How ‘bout THIS dog?

April 23, 2003

St. Petersburg-- A Florida woman says her pooch is the smallest dog in the world, and she can prove it.

Linda Skeels Hopson says her 14-month-old Yorkshire Terrier weighs exactly one pound and is just eight inches long.

Tiny “Pinocchio,” or “No-key” as she likes to call him, is so small he sleeps in a bird cage, and can fit in a baseball cap. The dog's bark even sounds more like a chirp, and he eats Gerber baby food.

Hopson is taking her case to the Guinness Book of World Records. The current holder of the smallest dog title is a 17-ounce Yorkie living in Thailand.

Pinocchio even has his own website .
