St Bernard Mochi

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



A rescued St. Bernard from South Dakota named Mochi just earned her place in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the dog with the longest tongue.

According to Guinness World Records, 8-year-old Mochi's tongue measures in at 7.31 inches. The previous record was held by a male Pekingese, whose tongue was 4.5 inches.

Her owner, Carla Rickert, says Mochi is an all around happy pup but her world record-breaking tongue has caused her some breathing problems.

"Mochi is a rescued St. Bernard and we've had her for about six and a half years and her tongue measures from snout to tip seven point three inches," Rickert told AP.

Rickert also said that Mochi needs to be given treats in a certain way and has problems picking items up from the floor.

"She loves peanut butter so much that today we used peanut butter to help encourage her to stick her tongue out as much as we could," said Rickert. "So she can show you the impressive length and how far she can lick up on her face."
