Mochi “Mo” Rickert is no ordinary pup. The female St. Bernard from South Dakota, USA, holds a Guinness World Record for the world’s longest tongue on a dog. Measuring 18.58 cm or 7.3 inches, Mochi’s tongue earned her a coveted spot on the Guinness list in 2016.
According to Guinness World Records, Mochi’s owners, Carla and Craig Rickert, adopted her from a rescue home when she was just 2-years-old.
“With this record, we hope to bring attention to how much joy rescued animals can bring to their new family,” says Carla. “Mo is resilient, comical, loving and eternally grateful and loyal to us – her forever family. This once abused and neglected pup has taught us that it’s okay to be different. We are proud of her unique feature.”

On Mochi’s achievement, Carla says, “It still does not seem real! Mochi is so humble, she never brags or boasts but I know that she is as proud of her new record as we are.”
