Question Licking chops (mouth)

It seems that Beamer has started a weird habbit of 'licking his chops' while sleeping or trying to sleep. It is soooo LOUD and annoying.. lol (its sounds like a kid eating a mouth full of icecream and he is not closing his mouth while chewing or whatever,,lol)

Any reason why he might be doing this??

I don't know Ryan....My sheltie though cleans himself at night,and it is an annoying slirping/sucking/licking sound. Is Beamer doing that?

Can't help you there, but Brando's stomach sometimes makes the loudest squirting noises when he's sleeping. I assume it's his food being digested.

BTW I just ordered a 50 pack of odor free, free range bully sticks from here. Only $42.

Sedona does exactly the same thing. It's almost like she' repeatedly lickiing her lips. I know she's not hungry or thirsty so I just figure it's her way of calming herself for sleep. Odd, though.

I don't have an answer for your persay....but my dog Miranda, will lick and smack her lips like she just had peanut butter and it is so annoying. I felt with her the weather had something to do with it...like dry air...because she seemed to do it most of the time in our bedroom. We have since put in a humidifier directly through our furnace and it seemed to lessen it. Our bedroom air is definately not as dry anymore.

Or if she had been sleeping for awhile and she has started to leave a tip of her tongue out of her mouth. Kind of cute...because when she dreams it looks like she is 'suckling'. Maybe her tongue got dry...like a cotton mouth we adults have after sleeping hard/passed out with our mouths open.

Maybe Beamer is just trying to get his mouth 'moist again'.

Other than those thoughts, I have no other ideas.
