I am so glad that someone asked this one. Meelah does the exact same thing! I always thought she was just strange! Afterall, we do call her our "special" dog..LOL There is one other thing that she also does that is weird. She tends to cuddle up with Mark more and the one spot that she licks is where her butt always touches the couch. She could be laying there, out like a light, and all of the sudden, she jumps up and sniffs that spot. If she passed gas , we didn't hear anything, and she always makes a little high pitch squeek when she toots!
I can take apart the cushions that you sit on but, not the ones attached to the back of the couch. i'll try that with the removable ones - thanks!Originally Posted by Millers Mom
Mine do the stand and sniff only after their anal glands have expressed. It's the one dead giveaway - faster than the smell!

And she hasn't been gassy or expressing her anal glands since.There are a lot of strange things our little doodlepug does and I wouldn't even know where to begin to think why she does them. Guess you have to be a pug to understand!
Hallie has never liked the couch but she licks our comforter like it's covered in steak!
I have a couch licker too. I think it's punishment for bad acts in a prior life. I wish I knew what I did to deserve this.

Add Rascal to the couch licking club. He can just drench a spot-we have covers for the couch, but still...He also licks the bed-loves to curl up on Papa's pillow (never mine) and start licking. Most unfestive.....

Glad we are not alone ...my hubby started to think we got something weird going on in our house since our cat loves to suck on cotton and now Zoey loves to lick the couch...maybe its from me since i loved to chew my cotton jacket hood strings as a child, hmmmm
Well, I guess I am lucky then. I also have the microfiber couch and The Colonel doesn't pay them much attention. Even though he wont stay off of them, he just wants to sleep while his is on them.
But how about Pillows...If i dont watch him real close he will go to my bedroom and lick my pillows then i will try to go to bed and put my face in a big nasty wet spot while he lays on his big, DRY, wool pillow next to me smiling.
Also, there isnt a blanket in the house that he hasn't sucked the corners off of.
No hope or answers here either. Milo licks the couch (denim covered) , the comforter , pillows , and the satin chair cushions in the kitchen amongst other things. No idea why he does it but he sure does enjoy it.
