Longest tongue

Puggy, a male Pekingese with a tongue that measures 4.5 inches long, lives in Texas with his owner, Becky Stanford. Abandoned by a breeder because of his looks, Puggy was taken in by Stanford and her husband as a puppy, and nine years later he was holding the world record for current longest dog tongue. As you can see, Puggy's tongue is a bit of a mouthful, so Stanford has to chop the dog's food into small pieces because he chews with his tongue.

The longest dog tongue on record belonged to a boxer named Brandy whose tongue was 17 inches long.
