Meet Zoey: Louisiana dog claims record for world's longest tongue
Zoey, a labrador/German shepherd mix, from Metairie, Louisiana, has earned the new record for world’s longest tongue. (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.

In Colorado River talks, still no agreement about water cuts
BOULDER CITY, Nev. - The Biden administration released an environmental analysis Tuesday of competing plans for how seven Western states and tribes reliant on the dwindling water supply from the Colorado River should cut their use but declined to publicly take a side on the best option.On one side is California and some tribes along the river that want to protect their high-priority rights to the river’s water, which they use for drinking and farming. On the other side are the other six states — Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico — who say it’s time to come up with an approach that more fairly shares the river.The Interior Department did not say how states should get to deeper water cuts, but defended its authority to make sure basic needs such as drinking water and hydropower generated from the river are met — even if it means setting aside the priority system."Failure is not an option," Interior Deputy Secretary Tommy Beaudreau told The Associated Press.The 1,450-mile (2,334-kilometer) powerhouse of the West serves 40 million people across seven states, which span tribal land, and Mexico, generates hydroelectric power for regional markets, and irrigates nearly 6 million acres (2,428 hectares) of farmland.A multi-decade drought in the West intensified by climate change, rising demand and overuse has sent water levels at key reservoirs along the river to unprecedented lows.

Group saved from snowy trail thanks to rescuer's six-wheel drive Pinzgauer
Search and rescue workers personal six-wheel drive Pinzgauer military utility vehicle (Grand County Sheriffs Office) A group of Arizona residents and their dog have a search and rescue worker’s personal six-wheel drive military utility vehicle to thank for rescuing them from a snowy Utah trail.According to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office in Moab, Utah, the group accessed the Thompson Canyon/Polar Mesa trail at about 4,300 feet up while it was raining and snowing. Their vehicles got stuck in the mud as they tried to get up the trail.The sheriff’s office said one of the men called his wife in Arizona and asked her to call for help, but the group still continued up the trail by "winching the lead vehicle forward, with the other vehicles following in its path.""They eventually got stuck in three feet of deep snow … and were unable to move," the sheriff’s office said.READ MORE: Bullfrogs for dinner?

Snow levels had dropped to about 6,000 feet.Named Liberty and Guardian, the bald eagles were filmed shielding their only egg from the elements during a snowstorm in California.
