Demi Moore considers the dog to be the smallest by Guinness World Records

Actress Demi Moore is no stranger to the big screen — or the tiny dog.

Actress Demi Moore thinks her pooch has what it takes to challenge Pearl, the current Guinness World Record holder for the world’s shortest canine life.

The dog mom shared photos of her Chihuahua pilaf in exchange for a $100 bill on an Instagram post on Wednesday, letting viewers know the competition is coming up.

“@guinnessworldrecords announced the world’s shortest dog today. I don’t know about you, but I think Pilaf might give Pearl a try! Shall we submit @pilaf.littlemouse?” Captioned Moore.

The 60-year-old has been considering submitting her dog for the Guinness World Record since March 24, but after watching Pearl being crowned on Sunday, Moore appears to be a step closer to an official submission.

Their Chihuahua Pilaf was born on November 9, 2020 and currently weighs just 700 grams, according to the actor.

For the pooch to stand a chance against the current champion, Pilaf must be under 3.59 inches. Pearl is 3.59 inches tall and weighs 1.22 pounds.

The GI Jane actor’s post received overwhelming support from friends and family, with 27,000 likes and over 635 comments.

Supermodel Helena Christensen commented below the post, agreeing that Pilaf has a chance: “Of course! 🐶 💵.”

While “Thor” actress Jaimie Alexander backs up this statement with “Yessssss 🙌🏻🥰”.

Even Moore’s daughter Tallulah Willis shared her reaction to her mother posing the dog for $100 versus the title holder who only posed with $1.

“NOT THE BENJAMIN 😭. You really are a legend,” she said.

It’s not certain if Pilaf will snag Pearl’s title, but the photos caught the attention of the Guinness World Records Instagram account, which commented: “😱😱😱”.

The two-year-old dog has her own Instagram account @pilaf.littlemouse with almost 8,000 followers, where she poses on corn in a crab costume or rocks a blue cowboy hat.

Both dogs have a passion for fashion. Pearl likes to “dress up nicely” and go shopping in Milan, her owner Vanesa Semler told Italian Guinness show Lo Show Dei Record.

As Moore continues to ponder her submission, Pearl, who is two years old and also known as “a little bit of a diva,” plans to bask in her victory and her family legacy.

Pearl is related to the previous title holder named Miracle Milly.

The current title holder’s aunt, Miracle Milly, was a previous record holder and was 3.80 inches tall before she died in 2020.

She weighed around 1 pound and was known to stick her tiny tongue out when someone took a picture of her. “She knows how to pose,” Semler told Guinness World Records in 2013.
