Lotion licker!!!

I know that basenjis will lick wet things dry, like your feet when you get out of the shower. I can accept that cat-like behavior. But does anyone else get licked after they put on lotion?

Cooper's favorite lotion to lick off of me is Aveeno. Guess he really likes the oatmeal!

Of course, I do try to discourage the practice, and he usually lets up once the lotion is all soaked in. 🙂

Stormie has a particular fetish for Brown Sugar and Fig lotion from Bath and Body Works. Loves, loves, loves the stuff! I really try to keep him from "indulging" (haha!), but he sneaks in a lick or two before I can stop him. Glad to know he's not the only b with a lotion fetish! 🙂

Both Gypsy and Jazzy will lick lotion from my legs – or they would if I let them. So far, Keoki hasn't seemed interested.

The woman for whom I babysit wears skirts about every day, and she uses lotion on her legs. Jazzy greets her every morning by licking her legs, too.

Nala LOVES to lick us after we put on lotion. Picture eachof us running away from her saying, "Get…get away....go on!" It's quite funny, actually.

Athena is just the opposite. She HATES the smell of lotion, pretty much any kind. To get her going on a tear through the house all I have to do is put on my eucalyptus hand lotion and let her smell it. She snorts and runs full speed around the place.

this is so weird. I put on the Aveeno lotion in the morning on my legs and the dogs seem to lick it all off….

Rocky is a purest… only tub water for him!

All 3 of our dogs lick lotion. Winzer (who has no departed- lab/staf mix) used to always lick the lotion from my hands. Sometimes I could not rub it in fast enough before he tried to lick it all off.

Helix always licks my hands when I put lotion on. His main fetish is water though. Everyday just as I'm getting out of the shower he is there already waiting and ready to do his duty. Tanga comes in shortly after that, then I have both licking me dry. When the last bit of wet spots start running out, there is usually a dispute between the 2 of them to see who gets to finish. I feel like property and a battle is raging on to see who will conquer and defeat.:D

Lissthor: your girl- Athena, not liking your eucalyptus lotion- does it smell kind of minty? Helix gives me this funny face when I have a cold and bring out the Buckley's rub. He sniffs it and pushes up his nose and gives a little "yuk" lick and walks away. It's funny:p

Mine are very specialized. After the shower, Nicky comes in and licks my feet dry. Not legs, only feet. Then I put lotion on my legs and Eddie licks that off. Next I start to towel off my hair and have to bend down so Topper can rub all over my hair. I have a very specialized clean-up crew.

It seems like Kali will lick any lotion of my mom and I, especially philosophy's amazing grace. She also likes the freshwater cucumber hydration gel from bath and body works…I always thought it was because of Kali being a water fiend. Is thirst a trademark of basenji's?

Hahahaha! I have to agree with that statement!
Chance will sit there waiting for me to get out of the shower. As soon as i grab the towel he goes to work. Licking of every drop of water. To the point that his tongue will stick to my leg. I have to run to the bedroom to get away! :o

I'm always having to shoo Rocky away after showers!

But get this! The other night he started to clean both my feet (no shower included!). He actually grabbed onto them with his fore-paws, laid over my shins, and spend the next half-hour licking my feet. He's never done that before. Talk about weirding me out!
