    Default Suckling?

    Does your pup suckle? Chuck will lay in his bed and suckle the side of it.. Even move his paws like he's kneading.. Is this common?
    I knew a Boston terrier ( who was atleast 10) who would do this to a little football for hours.. Thought he was taken away from mum too early.. Thinking maybe same reason, or maybe it has to do with the snout? Or maybe just big babies..lol..

    Both of mine who are 4yo do suckle; Finn suckles his football and Tate will suckle a stuffy as he falls asleep. I always thought it was like a pacifier that babies use, not really sure how it relates to them being taken away from their mom too soon though...

    I just thought cuz maybe they didn't get weaned properly so they miss it and do it..it's cute as ever though. Just wish it didn't make his bed so wet.. Have u seen or heard of a long snouted dog doing this? Or is it just our flat face babies?

    Harvey is most definitely entertaining with that alligator. Im starting to believe he obviously thinks he is a gator instead of a bully. I love reading about him!
