Do your dogs lick themselves after eating Peanut Butter?

All 3 dogs in my house lick their front legs after eating peanut butter. Do yours do that?

Yup here too. They clean their feet and legs after pretty much anything they have consumed that they held with their paws.

Britty always does...Buster only does if he's eaten lots of it.

Britty also licks her front leg after eating squirt cheese or anything else kinda sticky...it's almost like she needs to get the sticky feeling off of her tongue so she licks her leg.

Lacey licks one front leg after having anything from a spoon. I think she's getting it off her tongue, and then the leg tastes good so she has to keep licking till its clean too. I've never noticed the other girls doing it.

Buckley doesn't but he licks his face for about 10 minutes afterwards then falls asleep. He's weird.

Whether she cleans herself up after eating (almost anything) depends on what she plans to do next. If she's ready to settle in for a nap she'll clean up, if its time to patrol the yard she won't bother.

We dip milkbones in peanut butter as a treat for our dogs. No licking involved. We never give naked peanut butter. I fear for my fingers.

All 3 dogs in my house lick their front legs after eating peanut butter. But Hope also licks her entire crate so I keep needing to clean the crate often so it won't be sticky. :roll:

Boomer licks his right leg, the other two smack their lips for a few minutes afterwards.

Buddy gets glassy-eyed for a teaspoon of peanut butter but that's about it.
