Mochi dog ‘Mo’ Rickert, 8 years old from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA has just been recognized by Guinness Book of World Records as the longest tongue dog in the world.
Mochi is a St. bitch dog. Bernard, possesses a tongue of 18.58 cm long. The four-legged friend beat an old record of 11.43 cm belonging to a Pekingese dog named Puggy. The dog named Mochi “Mo” Rickert, from Sioux Falls city of South Dakota, USA, attracts the attention of everyone thanks to its own 18.58 cm long sloth.
In the recently published Guinness World Book of Animals, Mochi appears with the title of the longest tongue dog. Mochi was adopted by the Ricket family in Sioux Falls at the age of two through a large dog rescue organization. Talking about the dog, Ms. Carla Rickert described Mochi as “a lively, carefree dog”.
“Mochi brings a lot of joy to our lives because it is calm and humorous,” Carla said. When we opened the Guinness Book of World Records and saw the photo of Mochi in it, everyone felt very proud.
Despite the high performance, Mochi is described by the owner as still very modest. Ms. Carla said: “Mochi never brag but I know it is very proud of its new record”.
“We are very happy to welcome Mochi and its record-long tongue,” said Craig Glenday, editor of the book.
Carla Rickert, owner of the dog Mochi, said: “We have not yet believed that is the truth. Mochi is very humble, but I know that it is proud of the new record just like us.”
