(Credit: Guinness World Records) METAIRIE, La. - A dog in Louisiana has earned the new distinction of having the world’s longest tongue, measuring a whopping 5 inches long. Zoey, a labrador/German shepherd mix, from the greater New Orleans area, officially claimed the record for longest tongue on a living dog, according to the Guinness World Records – which noted how the pup’s tongue is longer than a soda can. Bisbee, an English Setter from Tucson, Arizona, previously held the record at 3.74 inches in length.RELATED: ‘Positively regal’ dog rescued after scaling England’s tallest mountainZoey’s owners, Sadie and Drew Williams, thought she would grow into her tongue, but as time went on, people began to comment on how long it was, according to GWR."We got Zoey when she was only six weeks old and in the first ever picture we have of her, she has her tongue sticking out," Sadie Williams told the organization. Her owners added how the tongue length is most obvious after playing outside and panting. "It would be slobbering all over the place," Drew Williams added. The average avocado weighs about 6 ounces, according to Guinness officials.Last year, the couple took Zoey to the veterinarian it measured, from the tip of her snout to the tip of her tongue.Zoey’s owners said some of the dog’s favorite activities include being outside, fetching balls, chasing squirrels, car rides, and swimming in the canal. "She will pretty much go fetch anything you throw and swim in any body of water that’s available," Drew Williams told GWR.

7 children removed from Bucks County trailer home with 'unsanitary' conditions, police say
WEST ROCKHILL TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Seven children were removed from their home in Bucks County after officers found them to be living in "unsanitary" and "unsafe" conditions, police say. According to the Pennridge Regional Police Department, on April 23, 2023, officers responded to the 600 block of Roseann Lane in West Rockhill Township for a report of three children entering an abandoned trailer. Officers returned the children to their home and found inadequate living conditions, including a pad lock on the refrigerator. Authorities say the children's parents said the lock was put there because the family had little money and they wanted to prevent the children from eating all the food. Responding officers filed a report with Bucks County Children and Youth before returning with a representative from the department later in the day. While investigating, four more children were found hidden in a back bedroom in the trailer home, police say. MORE LOCAL HEADLINESAccording to officials, the living conditions of the home were found to be unsafe by both responding officers and the investigator from Bucks County Children and Youth. The seven children were removed from the trailer home and placed in protective custody, authorities say. Interviews with the children revealed they lacked basic knowledge, including their birthdays.
