Big dog

With "paws the size of softballs" (reports the Boston Herald), this three-year-old monster is far larger and heavier than his breed's standard 200lb. limit. Hercules owner Mr. Flynn says that Hercules weight is natural and not induced by a bizarre diet: "I fed him normal food and he just grew".... and grew...... and grew..... .
Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of World's Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and has a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds.

Remember what Angela says about feeding the two dogs inside us. Whichever one we feed is the one that grows.

Omigosh. Can you imagine having to clean up after him? And those things drool, too, and sling it just like St. Bernards do. Eeewww.

Thats one humangous dog! Makes you wonder what they feed it.

Do you think Mr. Flynn ride him?

I could only imagine the saliva produced by this guy.

Could you imagine a burgular breaking into your home with Hercules being there to greet him.

Happy recovery.

Sorry to burst all ytour bubbles, but the pic is a fraud, look around the net.

Plus, the pic is of a Neapolitan mastiff and Hercules is an English mastiff

All I can think of is picking the crap after that dog. My dog weigh 80 lbs and it's f*&cking disgusting.

Okay so check out these websites because that photo is enhanced. I have attached a photo of the "REAL" Hercules.

actually, the only thing the urban legend discounts is that Hercules is not the biggest dog according to Guiness and the fact that he 'might' be a different breed of mastiff then what is stated. They don't know for sure if the photo was enhanced.

Actually, Mora, they are sure now. The picture was doctored, the dog in it is actually much smaller, about waist height. This picture is a fake, and was used in an attempt to enter the largest dog contest, which if you go to myth blasters, you can find the real winners of.

If you are baking your own dog treats and mold is creating issues for you, the following information will hopefully help you tackle your problem. As a food scientist, understanding what made mold grow, and even more how to prevent it were principle parts of my job. Needless to say, when I started baking my dog treats and mold showed up, I was a bit frustrated Gluten Free
