Mochi, a female St. Bernard from South Dakota, USA, has secured a Guinness World Record for having the longest tongue of any living dog.
Mochi, who is 8 years old, has a tongue measuring 12.7 cm (5 inches) from the tip to the snout. This is the longest tongue of any living dog, beating the previous record holder, a male Pekingese from the United Kingdom, whose tongue measured 11.43 cm (4.5 inches).
Mochi’s owner, Carla Rickert, said that she first noticed Mochi’s long tongue when she was a puppy. “I thought it was cute, but I never imagined it would be a record-breaker,” she said.
Mochi’s long tongue has become a source of amusement for her family and friends. “She loves to give kisses and she’s always sticking her tongue out,” Rickert said. “It’s hilarious.”
Mochi’s long tongue has also been a source of concern for Rickert. She worries that Mochi’s tongue could get caught on something and cause her to choke. To prevent this, Rickert has taught Mochi to keep her tongue inside her mouth when she’s running or playing.
Mochi’s record-breaking tongue has also made her an internet sensation. She has her own Instagram account, which has over 100,000 followers, and her own website, where fans can purchase merchandise featuring her likeness.
Mochi’s Guinness World Record is a testament to her unique and remarkable feature. She is an inspiration to all dogs, showing that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
