dog licking air
I have mentioned this quite some time ago but I will try again. Does anyone in this whole big wide world have a dog that licks the air? I know this sounds crazy for those of you who would have no idea what this is like. I sure would like to hear from anyone that knows what I'm talking about. When I asked about it before someone suggested having her teeth cleaned, but that is done regularly so that's not the problem. I did talk to several vets about it and neither had ever heard of such a thing, although I'm guessing the one is checking on it right now.
This little sweetie will sit on the paved driveway in the middle of winter and just lick the air. It's almost like she's in a trance because when I call her to come in the house she doesn't even respond. She is a Bichon,10 years old and has been doing this for about 5 years. I also have her sister, a litter mate and she doesn't do anything like this. These dogs have their regular checkups, shots, etc. so they are not abused or ignored in any way, just loved to death. LOL. I really would like to know if anyone has a clue or of someone that has a dog that does the same. I'm sure my vet would appreciate any thoughts on the matter also. I thank you very much for any help you can give me. BT
