Constant licking

Hi I'm Snoops' auntie, and I'm borrowing Cuddleparty's username to pose this question....

I'm just wondering why does Snoops constantly lick my mouth. Every time he gets a chance, he would jump on me and start licking my mouth.

Is he kissing me? Is it the flavour? Is it a dominant thing? Let me know! Thanks!

Its a submissive puppy thing ;) Puppies will like their mothers mouths for them to regurgitate food. Adult dogs retain this submissive gesture and lick the alphas mouth/face to mimic puppy behavior signaling to the alpha that they are helpless and not a threat, like a puppy.

:) Hope that helped.
