Happy Turkey Stuffing, Yank-a-doodle-Dandeez!

World's Longest Ears

A Black and Tan Coonhound named 'Harbor', aged 8, from Boulder, Colorado, USA, has earned a spot in the upcoming Guinness World Records 2012 Edition for having the Longest Ears on a Living Dog.

Owned by Jennifer Wert, Harbor's left and right ears measure 12.25 inches and 13.5 inches respectively.
As a puppy Harbor would struggle with his colossal ears; frequently causing him to trip over them and roll down stairs. 

Now at the age of 8 the purebred has grown into his ears (only occasionally tripping over!), the only trouble being caused by the attention he receives from members of the public.

World's Longest Nose

The Longest nose on a living person measures 8.8 cm (3.46 in) long from the bridge to the tip and belongs to Mehmet Ozyurek (Turkey). 

It was measured on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Rome, Italy, on 18 March 2010.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

World's Longest Tongue

The longest tongue on a dog measures 11.43 cm (4.5 in) and belongs to Puggy, a male Pekingese owned by Becky Stanford (both United States). The measurement was taken at Avondale Haslet Animal Clinic, Texas, United States, on 8 May 2009, when Puggy was 9 years old.

World's Tallest Dog

The tallest dog ever is Giant George, a Great Dane, who measured 1 m 9 cm (43 in) tall on 15 February 2010 and is owned by David Nasser of Tucson, Arizona, USA.

World's Tallest Man

The tallest man living is Sultan Kösen (Turkey, b.10 December 1982) who measured 251 cm (8 ft 3 in) in Ankara, Turkey, on 08 February 2011.

The part-tme farmer was the first man over 8 ft (2.43 m) to be measured by Guinness World Record in over 20 years.

Indeed, GWR only knows of 10 confirmed or reliable cases in history of humans reaching 8 ft or more.

Sultan also holds the records for widest hand span and largest feet on a living person.

And of course who could not forget

World's Cutest Dog

Wee Emma will have spent a month with us on Friday.  Can you believe it?  During that time she has winkled her way into hearts and into our bed!  Yeah, she finally upgraded from DoggieBed to  sharing our DoubleBed.  Och, but she's just a joy to have in our lives. 

Emma still wet from having a bath

Crying all the way...

Love Me! Love Me!  Don't make me do that again?!

Happy Turkey Stuffing, Yankadoodles!

Mmmmmmm....methinks the great dane pic has been photoshopped....look at the lady's arm. It's not in the same proportion as the rest of her...

Puppy is cute though...but wet dogs smell worse than dry ones...
