She’s playful, funny, smart, and now she is a Guinness World Record holder for the longest ears!
Owner Paige Olsen proudly shares the story of how her dog, Lou, gained the title ‘Guinness World Record’s Longest Ears.’
Paige fell in love with Lou when she first met her as a 3-year-old Black and Tan Coonhound pup. She instantly knew she had to adopt Lou and give her a loving family.
Olsen and her friends always joked about Lou’s excessively long ears. However, it wasn’t until last year that she decided to measure Lou’s ears.
To her surprise, each ear measured 13.38 inches long. The stunning Lou netted the Guinness World Record for the most elongated ears on a dog and secured the first position in the Guinness World Record Book 2020.
At this auspicious moment, Paige said, “All black and tan Coonhounds have beautiful long ears, some are just longer than others. Their long ears drag on the ground and stir up scents when they are tracking out in the field. It makes them great at following long, very old or ‘cold’ tracks that other breeds of dog may not pick up on.”
Olsen is a veterinary technician and takes good care of Lou’s million-dollar ears, even though they are not high maintenance.
“I check them every once in a while and clean them regularly. I use a snood, an ear warmer for doggos, to prevent snow from entering Lou’s ears in the winter.”
Lou is now a celebrity and has fans everywhere she goes. Her hooman, Paige, inspires pet owners to recognize their pet’s uniqueness and love them regardless.
