My old cat and dog used to lick the wrought iron on the fire place! I heard it was because of a mineral defiency but i'm not sure.....maybe your dog is practising on "how to pash on " with a certain special dog in his/her life!!

Maybe he/she is trying to tell you something... Sounds like a plot for an X-Files episode...

My Dachshund tries to lick people's legs. If you sit on the couch, he'll jump up on your lap and even try to push your pant legs up so he can get to your legs. We're trying to gently break him of this habit. But the poor baby came from an abusive home before we got him and this is just one of many little quirks.

the only other dogs in sally's life are lilly - who's like the old matriarch of the family. she's a cranky old thing and hates all dogs. she tolerates people, mainly because we provide food (and my sister gives her a queen sized bed to sleep on), and sky - who is an ex show dog and is as camp as a row of tents. he's too pretty to be straight. he's the perfect dog. gorgeous, sweet, loving, loyal, calm, and just wonderful. but of course he is gay. the best ones are always gay.


animals are the best.

That's interesting... our middle 'child', Chance, was also rescued by Mr. Blu & I from an abusive home. I've never considered that as having anything to do with what we refer to as his 'licker problem' - he'll lick the hide off your arm, hands, feet, whatever if you don't stop him! - but I wonder now that you've mention it if there's some kind of connection???

We mentioned the licking to our vet. She said it's a form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder that is very likely caused by past trauma.
