This is a picture of my pure bread Cocker Spaniel not long after I brought him home. They are said to be hyper but mine isn't. He is very possessive though. My Andy Rooney is just a big baby. I named him after the late Andy Rooney because he had such bushy eyebrows when we first brought him home. I consider my big boy as a gift from God.
From the Guinness book of world records of 1989 the greatest weight ever recorded for a dog was an English Mastiff weighing 343 pounds. The dog stood 35 inches at the shoulder and was 8.25 feet from the tip of its nose to the tip of its tail. You could say he was the size of a small donkey.
It is estimated there are between 700 million and one billion domestic dogs.
