What A HUGE DOG! …or is it?

Here’s a very recent (and great) example of when you should use Snopes.com:
Hercules

Here’s the story that accompanied this picture:

Hercules was recently awarded the honorable distinction of Worlds Biggest Dog by Guinness World Records. Hercules is an English Mastiff and has a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds.

With “paws the size of softballs” (reports the Boston Herald), the 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. ….and grew.

But alas… it was too good to be true

Here’s the scoop about this urban legend from snopes.com

…Here’s another good example: Real or Fake?
