Giant dog launches Fringe play
The world's tallest female dog has helped launch a play in which she has a big interest at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Great Dane Cooper's owner Wendy Peace is the star of one woman show Listen, The River.
And one of the characters brought to life by Ms Peace is based on the enormous hound which stands 36.5 inches from ground to shoulder.
The play, by New York group Rising Solo, tells the story of Turbo the cat and his longing for the sounds of the river after he is forced to leave his rural home for New York City.
Because the show deals with the rehoming of pets, the production is being staged in partnership with the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home.
A proportion of ticket sales will benefit the rescue home where Yorkshire Terrier Glen - pictured with Cooper - is currently waiting adoption.
