Whoa, Those Are Some Big Ears

Dog's 12-Inch Ears Are World's Largest
Wed Sep 24

LONDON - They drag into his food. Sometimes, he even trips over them. Now they're getting an earful of attention.

A basset hound whose grandfather gained fame as Biggles, the face of Hush Puppies shoes, has hit the limelight himself, making it into the new 2004 Guinness Book of World Records as the dog with the longest ears.

Guinness, which will publish its new edition of the book Thursday, issued a photo of Mr. Jeffries, Biggles' grandson, on Wednesday, showing the dog standing there with a hangdog expression and raised ears that look like the wings a Boeing 747.

Mr. Jeffries, whose full name is Knightsfollie Ladiesman, has ears that measured 11.5 inches on Nov. 3, 2002, Guinness said.

Owner Phil Jeffries, of Southwick, England, said his pet is more than just a hound dog. The dog's ears are insured for $47,800.

The new titleholder only managed to set the record when his long-eared granddad died last year, giving up his claim to the Guinness book.

I feel so badly that he trips over his ears
