Pooch gets into Guinness World Records for biggest ears

Tuesday, 6th September 2011

One pooch from Colorado who used to trip over his ears while playing with dog toys has received some special recognition.

Harbour, a black-and-tan Coonhound, is set to enter the Guinness World Records for having the biggest ears in the world, reports the Daily Mail.

The pooch's left ear is 12 inches and a quarter, while the right is 13-and-a-half inches.

Jennifer Wert, Harbour's owner, told the news provider: "Cars will literally stop in the street to take a closer look and get a picture.

"Most days I forget how oddly long his ears are. He's a phenomenon in the world and he creates smiles wherever we go."

Harbour's ear span is even bigger that the height of the world's shortest man, who measures just 23.5 inches.

According to the Guinness World Records, the longest rabbit ears measured were 31.125 inches. This record was set in 2003.
