Mr. Jeffries has stepped into a void created by the death of his famous grandfather to claim the title of the dog with the longest ears in the world. The 2004 Guinness Book of World Records will acclaim the two-year-old English basset hound for his 29.2-centimetre ears.
His grandfather, Biggles, the face of Hush Puppies, relinquished the title on his death last year.
Mr. Jeffries' owner, Phil Jeffries, claimed his pet's ears were insured for more than $60,000. He said the dog stands on them, trips on them and drags them in his food. The owner's girlfriend says the dog howls in the morning until he gets his tea and two slices of toast with strawberry jam.
Her four children love to dress him up in hats and tie his ears in a knot on top of his head.

To quote a local TV newsman after he got done with this story - "he looks pretty ear-atable to me"......

I can relate - there's a certain part of my anatomy that I continually stand on, trip over, and drag ... ;)
