George the Great Dane is 7ft long,

 - weighs 18 stone and is the world's biggest dog... but he's terrified of chihuahuas!

    The first time we saw George, our beloved Great Dane, he was no more than a tiny, cowering ball of fuzzy fur. 
As my wife Christie opened the door of the crate he’d travelled in, he teetered to a standing position and looked out at us, moving his head slowly from side to side, taking in the wonder of it all. 

Finally, as if weighing us up and deciding we were acceptable, he tentatively pushed his little nose forward and gave Christie her first lick.

Though it didn’t really register, George’s paws were comically large even then. But all we saw was this cute puppy. 
We certainly never dreamed he would one day become the biggest dog in the world, standing nearly 4ft high at the shoulder, 7ft long and weighing nearly 18 stone. Right now, he just looked bewildered.
He came into our lives in January 2006, just a few months after we had married and set up home in Arizona. We both had busy jobs, Christie selling medical equipment while I was a property developer, but she had always planned that, once she had a house of her own, she would also have a dog. 

If the pool was his most-hated place, his favourite was our bedroom. Eventually he outgrew the single mattress we placed there for him and preferred instead the comfort of our king-sized bed — sprawling between us like some over-indulged prince while we spent half the night clinging onto the edges.

None of this, of course, means anything to George. He still spends his days doing what he has always liked best: eating, playing and sleeping. 
Our cherished pet may have become a global celebrity — but really, he’s just one of the family.
