    Do your dogs lick other dogs ears?

    I took Zimba out with my friend's dog and he was walking along licking her ears. Now he's just done it to our cat, she has a big sloppy ear now :D

    Is it a friendship thing?

    Millie cannot leave Buster's ear alone. She is always licking him out. I think it's a comfort thing for her :confused: but Buster seems to enjoy it :)

    Baxter licks one of our cat's ears, Millie.....
    But he also licks mine & my daughters ears rather than any other part of the 'head' so I wonder if there's some smell/scent there which entices them! x

    Basset de fauve??? that it too sweet although tell your brother to keep an eye on the ear, I know of a dog who had to have nipples removed as a cat kept suckling on one to the point of it becoming enlarged and turned nasty (infections I think rather than cancer)

    Louie licks the older dogs ears.. but no one licks his, so I get a wet wipe (doused in ear stuff) and do it - tricking him into an ear cleaning - with the drops that he hates ;) :D

    Tess bites Rex's ears and makes the poor boy yelp. Does that count? No, I thought not.........
