here is boo boo the chihuahua’s amazing story …
a tiny chihuahua has taken a giant leap into history after the guinness book of world records officially named it the new title holder for world’s smallest dog.
at just four inches tall, “boo-boo,” a diminutive dog in raceland, ky., just edged out another chihuahua to win the crown.
lana elswick says boo-boo was born the size of her thumb. elswick says from the beginning she knew her dog was special, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that she knew just how special.
“there was this contest going on between two little dogs, but i knew i had the smallest one. but, i just had to wait until i had my certificate to show everyone,” elswick says.
the guinness book now considers the full-grown though petite pet the smallest dog in the world, nearly an inch smaller than the previous record holder.

elswick says boo-boo lives a life of luxury now, eating a quality meal while getting plenty of playtime in between.
“she doesn’t like dog food, so i fix her ground turkey and put peas in it. that’s her breakfast,” she says. “and then she likes to lay in her bed and sleep after she eats. and they she likes to get up and play with her toys.”
according to the guinness web site, in comparison, the world’s tallest dog is gibson, a harlequin great dane, who measured 42.2 inches tall on aug. 31, 2004 and is owned by sandy hall of grass valley, calif.
