Boo Boo

Who could doubt that Chihuahua dogs, a race that has its origins in the north of Mexico, are the world's smallest pooches? The problem is now that there is a fierce competition on deciding upon the world's smallest Chihuahua/dog.

At one and a half year old, Boo Boo, a long coated Chihuahua, of just 4 inches (10 cm) tall and a weight of 1.5 pounds (675 g) has been crowned the new smallest living dog in the world by height by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Boo Boo has won the race in which her main competitor was Ducky, a smooth coat Chihuahua which is 4.9 inches (12 cm) tall.

"Boo Boo was fed with an eye dropper every 2 hours, when she was born, and weighed just 1 ounce (28g)." said Boo Boo's owner Mrs. Lana Elswick of Raceland, KY.

"The last dog to hold this title, which died, was 5.4 inches (14 cm) tall. She’s a little wiggle worm. I think that’s one reason why people started raising such big Chihuahuas; it’s very tedious to raise them small like Boo Boo, the way they are supposed to be," she said.

The previous record holder was Danka Kordak of Slovakia. Elswick has been raising Chihuahuas for 19 years.

Messier with Ducky

"To get this title, the dog has to be a year old so that it’s at adult size. Boo Boo turned a year old in April and the dog in Florida doesn’t turn a year old until June." said Elswick about Ducky, which was measured in June 2007.

Still, Ducky, weighing just 1.4 pounds (650 g), is the world's smallest dog by weight.

"People say Chihuahuas are miserable and evil. I think they're really sweet, and if you want to go some place, you can just throw him in your pocketbook." said his owner Lisa Messier.

Still, surprisingly, the world's smallest dog ever, as stated by Guinness, was not a Chihuahua but a dwarf Yorkshire terrier, just 2.8 inches (7 cm) tall.
