What are they doing?

My dogs are either making out or trying to eat each other's faces off. It is seriously bizarre. Does any one else have dogs that do this? I've never seen it before.

My little dog chews on my big dog's face. Is that what it is?

They are both chewing on each other at the same time. Instead of french kissing, it's like they are french eating each other's faces. No zombies or bath salts either.

They still play like this, but the white pup is now 80 lbs, Ollie is a little bit wider now, but the same size. they also play all the conventional styles too, wrestle, chase, chew on each others faces...

oh all the sounds are from Ollie.

Mine do that every morning. They have their 15 minutes of playing like this before we start the day.

yeah Ivy , pups like Jinx will often use face licking and mouthing as an appeasing play signal. They tend to outgrow this but some continue into adolescence. Generally older dogs will tolerate it but some won't and will let pups know about it by the time they're an adolescent. Nothing to worry about. Let them have their fun. If Gryff gets tired of it he will let Jinx know.

Yeah, like that. Dave, I wasn't worried about it, I just thought it was a bit odd. Gryff puts up with a lot from that puppy! Poor guy is always being dragged around by his ears. The only time he ever gets mad at Jinx is when I am trying to have some cuddle time with him (Gryff) and Mr. Affection-Deprived Jealous Puppy gets in the way. Seriously, he doesn't give me five seconds with Gryff. You'd think nobody pays any attention to him.

My pup acts the same way. He acts like he's been ignored his whole life whenever there's anyone around to pet him. Not that he spent the last half hour getting cuddles in my lap. He's 2.5. Some are more velcro than others.
