(WDAY TV) -- A sad update to a story we brought you three years ago. A very large, Cass County dog that gained international fame has died.

Boomer the dog died, one day after being diagnosed with bone cancer. The 6-year old Newfoundland could drink from the kitchen faucet with all 4-paws on the floor.

In 2009, Boomer's owner tried to get the 180 pound, 7-foot-long pet recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's tallest dog.

He missed the minimum height requirement by four inches.
