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.

The 8-year-old Mochi shattered the previous record, which was held by a male Pekingese whose tongue was 4.5 inches.

Mochi is listed in the new Guinness World Records: Amazing Animals book.
