Mine are the same too. E45 is their favourite, they go nuts for he stuff, I think it's the urea in the lotion... ew, I know.:grnyuk:

I think you are actually referring to "human icing."

Human icing http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/madhouse/girl_crazy.gif

Our little guy does it too. He also enjoys exposed toes and will chase you down for a little munch on them.

Murphy goes crazy for some E45, but Misty is never fussy about it :)

Lip balm is a problem too - Even the grapefruit flavor!

I would think this would apply to all licky dogs!

Oh my goodness- so I'm not the only one hiding from my dog after putting lotion on! Yay! lol What's really fun is when she gets under the covers and realizes my feet are freshly lotioned...gah! :P

Yep AJ is the same too. I have some honey and coco butter that I can only use when he is in his cage otherwise he will not leave me alone!
Glad I'm not the only one.

I'm so glad we're not the only one! Forrest goes WILD for my vanilla carmex. At first I thought he just liked me more and gave me more kisses :) but then I realized it was the carmex. He also loves my very expensive nighttime face cream. It got to the point where I felt like he was licking it all off and now I avoid him while it dries so I don't waste it!
