Harbor the dog has over 60 centimetres of ears to deal with.

And now the black-and-tan coonhound from Boulder, Colorado, in the US has been awarded the 2012 Guinness World Records title for "longest ears on a living dog". His left ear is 31.12 cm long and his right is 34.29 cm long.

Owner Jennifer Wert said that when her 8-year-old dog was a puppy, he would trip on his ears and fall down stairs. These days, she 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 cm long, the other 34.92 cm long.
