Mochi's supersized "licker" measures 7.3 inches "from snout to tip," said owner Carla Rickert of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. That qualifies her as having the longest tongue on a dog (current), according to Guinness World Records . Mochi, or "Mo," was rescued from a Colorado shelter for big dogs when she was 2 years old.
