Puggy, a 10 year-old Pekingese, was left for dead by his first owners because of his look. But Guinness World Records officials have found that his tongue is longer than any other dogs. He has secured a place in the Guinness World Records 2011 after judges were told how his 4.5in (11.43cm) tongue was almost as long as his entire body.

Joining Puggy in the record book are A Dexter cow from Yorkshire, Swallow measures in at just 33.5 inches from rear foot to hind, and the bantam bovine is smaller than the standard sheep. At 11-years-old, Swallow - who is at present pregnant has lived a full life and has given birth to nine calves - all of whom tower over her and Darius, the Longest Rabbit, who measures in at 4ft 3 inches.

Also making their debut in the book is the world’s largest fried breakfast an s10.95 six-of-everything gut buster from Marios Cafe in Bolton and terrier Anastasia from California who holds the record for balloon popping who popped 100 Balloons in 44.49 secs on a U.S. TV show.
