This pooch is all ears

ON September 6, a black-and-tan coonhound from Boulder, Colorado, received the 2012 Guinness World Records title for "longest ears on a living dog."

His left ear is 31.12 centimeters long and his right is 34.29 centimeters long.

Owner Jennifer Wert says when her eight-year-old pooch 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 34.29 centimeters long, the other 34.92 centimeters long.

Coonhounds use their ears to help with scent.
