BOTTOM. WE HAD TO WATCH HIM NEAR OUR POND BECAUSE HE WOULD JUMP IN AND SWIM AROUND FOR QUITE AWHILE. HE LOVED TO CHASE OUR DUCKS BUT GRATEFULLY HE NEVER GOT NEAR ONE. THEY WERE SAFE WITH HIM THERE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, HE USED TO CHASE COYOTES AWAY FROM THE POND EVEN.
IF YOU LOVE DOGS, YOU WILL LOVE THE STORY OF GIANT GEORGE BY DAVE NASSAR.
Update: Giant George actually died recently, just shy of his 8th birthday. Those of us who have followed him on his website miss him almost as much as those who were blessed to share his life. Visit his web site. Read the book. These folks have done good stuff with and now in memory of GG.
that's how this book is written. George isn't just a dog, he's part of a very special and amazing family who despite some difficult strains of owning quite a large dog, they love and cherish him as part of their pack.
What a sweet and wonderful book this is about such an amazing dog.
