    Mochi "Mo" Rickert, a St. Bernard from Sioux City, South Dakota, is the dog with the longest tongue, according to Guinness World Records.

    A St. Bernard in South Dakota has set a new, slobbery world record.

    Mochi, also known as Mo, holds the Guinness World Records title for having the longest tongue on a dog.

    According to Guinness World Records, Mochi's tongue measures in at 7.31 inches (18.58 cm).

    Mochi's owner, Carla Rickert of Sioux Falls, says her dog is happy, but also has some breathing problems because of her long tongue and slobbers more than usual when she's nervous. Mochi also needs to be given treats in a certain way and has problems picking items up from the floor.

    Christopher Lee Watts was charged with five counts of murder Monday for the deaths of his wife Shanann Watts and their two daughters Bella and Celeste. Watts had initially pleaded publicly that his wife and daughters had gone missing. Their bodies were discovered on the property of the oil and natural gas company Watts worked for. The D.A. said that it's "too early" to discuss whether prosecutors would seek the death penalty.
