    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.

    [NATL-NY] Democrats Release Memo to Counter GOP's FBI Claims

    A redacted, declassified memo released by Democrats on the House intelligence committee Saturday aims to counter a narrative that Republicans on the committee have pushed for months — that the FBI and Justice Department conspired against President Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, abusing a secret surveillance process to spy on one of his operatives in its Russia investigation. Checkey Beckford reports.

    The 8-year-old Mochi broke the previous record held by a male Pekingese, whose tongue was 4.5 inches (11.43 cm).

    Mochi is listed in the new Guinness World Records: Amazing Animals book.
