so i don’t know if this is common amongst dogs or not… i know that the way dogs show their affection is by licking. it’s sort of how they give kisses.
which is fine. except that our dog will keep going until you stop him. not only does he keep going, but he’s completely emphatic about it. if one of us is lying down on our back, he will come over and just go ballistic all over our face.
it’s almost to the point where i can’t breath because, of course, i’ve got my mouth closed so he doesn’t get me in there, and while i’m trying to breathe through my nose, it’s a bit difficult when you have a puppy dog tongue covering the airway there.
eventually, i have to push him off as i like breathing and apparently, from what i understand, one needs air to continue living.
he’s now developped a habit of placing both his puppy paws on our face to hold us down so he can assault us with his kisses.
i almost feel like i have to put a sign on on front door that says:
BEWARE OF DOG (possible chance of death by licking)
