Here's the story on Mr. Jeffries from

 A Basset Hound whose grandfather gained fame as Biggles, the face of “Hush Puppies” shoes, has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Dog with the Longest Ears,” the company said.

Guinness issued this photo of Mr. Jeffries, Biggles' grandson, on Wednesday, showing the dog standing with a hangdog expression and raised ears resembling the wings of a jet plane.

Mr. Jeffries, whose full name is Knightsfollie Ladiesman, has ears that measure 11½ inches.

Owner Phil Jeffries, of Southwick, England, said Mr. Jeffries, whose ears are insured for $47,800, was often standing on his ears, tripping over them and dragging them through his food.
