    Default Suckling in their sleep

    As I'm on EBN surfing, Mac is sleeping with his face stuffed into my side and he's just started suckling in his sleep! He was beginning to startle in his sleep and then he just startle suckling my sweatshirt. I'm melting!

    Otis suckles a stuffed ball every night and while he suckles he nods off - it's the cutest thing. I was told once that they suckle things because they (any puppy, not just EBD's) were taken from their mothers too early, not sure whether I believe that or not.
    Otis you'll never know how much I love you I love you more then all the leaves on all the trees

    My boy Tate does that often too. It is very sweet, isn't it? He suckles usually on his Mr.Bill stuffy as he's falling asleep. Puts Bill's head in his mouth and suckles noisily away.

    I's heard that as well but don't believe it since we got Mac when he was 5 months old. His breeder believed in keeping them a bit longer for vaccinations and whatnot and I completely agreed with her. I really feel for those who have spent all that time researching and then all that money only to have them contract parvo or something just as devastating. Believe it or not he wasn't the last one picked up either.

    Well I'm glad to know that someone else heard that as well, but I can't say as I believe - I do think it's a breed thing more then anything.

    Wilbur does this anytime he can....the minute I sit on the couch, he is RIGHTTHERE at my side, wanting my shirt/ hoodie. He balls it up in his mouth and suckles and drools all over the place. Sometimes he gets some of me ( lol)!
    i have never had the heart to " break" him of this.....

    Matilda does this while she's sleeping! I was a little offended because I thought it meant she missed her birth mother...

    Clara does not suckle regularly, but it does happen occasionally. Here it happened with my little piggy that cried wee wee wee all the way home.-uploadfromtaptalk1353114590803-jpg
