Hmmmm - my "licker" is my shih tzu!! She loves to lick the leather recliners, and she licks and flea bites at the covers on the bed.
As others have said, it's usually the sound that really gets to me. One of her five toys (she's like a Rainman) has her attention lately; she has been chewing on the ear until it just makes that awful gnawgnawgnaw sound. Last night I tossed it off the bed and she stood and looked at it until I handed her another toy.
Tibby will lick sometimes along with the scratching from her allergies. And I can tell where Wallis has licked her feet. Usually if I can't hear it I leave them alone!
RIP Wallis, John Robert, Tibby & Pip
