View Full Version : Question about "eye licking"

22nd October 2008, 04:06 AM

I love absolutely everything about my Lucy, but she has this habit of licking my eyes. Not my face, neck, anywhere else-just my eyes. She doesn't do this to anyone else.
Has anyone heard of this? Why does she do this?

I can't advise on the eye licking, but our Cleo loves to lick ears! Unless someone else comes in with real advice, perhaps it's just her way of letting you know she loves you??

My two only do that when I wear Mascara.

Can't help on the human eye licking but Pippin licks both my other dogs eyes. He will lick my eyes too but then does the rest of my face too!

I would guess eyes are kinda salty tasting due to salty tears. Maybe Lucy needs more sodium in her diet? Just a wild guess. She might just have a thing for eyes.

something I read elsewhere is that it is a nurturing "thing", so perhaps she is just "mothering" you!

hmm....could be. I think it's so weird that she doesn't do it to anyone but me. Maybe I have an abundance of salt (lol)
thanks for the help!
