BHarbor has over two feet of ears. Does that make him a 6-foot dog?

Probably not. But yesterday, the black-and-tan coonhound from Boulder, Colo., gets the 2012 Guinness World Records title for “longest ears on a living dog.”

His left ear is 12.25 inches long and his right is 13.5 inches long.

Owner Jennifer Wert says when her 8-year-old was a puppy, he would trip on his ears and roll down stairs.

These days, Wert 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 13.5 inches long, the other 13.75 inches long.

Coonhounds use their ears to help with scent.

Meanwhile a Connecticut man faces several felony charges after being arrested inside a dog pound where his Italian greyhound had spent the weekend.

Walther Scovish had the dog, Missy, taken from him on Sept. 3 after Scovish was pulled over and charged with possession of heroin.

Police say they found Scovish inside the pound just before 6 a.m. on Monday after an alarm went off. Police say Scovish told them his dog had special needs.
