Colorado dog holds record for longest ears


An 8-year-old black and tan coonhound named Harbor gets the 2012 Guinness World Records title for "longest ears on a living dog."

The video was posted on /*YouTube*/ by Guinness World Records. The dog from Boulder, Colorado has ears more than a foot long.

Harbor's left ear is 12.25 inches long and his right ear is 13.5 inches long.

Owner Jennifer Wert says when he was a puppy, he would trip on his ears and roll down stairs. These days, Wert says people often stop them to ask questions, take photos or tug on his ears.

Tigger, a bloodhound from Illinois who died in 2009, still holds the record for longest ears ever. One was 13.5 inches long, the other 13.75 inches long.
