Boulder - Harbor has over 60cm of ears.

On Tuesday, the black-and-tan coonhound from Boulder, Colorado, won the 2012 Guinness World Records title for "longest ears on a living dog".

His left ear is 31.12cm and his right is 34.29cm long.

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

These days, Wert said 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 34.29cm, the other 34.92cm long.

Coonhounds use their ears to help with scent.
