Ok. My 7yr old Standard Schnauzer (Cagney) and my 5 month old English Springer (Rio) at least 3-4 times a day swap spit...not really but, Rio gos to Cagney and starts to chew her beard and lick her. Cagney (being very patient) starts to do deep thrust of her tongue in Rios mouth. Now Rio is teething. Do you think Cagney is trying to sooth Rios gums?? Its very weird to watch. Has anyone else experienced this??

Okay crazydays, not entirely sure on this one, but if I'm not mistaken the older one getting her tongue in the mouth of the younger one may be a dominance thing. I'm pretty sure it's not to help the teething though. They are cute though.
