This dog gets crazier by the moment! :)

Now he's on my bed licking my pillow.

I mean, he's going to town on it like I had put a steak on it the night before!

I guess he's just bored or trying to entertain himself, but he just sniffed around and then hopped up and got down to business on the pillow. He's been doing it for at least 5 minutes now.

Crazy dog! :D Though, licking is better than shredding, so I'll count my blessings :D

Not that I'm aware of :eek:

:D

Yeah, it probably does smell like me (or at least my hair, he has this...thing...about my hair).

Eeew! I'd curb that behavior pronto! Just what you need, come home exhausted, bed never looked so comfortable, only to plop into a pile of dog spit!

Mine do that as well. It's kind of odd...I think it's because the bed smells like us so much (because we lay on it all night) that it tastes good too. I don't worry about it, it dries by the time we go to bed the next time.

Mine do that, not bad, what they do like to do is lick me and my daughter, mainly the hands and arms when we come home or are sitting on the floor - they will run by and just lick us quick and go on. Also after we bathed and lotion............I seen on Ceaser Milan that it may be submission as well.

Zoey tries to do that at night when your head is ON the pillow.. She'd rather lick our faces, but seeing as we're trying to sleep we tell her no, and then she starts licking the pillows :p

Oh yeah, Wally is hooked on lotion too.

I don't dare lie down in his presence unless I'm ready to get licked!

If I lie down, he'll go after the space between my ears and neck. It's like it's a perfect fit for his nose, so he HAS to check it out.

Guess he's checking to see if I've washed behind my ears! And evidently, if I haven't (at least not to his satisfaction), he'll help me out :eek: :D

I clean your ears, you scratch mine?

I've read about that, where licking can be a submissive/appeasement gesture.

I get the hands and arms treatment as well. Or lately with the weather warmer, knees and shins treatment. I could be sitting minding my own business, he'll come up and lick my knees a few times and then curl up at my feet (or in the space between my legs).

My female humps my pillow, :) so what do you think that means, I am serious, usually right after evening meal. I have amale also and he looks at her, he is not sure why either. We discussed it and we both agree it a dominance thing between her and the pillow. Least my pillow is dry. lol

Akira licks and rubs himself on or pillows, he also does that to anyone lying on the floor, he'll start licking their hair and suddenly rub himself on the hair like a mad men.

If you put a command on the licking and make it into a trick you can have control of the behavior. No doggy tongue ever touches me because i put a command on the licking

Ewww! I'm gonna go change my pillowcase now.......

Penny sometimes licks the walls and sofa. I don't know why. She's just weird, I guess. She licks the carpet, too, but usually only after something yummy has spilled on it.

No, I'm pretty sure that there is no worry. It is completely natural. What dogs don't smell, they eat, or in your case, lick. They love their owner's smell. Actually, I sometimes give my dog something that I commonly use (pillowcase, t-shirt, etc...) so it would give her comfort while I'm gone. It actually works!
