Not all dogs are bred within standard. Many, MANY that you will see do not have solid tongues. Kind of like saying GSDs don't have white on them. They do, they just shouldn't.
Growing up we had chows with solid tongues, blotches, spots, and anything in between. Some with very little purple/black at all.
