Paige Olsen calls the ears on her coonhound "extravagantly long." Each ear measures more than 13 inches. Her coonhound tops the Guinness World Record list for longest ears on any living dog.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Each ear is a little more than 13 inches long, which makes her dog a Guinness World Record holder for the longest ears on any living dog. Olsen says Lou's giant ears don't cause any issues, and in fact, she gets a lot of compliments. It's MORNING EDITION.
