Little Boo Boo
I'm sittin' here wondering. Will a matchbox hold Boo Boo's clothes? Boo Boo, the smallest dog in the world.
Standing just four inches tall, Boo Boo wouldn't be much use fetching the newspaper. But the special dog from Raceland, Kentucky now has the big title of the world's smallest dog.
Owner Lana Elswick has bred Chihuahuas for 19 years and said she always knew her one-year-old pooch was special. Boo Boo was only about the size of a thumb when she was born; so small, in fact, that she had to be fed with an eye dropper every two hours before she could eventually nurse a bottle.
