When my gf's family rehomed a golden retriever, he was very licky. No-one else minded, but I trained him not to lick me. To this day, he rarely does it to me, but continues as he used to with everyone else.
My german shepherd will stick her face right up to mine, and she'll occasionally flick her tongue out, but she is oh so careful not to touch it to my face because she knows I'll flip out. :D

Dogs are hilarious. Mine spent yesterday evening with a squeek toy in her mouth frantically racing back and forth on our slippery hardwood (uh, fake hardwood) floor, squeeking as fast as she could. You'd assume she just doesn't get enough exercise, but she plays intense games of frisbee almost every day (yesterday included)... Apparently it's just so much fun to slide around on the floor with a noisy fake animal in her mouth!

Awww. The aforementioned retriever's brother is a German Shepherd, he's getting a bit old bless him. Can't play as hard as he used to. Great dog though.

Dos lick. It's what they do. My dogs lick as an apology when I yell at them for licking me after I told them to stop licking me.

So.. just throwing that out. I'm not saying don't get a dog. Dogs are fun. I'm saying get used to dogs licking.

And if you have other pets with that puppy, that ratio goes to shits.

I'm told cat poop is a rare delicasy in puppy culture.

Skyrim isn't realistic enough. My dog follower wasn't pooping in the house, nor trying to eat everything.

Really? Most of the dogs we've had seem to acquire the taste for ice muffins when they're older. My dog didn't do it until she was at least a year old. My sister's 3 month old is about the same.

That's.. odd as pretty much all the puppies I've been around seem to enjoy eating poo for a bit, and tend to drop the trait completely around the year mark.

Also, lots and lots of weathertf.

I found crocuses this week! Six of them, blossoms up but still closed, and only in one spot, but still.

I think the weathertf delayed most of them. (Two inches of snow yesterday. The hell...)

I once said I think that people actually look like the people they put in their avatar pictures. For some reason this also applies to poxic. Maybe I think there are several humanoid bunnies around that spend their time on the internet.

I live in Minnesota. The poo gets frozen.

My dog also apparently watched too much South Park, and was a fan of Mr. Hanky. One Christmas she came in from being in the yard, and her head was coated in poo. She'd decided to have a nice roll in the fresh stuff.

Next year at Christmas we let her back in the house after being out in the yard. A little bit later she starts to get sick. Like 5 pounds of poo-vomit in the middle of the floor.

A dog rolling in poo is nothing. Wait until it rolls around in the decomposing remains of a badger. Mine did that once. The stench was unbearable, even after we'd washed him down.

Nothing more fun than giving a dog a bath at 3am because there's apparently a dead skunk covered in fermented badger semen in the backyard somewhere, and boy howdy did the dog find it.

I always find stealth fetish videos on youtube kind of creepy. At first you think it's odd that there's a video of, say, just a persons feet... then you notice the entire channel is only videos of their feet with people commenting on them called things like "Footlover2847" (Made up).
