The 12-inch ears of an Oregon dog set a Guinness World Record.
When each of the ears on an Oregon woman’s black and brown coonhound were measured at 12.38 inches long, she set a Guinness World Record.
Lou, Paige Olsen’s 3-year-old canine, has the world’s longest ears, according to Guinness (living).
Olsen said she’d always known Lou’s ears were “extravagantly long,” but it wasn’t until the COVID-19 outbreak that she decided to measure them.
Olsen, a veterinary technician, told Guinness, “All black and tan coonhounds have gorgeous long ears, some are just longer than others.”
Lou’s unusually long ears, according to Olsen, have not caused any medical issues for the dog.
“Of course, everyone wants to touch the ears; they’re quite easy to fall in love with after just one sighting,” she explained.
Lou is also a dog show competitor, according to Olsen, with titles from the American Kennel Club and Rally Obedience.
