TONGUES are certainly wagging over this new award winner.
Saint bernard Mochi, or Mo for short, has just been named Guinness World Records-holder for having the longest tongue on a dog — measuring at 18.6cm.

That smashes the previous record of just 11.4cm for a Pekingese called Puggy.
Owner Carla Rickert said eight-year-old Mo, who she adopted from an animal rescue centre six years ago, is something of a celebrity at home in South Dakota.
But while passers-by stop to get selfies with Mo, it’s not all a dog’s life.
The poor pup suffers from some breathing problems, struggles to pick up objects and produces a lot of slobber because of how much space her large tongue takes up in her mouth.
