    Default Why can't Pugs lick their bottom lip?

    My daughter asked why Tucker can't lick his bottom lip, and I realized I had no idea why not. I assume it's a pug thing and not just Tucker (I really hope this is the case, or boy do I feel stupid). This is why she asked, he was eating some yogurt:



    The pink sore on his chin is from the Pug biting him at the beach!

    Paco also suffers from an inability to lick down. Of course he always knows something is there so he just keeps licking up in an effort to get it!

    That's kind of the face he makes too - "why can't I get it?!?"

    My husband says that's a good reason to have 2 Pugs. They clean each others face!

    Snifter can't lick down. But he is very good at wiping his yogurty chin on my trousers. Sigh.

    My girls can't lick down either, but they do a very cute lick-fest on each others faces!
