World's TALLEST Puppy Pays a Visit


What weighs 215 pounds, drools and is in awe of cats? Brewster, the lovable Great Dane, dubbed the World's Tallest Puppy, who is on a national bus tour in America this month to raise $1 million to fund research to combat cancer in dogs and cats. Brewster's pet parent, Sandy Hall, parked their 36-foot tour bus in front of Arden's home in Oceanside, Calif. to pay a visit. Among Arden's Furry Fab Four, Zeki, her always-cool, turkey-motivated feline, proved to be the most non-plus when nose to nose with the towering Brewster. And Arden's ageless neighbor, 87-year-old Flo Frum, happily took the reins of this gentle giant of a dog.

Brewster and Hall are making this trek on behalf of the Morris Animal Foundation and in memory of Brewster's uncle, Gibson, who once held the title of World's Tallest Dog before dying of osteosarcoma. Tour sponsors are Petco and Blue Buffalo pet foods. Learn more by tuning into Sandy's guest appearance on Arden's Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio and by visiting
