There's a dog in Kentucky named Boo Boo who has set her place in history for being the world's smallest pup.

According to the Guiness Book of Records, at just four inches tall and 18 ounces, the Long-haired Chihuahua from Raceland, Kentucky is about an inch smaller then the previous record holder.

Owner Lana Elswick says that when Boo Boo was born, she was the size of her thumb – and after six weeks weighed just 3 ounces.

The tiny dog had to be nursed with an eye dropper for the first few weeks before switching to a bottle.

Today she eats ground turkey and vegetables, and spends her days napping and playing.

I'd like to know how old she is....a photo, showing her in comparison with another object, would have been nice...
