Betzie has an obsession!

Ok so Betzie has a little obsession that she loves to chew on hair or fur. When she was a younger puppy she used to love to chew on my hair. Now she likes to chew on my hair but she loves to chew on my cocker spaniel's fur. She gets her fur soaking wet. The funny part is that my cocker does not like the new ones when they come home but we give her a couple of weeks and she is fine with them. She just lays and lets her do it. My question is why does she do this? I thought maybe it was a comfort thing from when she was a tiny puppy. Any idea would be great. Thanks

Saydee loves to chew and lick people hair. I have no idea what the faschination is with it. Maybe it's like you said, a comfort thing, and reminds them of their mommy? It's cute but gross and annoying when your fresh out of the shower!

you know Cash does this to his squirrel. he did it from his first day home to this day almost 2 years later. I always thought of it as nursing or like a cat kneading. Maybe you could get betzie her very own furry nursing pal. maybe something made of rabbit fur like the ones Amanda posted.

Sally~ Well, I'd just love to kiss Oliver's face!

Megan~ Tori loves to chew on anything that resembles hair. Her favorite toys are the ones made w/long fake fur.

Megan~ Here's her favorite ball. She also has a bear made from the same stuff that's not on their website.

Interesting story: That ball was the last toy I bought for Shadow. When I brought Shadow home from the hospital, I stopped at Petco to buy a syringe to use to feed her. I couldn't leave her in the car while I went in, so I put her in the shopping cart. Well, I couldn't not take her past the toys after her long stay in the hospital, now, could I? Anyhow, she perked up when she saw that ball, so I got it for her. Unfortunately, she never got much time to play w/it.

When Tori came, I got out all of Shadow's old toys for her to play with. That ball was one of the 1st she was drawn to and it still remains a favorite, not only w/Tori, but w/my "granddogger", Rascal, too. Looks like Shadow had "good taste" in toys!

I had a German shep who had a favorite ball that he would suck on and knead the couch. He would do this and fall asleep. The vet said he was weaned too early. It was so cute to watch this big dog who everyone was afraid of, being such a big baby.

I wonder if Cash was weaned too early? Megan, we need pictures of Betzie sucking on your cocker spaniel's ears!!!
