What does a dog do with a tongue that is nearly 7 1/2 inches long? Eat peanut butter, of course. Lots and lots of peanut butter.
Mochi is a striking St. Bernard who spends his days with family snacking on spoonfuls of Jiffy, leaving large pools of drools wherever he goes, and letting his well-endowed tongue proudly hang.
In addition to blepping like a boss and gathering snuggles from passersby, Mochi adds another highly-sought achievement to his list of conquests. Mochi is now a record holder for having the longest canine tongue in the entire world, according to the impressively-sized staff at Guinness.
"When we open that Guinness World's Records book and see Mochi's picture in there, we're going to feel very proud," Carla Rickert told Star-Telegram. "It's going to make all the water and slobber we've had to clean up over the last six-and-a-half years well worth it."
Mochi is an 8-year-old rescue hailing from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. This slobberer's treat catcher is a staggering 7.31 inches at full extension, reports the Miami Herald.
As amazing as the current record holder's tongue is, Mochi does not have the longest dog tongue of all time. That honor goes to Brandi, a deceased boxer from Michigan whose tongue was an incredible 17 inches long.
This author's tongue is a paltry 10 centimeters long — and he wonders what he's even doing with his life.
