    South Dakota St. Bernard Has Record-Longest Tongue for a Dog
    Guinness World Records
    Mochi "Mo" Rickert, a St. Bernard from Sioux City, South Dakota, is the dog with the longest tongue, according to Guinness World Records.

    A St. Bernard in South Dakota has set a new, slobbery world record.

    Mochi, also known as Mo, holds the Guinness World Records title for having the longest tongue on a dog.

    According to Guinness World Records, Mochi's tongue measures in at 7.31 inches (18.58 cm).

    Mochi's owner, Carla Rickert of Sioux Falls, says her dog is happy, but also has some breathing problems because of her long tongue and slobbers more than usual when she's nervous. Mochi also needs to be given treats in a certain way and has problems picking items up from the floor.
