A World Record Tongue

Bisbee was auctioned off as a puppy at a fundraiser for a charity. Jay and Ericka Johnson went home with the English setter and love him dearly. They noticed he has an extra-long tongue, but it was only under anesthesia that it could be measured. Bisbee's tongue is 3.74 inches (9.5 centimeters) long! That doesn't seem all that long on paper, but that tongue is long enough to make it into the Guinness World Record book for the longest tongue on a living dog. Yes, there truly is a world record for everything. The previous record holder had a tongue nearly twice as long at 7.31 inches, but note that the record is for a living dog.
