Face licking...strange!

Scooter keeps licking Murphy's face, is this strange? Murphy has goopy eyes which I try to clean often but obviously I'm not getting it done enough. Could this be the reason Scooter licks his face so much? Is he attempting to groom him? Or does Murph just have "leftovers" stuck in his fur?

Is the licking followed by a lot of humping?

They are propably just puppy kisses. I bet Scooter is so happy and proud to have another Hav to play with. Cicero trys so hard to lick and kiss on my daughter's yorkie....but she will have none of that going on. She nips and he jumps back...then tries again.


Cicero trained Dale & Ronnie

Scooter just loves his little bro. However-
We need photo documentation for further analysis.

LoL, Bailey and Simba lick each other and sometimes not only on the face . Bailey has to lick my face, from top to bottom, everytime I come home. He encirlces my nose with his mouth for about 2 -3 seconds and will not be happy until he does. He doesn't bite it just breaths on it!

My girls lick eachother too. Bella is a groomer, she grooms everyone, us the cats. Funny both my girls have to lick my nose when ever I wake up or come back from being out.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

Hi Anne, it's usually a calming signal or submission gesture.
