Farewell Morgan The Tallest Female Dog
Last week Cathy and David suddenly lost their beautiful and beloved Great Dane, Morgan. One moment she was playing in the park, the next moment Cathy was cradling her in her arms. Many hearts are broken for Morgan’s family…mine included. We are all keeping her loved ones in our thoughts.
She was well-known in the Dane and dog community…because the statuesque Morgan was in fact a Guinness World Record Holder for being the Tallest Living Female Dog In The World!
She measured 38.6″ at her shoulders and weighed 207 lbs and she just turned 6 last month (FUN FACT: we shared a birthday).
Coincidentally, Morgan’s passing comes just over a month after Zeus, the Tallest Living Dog In The World left us. He was a few days shy of his sixth birthday. How incredible that these two gorgeous dogs met each other.
I was lucky to meet and photograph Morgan, her Yorkie sidekick Penny and family at Pet Valu in the spring. She was invited to tour Ontario as the “spokespet”, raising awareness for rescue during Pet Valu’s Pet Appreciation Month.
She signed many a massive pawtograph on her road trip!
Morgan’s momma says, “A Great Dane face is what captures your heart… their devotion to making you smile & laugh everyday holds it forever.”
I couldn’t agree more. Morgan, we will never forget how you made us smile.
Please head on over to Morgan’s Facebook page to leave some love for her family.
