A Syrian woman named Mary Elias has won the Guinness World Record title for the largest collection of dog-related items.
Elias has collected 1,496 dog-related items. Her first item in collection was a ceramic grey hunting dog which she bought in 1992 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
“I love all dogs of different breeds in general, but my favorite ones are German shepherd and golden retriever," Mary said, explaining that “dogs are great pets, who fill our lives with joy, happiness and comfort nevertheless the unconditional love.”
Apart from statues, Mary has pillows, keychains, mugs and jewellery besides dog-shaped items such as a mini vacuum cleaner, tape dispenser, measurement tape and pencil sharpeners.
