Lou can’t give you a hand, but she can certainly lend an ear.

Guinness World Records recently awarded the 3-year-old American dog with therecord for “Longest Ears on a Dog (Living), according to a release fromGuinness.

The hound’s floppy ears hang real low, with each flap measuring around 13.38inches in length. Lou ended up in the running for the record after her ownerhad some extra time to observe the dog.

Paige Olsen adopted Lou when the pooch was younger. She told Guinness it waslove at first sight and that the dog’s “extravagantly long” ears factored intothe decision to bring the pet home.

While Lou’s ears didn’t go unnoticed, Olsen, a veterinary technician, didn’tmeasure the appendages until the pandemic, when she had more time to marvel ather dog’s unique trait. This interest led to Olsen submitting Lou for theGuinness World Record.

According to Olsen, Lou isn’t bothered by her elongated ears, and they don’trequire special upkeep, aside from a monthly cleanliness check. Lou alsosports a snood in winter to keep her ears warm and out of the snow.
