The recent example of this is a Syrian national Mary Elias, who got The Guinness World Record for having 1,496 dog-related items and it is the largest collection recorded till date.
Her craziness for dogs can clearly be seen with her collection and she also revealed that the first two dog statues, which she received, were gifted to her by her friends. Later, it became a habit and then whenever she traveled to any place she used to buy dog related stuff.
Eventually this became her addiction and apart from statues she also started collecting items like pencil sharpners, keychains, mugs, jewellery, pillows, mini-vacuum cleaners, measurement tapes and much more
Regarding her love for dogs and the record, she said, “I have two beautiful dogs, mini Pomeranian, and black German shepherd. I love all dogs of different breeds in general, but my favourite ones are German shepherd and golden retriever.” “It is a great achievement when I think that out of seven billion people living on earth, I am the number one for the largest collection of dog-related items. I get such a great feeling that I cannot even explain,”.
